Uche Jombo, Nollywood actress, says President Muhammadu Buhari’s social media team should be replaced for releasing a tainted video of the president addressing Nigerians on the coronavirus crisis.
Buhari had been under pressure to address Nigerians over the rising cases of the pandemic in the country.
The senate had also demanded that the president release a nationwide broadcast to intimate Nigerians of his administration’s efforts towards combating spread of the killer virus.
But bowing to pressure, Buhari had released a video on Sunday — his first since the country recorded its index case on February 27 — where he addressed Nigerians.
The now deleted 23-second video, shared by Bashir Ahmad, his personal assistant on new media, has since been generating dusts after the president was seen struggling to pronounce coronavirus correctly.
Joining the fray, Jumbo said it was unfortunate that the president’s media team would approve the release of a video with error.
The actress said the development has made the country a subject of ridicule, adding that some of her Ghanaian followers have been making fun of the video.
“The whole of president Buhari social media team needs to be replaced over COVIK ONE NINE video for not correcting him, watched it and shared it,” she wrote on Twitter.
