Ezekwesili knocks Buhari for IGP weight loss comment

Oby Ezekwesili

Former presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has knocked President Muhammadu Buhari for his statement about rising insecurity in the country.

Mr Buhari returned to the country on Sunday after a 10-day ‘private visit’ to London, United Kingdom.

When the president was asked at the airport if there would be a different approach in the fight against insecurity, Buhari, with a little smile on his face, said: “No! Have you seen the IG? I think he’s losing weight so I think he’s working very hard.”

The former education minister, apparently displeased with his comment, bared her mind in a tweet on Monday.

“And this is supposed to be funny?” She asked.

“A President @MBuhari making a joke of the daily drenching of the country in the blood of his citizens who are killed daily without ANY consequence while he bears the title ‘Commander-in-Chief’ ? Carry on. Someday the Citizens will be ready.”
