The media aide to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, Salihu Tanko, on Sunday, endorsed the ongoing protest against police brutality and condemned President Muhammadu Buhari’s handling of critical issues affecting the lives of ordinary Nigerians.
and typical supporters at the grassroots including himself who has been supporting the president since he debuted in politics.
Mr Tanko tweeted “I’ve never seen a government with zero emphaty like that of president Buhari.
So many times when his people are going through difficult time and expect some sort of tab on shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge,
but he failed to do so.
“The I don’t care attitude is on another level,” Mr Tanko wrote.
He added that “To speak to your people over issues that are bedevilling them
has become something like a favour you are doing to them.
I’ve never seen a govt with zero emphaty like that of @MBuhari.
So many times when his people are going through a difficult time &
expect some sort of tap on shoulder to reassure them that he is in charge, but he failed to do so.
The ‘i don’t care attitude ‘ is on another level
Mr Tanko also told PREMIUM TIMES that the ongoing protest against police brutality has not been given an adequate response by the president,
saying such issues affecting ordinary Nigerians need more attention.
“Before the protest on EndSARS, there are issues affecting the security of lives in the north
and numbers of projects that need the president attention for completion, however, the president has chosen to remain adamant.
