The media aide to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Salihu Tanko, on Sunday, endorsed the ongoing protest against police brutality and condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of critical issues affecting the lives of ordinary Nigerians.
Mr Tanko, in a tweet, said that the action of the president is betraying those that voted him and typical supporters at the grassroots including himself who has been supporting the president since he debuted in politics.
Mr Tanko tweeted “I’ve never seen a government with zero emphaty like that of president Buhari. So many times when his people are going through difficult time and expect some sort of tab on shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge, but he failed to do so.
“The I don’t care attitude is on another level,” Mr Tanko wrote.
He added that “To speak to your people over issues that are bedevilling them has become something like a favour you are doing to them.
“Over and over again, you cannot spare five minutes and address the nation to calm them down, the same people you went round to the 36 states to beg for their votes, its heartbreaking,” the official wrote.
I’ve never seen a govt with zero emphaty like that of @MBuhari. So many times when his people are going through a difficult time & expect some sort of tap on shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge, but he failed to do so. The ‘i don’t care attitude ‘ is on another level
