President Muhammadu Buhari under serious fire for his comment after he was asked about security challenges across Nigeria and if there would be a different approach in tackling the issues.
Naijawaveztv recalls that Buhari said;
“I have just seen the IG, I think he’s losing weight, so I think he is working very hard,” the president replied.
His response has drawn criticisms across Twitter, especially with the increase in kidnapping, robbery and insurgency in several parts of the country.
Here are some of the tweets DAILY POST was able to curate:
@Amynullah1: He’s not supposed to joke on such a serious issue. Why naw, Baba why?
@ugwuvictor18: Please how does losing weight got to do with the increase in Kidnapping and killing in the country today..I think we are in more trouble.. God have Mercy ..
@gempluz: This is what y’all voted. The joke is on you…I mean you.
@TangbanFavour: No sensitivity of any form. You’re cracking jokes concerning the security situation in the country. So much for being president.

@boywene: Nigerians… Behold your Commander in Chief. The number one citizen of the federal republic of Nigeria. Nigeria will receive sense.
@Bariga2Dworld: So once you are losing weight now (even if it’s in a gym) it means you are working very hard on national security matters while insecurity persists.
@kelvinekerete: Nigeria is doomed!! God!!! What did we do to deserve this?
