Presidential aide blasts Wizkid for criticising Buhari

‎A presidential aide, Mrs Lauretta Onochie, on Tuesday blasted popular musician, Ayo Balogun, alias Wizkid, for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari.

‎Daily Tracker reports that Wizkid had attacked Buhari after the President wished United States leader, Donald Trump, a speedy recovery from the dreaded coronavirus disease.

Buhari sent the ‘Get Well Soon’ message to Trump when Nigerians had taken to a social media platform, Twitter, to campaign against the excesses of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Wizkid, in a tweet, told Buhari to concentrate on ending indiscriminate killings by SARS rather than worrying about the US ‎President.

“Donald Trump is not your business! Old man! Police/Sarz still killing Nigerian youth on a daily! Do something! Nothing concern u for America! Face your country !!” Wizkid wrote.

‎However, responding on Tuesday, Onochie, Buhari’s aide on social media, said Wizkid was ignorant, insensitive and childish.

She said in a post on Twitter, “It’s not disrespectful to call anyone old. It’s the way and manner Ayo Balogun addressed the President that leaves a sour taste in the mouth.‎

“He exhibited crass ignorance, insensitivity and childishness. But hey, he’s a #DumbkidNotWhizKid. When he grows up, he might learn respect.”‎
