NIGERIANS REACT TO CNN MOCKING NIGERIA
Some Nigerians have reacted to what they perceive as mockery of Nigeria by the Cable News Network, CNN. CNN had in the latest edition of “The Global Public Square (GPS)” challenge, a foreign affairs show anchored on CNN by Fareed Zakaria asked “The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
It went ahead to tick an option with the name Nigeria as the correct answer. The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari has been in London since May 7 on a medical check-up. Some political delegations including the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have been visiting President Buhari in London and have told Nigerians that the president is doing just fine and will soon return to continue his presidential duties.
A screenshot of the mockery tweeted by Chidi Odinkalu, Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) is given below.
