CNN mocks Nigeria, asks where is President Buhari




U.S. Cable News Network, CNN, has mocked Nigeria, asking which president has not stepped on his homeland in the last 2 months and then placing Nigeria as one of the option in the game.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari left Nigeria on May 7 for United Kingdom for the second round of his medical treatment and was only sighted last week following visits from state governors and chiefs of All Progressives Congress to his residence in London.

The news television in a query on its website on Sunday asked which “head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”

The mockery came in the latest edition of CNN’s “The Global Public Square (GPS)” show anchored by Fareed Zakaria. In an apparent mockery of Nigeria and her President Muhammadu Buhari, CNN, on its programme displayed at 4:59pm local time on Sunday, asked,“The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”

It went ahead to tick an option with the name Nigeria as the correct answer. The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria. A screenshot of the mockery tweeted by Chidi Odinkalu, Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission asked What do you say Nigerians?

Other political delegations including the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have been visiting President Buhari in London and have told Nigerians that the president is doing just fine and will soon return to continue his presidential duties.
