President Muhammadu Buhari has been often accused of being indifferent with the plight of Nigerians. On several occassions, Nigerians have cried out about injustice suffered in the hands of some members of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Fulani herdsmen, armed bandits on the Abuja – Kaduna road and Boko Haram.
Many Nigerians have said severally that the president’s silence on these issue make them feel like they have no leader. However, the president in a swift response, reacted to news that some All Progressives Congress, APC lost some of its lawmakers to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP which is now the majority party in the senate as a result.
This quick response sparked a lot of reactions amongs some Nigerians on social media, saying the president’s response to the party’s problem has revealed what his priorities are,
See reactions below
Nigerian troops were recently killed by Boko Haram. Yesterday, photos of their mass burial surfaced. They paid the ultimate price for Nigeria. Not a word appreciating them or consoling their families from President Buhari. Yet in 1 hour Buhari responded to defecting APC Senators

Don’t tell me President Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari is not aware of what’s happening in his government and cabinet and the Nation at large. The ones that personally affect him he responds to within 12 hours. It’s the ones that affect the people he can’t be bothered with

See how promptly Buhari responded to the defections today.
But no word from him on the scores of slain soldiers, victims of violence on Abj-Kaduna highway or SARS brutality.
How do some people in all good conscience keep support for PMB?
I don’t understand
