On Sunday, US news network, Cable News Network (CNN) made a mockery of Nigeria over President Muhammadu Buhari’s prolonged absence from the country.
American journalist Fareed Zakaria, during the ‘GPS challenge,’ segment of the programme “The Global Public Square (GPS)” posed a trivia to viewers of his show:
A question on the Quiz and Trivia segment of the show read,
“The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
Nigeria’s President Buhari has been out of the country for nearly 3 months, seeking medical treatment in the United Kingdom and was not seen in public for many weeks until recently when he hosted some state governors and party chieftains.
Many Nigerians see the humour in the CNN question for what it is but many others see it as an insult but one for which they can only blame President Buhari who some say should have resigned in the best interest of the country.
