Nigerians on social media, particularly on Twitter,
have reacted to Cable News Network (CNN)’s
trolling of President Muhammadu Buhari for leaving
the country on medical vacation for over 85 days.

Fareed Zakaria of CNN had on Sunday quizzed
president’s absence from the country when he
asked: “The head of state of which country has not
set foot in his homeland in over two months.”
Nigeria was listed among the options as option C,
while Saudi arabia, Cuba and Syria were on the list.

Below are some of the reactions of Nigerians:
Lere Olayinka @OlayinkaLere: “So sad, Nigeria now
a joke even on CNN.

Buhari Media Centre guys can
@Laurestar and others can start abusing CNN too.”
Adeyanju Deji @adeyanjudeji: “Washington Post
joins CNN to Mock Nigeria, says Buhari has been
gone for months on medical tourism; Calls the
president a liar.”

Babasola Kuti @SKSolaKuti: “Everything APC &
Buhari wished Nigeria to be under GEJ, IT IS…but
under their watch; Pariah state; laughing stock:
failed nation.”

money our governors are wasting to pay homage
to Buhari in London but no salaries to pay

“The veiled
admission of CNN over Buhari’s unfitness to
govern should be a reminder to all who court the
West for regime change in Africa.”

retirement home at London…
Tell CNN that.”
