President Buhari Speaking To Nigerians In Hausa Is Derogatory 

20170424_074704

Some Nigerians  reacting to the voice message released by President Muhammadu Buhari to felicitate with  Muslims faithful  on the occasion of Eid-el Fitr in Hausa language said it’s derogatory.

According to the Presidency , Buhari, in the voice message in Hausa language  ‘thanked Nigerians for their consistent prayers for his well-being.’ urging  all citizens, irrespective of their socio-political affiliations, to always avoid hate speech and divisive tendencies capable of causing disaffection among them.

He also prayed for good harvest as farmers embarked on agricultural activities occasioned by the commencement of rains across the country.

However, reacting to the voice message in his Twitter handle, former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-kayode, said it was not President Buhari that spoke in the Sallah audio recording, and that it was an insult to Nigerians for the President to have spoken in Hausa language.

He said: “It was not @MBuhari that spoke in today’s Sallah day audio recording. And for whoever it was to address the nation in Hausa is insulting.’

Also, Reno Omokri, on the same platform,‏said: ‘President Buhari is the President of all Nigeria. He is not the President of only those who can speak/understand Hausa!

This is an outrage!” Bolu Ayeye also reacted: ‘I don’t believe the person who gave the Eid message was Buhari.’
