Nigerians React As Buhari Avoids Lekki Shooting During Speech

Nigerians have expressed their dissatisfaction after President of Nigeria, Buhari avoided reacting to the Lekki Shooting/Lekki Massacre on October,20 where peaceful #EndSARS protesters were reportedly fired at by security operatives.

President Buhari addressed Nigerians today in a nationwide broadcast and many Nigerians felt it would have been the perfect time for the president to react to the Lekki Massacre which happened two days ago.(In case you missed Buhari’s speech Read Here)

The issue was totally ignored by President Buhari in his nationwide address as he spoke about the government’s achievements with Npower and Tradermoni.

Nigerians are however left in shock after President Buhari refused to speak about the Lekki Massacre.

See some of the reactions below:

@RealDreylo: Buhari expressed concern for Oba of Lagos but didn’t say anything about Lekki protesters getting killed. Ok

@dareynow: I think the President’s speech lacked empathy and hope. Two key things needed at such a time as this. Please share YOUR thoughts

@oyimzy: I watched the recorded live broadcast from the beginning to the end and nothing made sense. This Jubril guy sorry Buhari has no sympathy for our lost heroes at Lekki toll gate he didn’t even mention a word about it, wow!

@MrOdanz: Buhari did not acknowledge or even offer any words of condolence to those who have lost their lives in the two weeks of the #ENDSARS protest. He is there telling the international community not to “jump into conclusion” and warning youths that their protests won’t be “tolerated”

@trending_medic: Buhari acknowledged the Police Officers that died but didn’t deem the victims in Lekki and Lagos important enough to give a word.
