President Buhari addressed the nation yesterday from the statehouse in a pre-announced message which was aired 7pm yesterday.
In his message, the president encouraged Nigerians to exercise their franchise on Saturday by going out to vote.
Recounting his achievement, the president encouraged the people to make their choices in Saturday’s poll.
The broadcast which seemed to have fallen on the anger of Nigerians received quick hit back on twitter
Many comments followed the president’s speech, many of which lambasted him for alleged using of the state fund for campaign, not being a responsible leader among others.
Here are some reactions on Twitter:
It is understandable that we all want to live comfortable lives. It is also important to realize that the most comfortable thing we can all do is to work hard and live within our means. pic.twitter.com/sFXHMdDmsM

You said you can’t trust other tribes to appoint them to sensitive positions in your government, this goes a long way to show that you’re not fit to be their leader. Nigeria needs a government that will bring progress which you are just the opposite of. We need a new Nigeria 🇳🇬

Have u noticed how often the buhari admin abuses the concept of “living within your means”? People are dying and hunger is everywhere. Businesses are shutting down, no inflow of FDI. Ppl r already living far way below means in a ruthless austerity sir. In case u haven’t noticed.

For 4 years, Buhari shielded himself from Nigerians. He even refused to address our press. There was a time we had Presidential Media Chats. All gone down the drain. But in 3 months, Buhari has toured the whole country and addressed the country thrice. Are we fools? #RejectBuhari

Think about it, Buhari didn’t speak to you until few days to Election.
SARS Killing Nigerians he never said anything, Soldiers killed in North East, all he did was sent you a memo through Lie Mohammed. You have few hours to choose now. Think it twice! After Saturday??

Lol. We begged you. For almost 4 years. To address the nation. We were being killed, harassed. One disaster after the other. We begged for empathy. Then maybe just sympathy. But you wouldn’t even do that much. And now, you are ready to talk to us. To beg for votes. https://t.co/4himI8PA5s
