These are the things that a President should do. This is leadership. You don’t not care about health workers strike just because your own doctors are abroad. What about the common man? Well done @bukolasaraki https://t.co/F9OCT511RQ

Nigerians on the platform didn’t go easy on the ‘common sense’ senator as some of they argued that Bukola Saraki is part of the All Progressives Congress, the ruling and also he is the senate president.

If you think Bukola Saraki (senate president) isn’t part of FG anymore, but who does the minister (an executive) represent at these types of meetings? We are archiving all of y’all tweets sha! Since most of y’all only care abt politics.

The legislative arms of this government is the major problem of this nations. Mr Ben coming to Twitter to tell us what a president should do is not the right thing but you will never do the needful because all of you patronized the foreign doctors. Non of you care about us.

Presidents don’t meet with strikining workers, the Labour Minister does that and the Senate can equally wade in to assist.
Just saying some commonsense

Oga, It is called Team work! Delegation of duty! What happened to the Minister of health? Stop being mischievous with every issue. And next time correct your typing, “You don’t not care”, whenever you want to rant based on your bad belle!
