”Apparently, Buhari invited @BillGates to @AsoRock thinking he‘d praise him, but got the shock of his life when his guest attacked the handling of the economy, saying it doesn’t meet Nigeria’s needs, citing Nigeria as “one of the most dangerous places in the world to give birth”!
The present economic templates being used by the Muhammadu Buhari government do not have the ability to address the unique needs of Nigerians at present, American business magnate, Bill Gates, has said”[email protected] quoting @BillGates. Is Bill Gates now a wailer like Aisha?
Dear Buhari, not everyone will lie to you like APC appointees. Is @BillGates now a wailer? He doesn’t need your money. Truth hurts. Please listen to the bitter truth that your economic plans “do not have the ability to address the unique needs of Nigerians at present” and GO away
We dont want to hear that the Buhari administration has withdrawn @BillGates’ visa because the man was bold enough to tell Buhari that his economic plans are inadequate. We need more people like Mr. Gates who can tell the gerontocrat st the Villa the bitter ugly truth to his face
Dear @realDonaldTrump, please put your embassy in Nigeria at alert. @BillGates has just told truth to power and in Nigeria, speaking the truth to Buhari is often considered as ‘hate speech’. I don’t know if you are aware, but the APC has a bill prescribing death for hate speech!”
Meanwhile Ben Bruce reacting to the same statement wrote:
”Truth to power! More grease Mr. @BillGates, more grease!
The shots fired by @BillGates at @AsoRock today were timely and well said. This government has spent three years blaming the previous administration and not enough time preparing its own economic plans and implementing them. It took a foreigner to say this truth to power. Kudos!”.
