Nigerian actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has taken to social media once again to call out the current administration led by President Muhammadu Buhari and vice-president Yemi Osinbajo.
Omotola has been quite vocal in her criticism of the Nigerian government and the state of the country in recent times.
In her tweet she said:
The Country Under your watch is Hellish! @YOsibanjo @MBuhari @NGRPresident The lack of Money in circulation,Now coupled with the Continuous Assault n Killings by Uniformed men will make this Country implode!!!It is Unbearable! Do something!Insecurity!Fear n Desperation everywhere

This post has triggered many reactions on social media as some supported her view and some see it as offensive.
Omotola described Nigeria as “HELLISH” under Osinbajo & Buhari’s watch.
Bashir jumped on the tweet and he replied: “..those who are working for clean are not complaining…”
I.e. ➡everyone complaining about Nigeria are into dirty business.
Bashir is a Nigerian YOUTH. pic.twitter.com/IhanaMWokF

Omotola’s view reflects the views of millions of poor Nigerians;throwing mud on her cannot not twist the reality.

If Nigeria is as heavenly as some of the reactions to Omotola’s tweet suggest, who are the people running to Canada? Why is everyone, from office holders to anyone who can save up for a ticket working to have an American child? Can we at least even face our truths?

Madam Omotola those who are working for CLEAN money are not complaining and will never refer our dear country as ‘hellish’. In Kano State alone, from 2015 to 2018, no fewer than 200 medium and small scale rice milling centres emerged. For that, billions circulated among millions. https://t.co/nWprKIgpLC

The fiery speak-truth-to-power Omotola that I know is making her voice heard again! 👍 https://t.co/fv2S5gj9Yp

So Omotola called out the government on important issues and the same people she spoke up for, the same people who are broke and need help are slamming her?
You think Omotola is a hungry girl?
I will keep saying that the youths of this nation are not ready.
