The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR took to Twitter to transmit a piece of his mind on popular trend, #ThisIsNigeria, courtesy of Falz the Bahd guy. The President, who is known for swiftly reacting to matters affecting Nigeria, utilised twitter to give his own account of the trend. The tweet which was posted on his personal page on June 11, 2018 — a day to June 12 celebrations — read; “#ThisIsNigeria where our lazy youths only complain about #EndSars”.

While many Nigerians and friends of the country must be worrying about what could have prompted the action, our reporter gathered from the President’s media team that the President was beginning to get tired of Nigerians always blaming him for problems he inherited when they could be focused on other activities. The media team through Mr. Femi Adesina said, “He is tired of people blaming him for problems PDP acquired over 16 years of existence, there is only so much that he can do.” Mr. Adesina mentioned further, “Nigerian youths can focus on being lazy or doing yahoo yahoo, instead of trying to protest unfair treatment in their country.”

Nigerian youths over the past few days have reawakened the #EndSars campaign after members of FSARS started arresting young men randomly, detaining and dehumanising them on accusations of cultism. The social protesters directed their anger towards the Presidency, whom they consider incapable, for turning blind eyes and deaf ears to their complaints. The hardworking President has since reacted, telling Nigerian youths to stop complaining.

This is a satirical piece meant to evoke anger and insight, you may want to read between the lines as you devour it. On the other hand, maybe this is just the stark situation of things. Either way, I need more booze.
