CNN Mocks Nigeria Over Buhari’s Continued Absence in Country
Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been mocked by Cable News Network (CNN) over his continued absence from the country while treating himself in London.
The television medium mocked the country in the latest edition of its “The Global Public Square (GPS)”, a foreign affairs show anchored by Fareed Zakaria.
The programme in its Quiz and Trivia segment asked, “The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria.
It went on to tick the option ‘Nigeria’.
Chidi Odinkalu, Former Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) posted a screenshot of the question on Twitter. Buhari had left Nigeria since May 7 for medical examination and treatment.
He has stayed out of the country for more than 80 days and has been receiving his party members who took pictures with him to prove that he is still alive.
