Nollywood actor and presidential aspirant, Yul Edochie has rebuke those mocking the president’s attire to Imo state, saying it is should be the least of our problems.
Leakblast.com reports that the President landed at the Sam Mbakwe Airport in Owerri, about 09:30 a.m on Thursday, and was welcomed by the state Governor, Hope Uzodinma, who had invited him to commission some projects in the state.
In the video shared on Instagram, the actor slammed Nigerians who made unnecessary comments over the president’s attire saying that we take unserious business as a serious one.
According to the father of three, Nigeria is plagued with so many issues like a high rate of unemployment, poverty, and insecurity which they all need to pay attention to, but people prefer to catch cruises with trivial matters.
Recall, former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and controversial author, Reno Omokri had mocked the low turnout of residents following the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to Imo state.
Reacting to the handful crowd who came out to welcome the President, Reno Omokri commended the residents of Imo for sitting at home during the president’s visit.
He also mocked the president’s outfit and ‘concocted’ mammoth crowd claimed by the press turned out to welcome him.
He wrote: ‘Look at the so called ‘mammoth crowd’ that turned up for General Buhari in Imo. Even Buhari’s cows that don’t increase in number are more than this crowd. What happened oga Buhari? Abi your trouser make Imo people fear? Imo’s state’s street were as empty as Nigeria’s treasury during Buhari’s visit and I commend all Imolites for heeding my call and others to reject the WAECless tyrant who has turned Nigeria to the world headquarters for extreme. Buhari, who is now a dot in a circle? You or Igbos?’
