Mixed reactions have continued to trail President Muhammadu Buhari’s Channels TV interview on Wednesday night.
In an interview hosted by Seun Okinbaloye and Maupe Ogun-Yusuf at the State House in Abuja, President Buhari answered questions on issues such as the declaration of bandits as terrorists, Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) leader, Nnamdi Kanu, and his successor come 2023.
In the course of the Channels TV interview, President Buhari also stressed the importance of farming to the economic propsperity of Nigeria.
In the aftermath of the interview, some Nigerians took to Twitter to air their thoughts, and on a platform where there’s no love lost for President Buhari, some reactions were scathing.
Some accused the President of not answering questions posed to him, while others were at a loss as to why President Buhari is fixated on farming, when there are other avenues to spur economic development in Nigeria
Here are some reactions to President Buhari’s Channels TV interview
@iSlimfit Buhari’s solution to every problem is farming.
@DemolaRewaju Only takeaway from the Buhari interview is that NASS must immediately amend the Electoral Reforms Bill and send it to Mr President. Nigeria must move beyond both Buhari and his fraudulent “we-don’t-understand-restructuring” APC party in 2023. Nothing good can come from them.
@OgbeniDipo President Buhari isn’t ready to entertain discussions on State Policing. Luckily, his tenure ends next year.
@Nesta_ehi I’ve seen lots of reactions from Buhari interview yesterday but we are not focusing on the part he said he already have a candidate for 2023. That should be focus of the matter IMO
@FS_Yusuf_ 7 years later, Buhari is still talking about Agriculture. He is still hoping that the Agriculture Ministry which he appointed a 17th-century Subsistence Farmer to manage. Buhari isn’t in 2022. Times has left him. We wasted 8 years.
@SteveDedee Buhari talks about Nigerians with so much disdain and disgust. He speaks like he’s talking about people who are spoilt and having it easy in life. Where does this hate come from?
Japa season in full swing according to Asemota
@asemota Many people who were on the edge about migration just made up their minds after the Buhari interview. 17 more months of abuse is too had to take.
On the other hand, some usual suspects cheered President Buhari’s Channels TV interview.
APC chieftain, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode hailed President Buhari for his wisdom in keeping his preferred candidate in 2023 secret.
