Nigerians have taken to social media to express their disappointment, following President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide address on the ongoing critical situation in the country.
According to Buhari who wasn’t remorseful about the Lekki Massacre, Nigerians should stop protesting and everyone needs to get back to their daily activities.
“I call on our youths to discontinue the street protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions. Your voice has been heard loud and clear and we are responding.” Buhari said.
Another thing why Nigerians are disappointed in the nationwide speech was because the president refused to acknowledge the peaceful protesters that were killed at the Lekki Toll Gate on the 20th of October, 2020. Instead, he chose to talk about how the Oba of Lagos’s palace was looted.

He sounded absolutely unapologetic, like he is soo untouchable.. what a sorry excuse for a human being, we can’t afford to loose focus! We must match and protest for the lives lost and the entire massacre at lekki tollgate! Let’s not let them sweep it under the rug! #reformnigeria”

@jacksonpbn wrote “Buhari’s speech lacked leadership, empathy, sympathy, love for all. It was unapologetically proud of the #LekkiGenocide and offers no plans for justice to those killed. Those who advises Buhari are his greatest enemies!”
