The former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has questioned why President Muhammadu Buhari, would address Nigerians in his Eid-El-Fitr message, in Hausa.
In series of tweets on Sunday, June 25, he stated: “President Buhari is the President of all Nigeria. He is not the President of only those who can speak/understand Hausa! This is an outrage!!”
Lashing out at the president, Omokri stated that it would have been better for Buhari to have kept quiet than for him to have spoken and erased any doubt that he is a sectional leader.
