President Muhammadu Buhari was in a celebratory mood as he announced rescue of some Nigerians who were abducted by members of the Boko Haram group. According to the president via his official Twitter handle, there were the University of Maiduguri lecturers, abducted while on service to their fatherland, and also the women abducted from a funeral procession.
I can’t fully express the joy I felt I this afternoon, as I received our citizens recently released from Boko Haram captivity—fathers, mothers, sons, daughters. We will go to any length to ensure that no one is left behind in the hands of terrorists. Every Nigerian life matters! pic.twitter.com/5bQJKlfZuI

Some Nigerians were however very unimpressed with the president as they said it was just a show of propanganda. Here are some of their reactions;
Funny how captive of bokoharam are always released when ever the dailies carry unpleasant news about this administration.

And they’re looking this good?
It’s obvious that this government must always bring up something to save herself whenever something evil has happened to the nation.
Bros! Stop scamming us you hear.

this is just a political reaction to the problem. paying ransom to get a handful of ppl released will only lead to the kidnapping and killing of more ppl. and now BH will have resources to recruite more hands and expand their ‘business’

Indeed Boko Haram should even be commended for taking good care of these girls. They look so healthy more than the ones in our IDP camps.

Mr President sorry to say but the timing of this is so wrong. You cannot be in celebratory mood when there are 110 innocent children’s lives still in danger, no matter what you are celebrating Mr President. Stop playing politics with innocent children’s lives and get them home.
