Many Nigerians have expressed their disgust over President Muhammadu Buhari’s nationwide broadcast on Thursday night as the President failed to address the incessant loss of lives and destruction of properties in the country.
Oyogist.com learnt that the President further failed to address the shootings launched on peaceful protesters at the Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday night which led to the death of some protesters and many critically injured.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, while reacting in a statement on Thursday, described the President’s Speech as “very disappointing and “completely disconnected” from the realities of the tragic occurrences in the country in the last two weeks.
Also Apostle Johnson Suleman described the speech as ‘insensitive and useless’.
He said “Never had a more ‘wasted 12mins’ all my life…insensitive and useless speech..who gave the orders for people to be killed?.what’s d repercussions of such blatant impunity? nobody was fired for lives wasted?.no compensation for victims family?..I wish I can”unwatch” it..”
A Twitter User, @Unik_Barth said: “Who order the soldiers out and why did you not apologize for the gunshots of peaceful protester And the death of people”

“So of all these thread you make…you did nt for once address wat happened in lekki toll gate bt you cn talk abt palace of Oba nd tribute to the police dt died!! Wow you try nw we knw where we going nw”
@LaraSalami1 Nothing was said about the loss of lives during the protest. Ain’t you accountable for every citizen under you?”
