President Buhari was in Kano yesterday, March 3rd for the Wedding of Fatiha of Idris Ajimobi and Fatima Ganduje, the son and daughter of Governor Ajimobi and Governor Ganduje respectively. Angry Nigerians stormed social media to express their disappointment saying that Buhari, who couldn’t visit Benue and Taraba where many Nigerians were killed by Fulani Herdsmen, and is also yet to visit Dapchi, where over 100 girls were kidnapped by boko haram could attend a wedding in Kano. Here are our top 10 reactions.
I’m of the opinion that President Buhari should visit Dapchi where 110 school girls were abducted by Boko Haram.Kano is not far from Yobe State.
The other time, he was in Nasarawa State, but didn’t visit its next door neighbour, Benue where over 70 people were killed by herdsmen.

President Buhari rightly canceled multiple events when his son, Yusuf, was in hospital. But seeing Buhari celebrating and dancing in Kano while #DapchiGirls parents are weeping, while Zamfara is mourning, while Kaduna is burning and Adamawa is on fire, is a new low for Nigeria!

So President Buhari is going to Kano today for wedding of the daughters of Ganduje/Ajimobi but couldn’t visit Dapchi or Benue, Adamawa or Taraba? Kai
The way Buhari was screaming when Chibok happened and insulting GEJ, you will think he will be in the bush now in Lake Chad.

These are States were hundreds of Nigerians have been butchered and killed in the last 6 months.
Buhari SWORE TO LEAD FROM THE FRONT. He never thought it wise to visit any of these states. But he is in Kano for a wedding.

Okay, let’s rehash.
Buhari hasn’t bothered to visit Benue, Dapchi or Rann.
But he found time to visit Kano, for a wedding.
Nigerians don’t have a problem with glaring incompetence & insensistivity from their leaders – as long as their leaders come from “the right ethnic group”

President Buhari attends wedding in Kano, but REFUSED to visit Benue where scores were slaughtered by terrorist herdsmen. Mr Buhari daily, through his actions and the inactions, tells us where his priorities lie.

President @MBuhari is in Kano for a wedding. Scores of citizens he swore to protect were killed in Benue, Zamfara, Taraba etc and the closest he has shown empathy is invite the leaders of the affected groups to the Villa. This is what leaders go down for in sane societies.

It’s totally unwise for Buhari to have gone to Kano for a wedding when he’s yet to visit Yobe (where some girls were abducted) and places like Borno, Mambila, Benue, Zamfara etc. where several people died. The critics have been given something to talk about.

President Buhari has not considered it expedient to visit Dapchi where over 100 school girls were kidnapped but has all the time to attend a wedding ceremony in Kano. This is not how responsible leaders behave in the 21st century. Buhari’s apparent lack of empathy is sickening.

Dear President @MBuhari. You have the time to visit Kano for a wedding Fatiha of Ganduje and Ajimobi’s children but had no time to visit Benue, Taraba, Dapchi/Yobe and other regions under attack by insurgents and herdsmen. Remember, you promised to lead from the front. pic.twitter.com/08FY6yBhZp
