Nigerian Twitter reacts to Buhari’s speech
Hello! In case you just came back from Mars, President Muhammadu Buhari held a national broadcast earlier today.
After all, the country deserves a full disclosure why he had to spend 103 days in London tending to his health. Maybe a word or two about the ASUU strike.
Hold your thoughts!
He spent zero minute on either of the two. Not a single word. Were students disappointed?
what is more annoying to you? the fact that D broadcast was short or his failure to address pressing issues like ASUU #PresidentialBroadcast

#PresidentialBroadcast.. THE President failed to address pressing issues,ASUU. Isn't it more important than the social media ?.

And some were just miffed he said nothing about his state of health. Maybe something about the size of his medical bill.
A speech once in 3 months wont stop the hate speeches, neither can it keep Nigeria united. We deserve more than this! #PresidentialBroadcast

After absence from duty for 105 days, your employee has the guts to walk up to you and offer a 5 minute explanation 😂#PresidentialBroadcast

Nigerian Twitter, obviously, did not like the part about social media being scapegoated.
2 things were clear in d #PresidentialBroadcast. 1. They want to control Social Media so bad. 2. They refer to criticism as hate speech

Buhari sounded like he’s angry with the social media forgetting that the social media brought him to power

Will Emeka Ojukwu be happy about Buhari mentioning his name in that speech? Someone who, perhaps, has a direct link to where he is knows the answer to that question.

But there were thumbs for the president too.
I believe in my President let's support the unity in Nigeria and fight against all he wishes to fight against. #PresidentialBroadcast

This was suppose to be a speech and not discussion about problems and solutions. Stop taking critism too far people #PresidentialBroadcast
