Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express anger over comments made by Joe Igbokwe, the Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State, about President Muhammadu Buhari.
Igbokwe, who appeared on Channels Television programme, Politics Today, on Monday, said that anyone with the insinuation that Buhari’s government has not done well is “a liar from the pit of hell”.
He blamed the country’s problems on the previous administrations since 1999.
He said: “You (PDP) were there for 16 years and we didn’t see anything. In the midst of plenty, I cannot lay my hands on anything. Support your leader, don’t be a distraction. Anybody who tells you Buhari is not doing well is a liar from the pit of hell given where we are coming from.”
However, some angry Nigerians took to the social media to express outrage at his comment.
@Ilynem, a twitter user said: Yes Joe Igbokwe, I’m from hell. So I’m in a good position to tell you that that place is currently better than PMB’s Nigeria.
Another Nigerian, @Amarachukwu_M, said, Oga Joe, even your father Tinubu was shocked at this your lie but concluded joe igbokwe thats my boy.
Another Nigerian on social media, opined: Joe Igbokwe a perfect replacement for Lai Mohammed chai… This man can lie ..Tinubu pickin
@udoka_james also stated, Can some help me locate thunder, fire and brimstone. Someone like Joe Igbokwe needs to be burnt to ashes. minion’s in this failed administration, will never go unpunished.
KARMA is always a bi*th.
@NonsoKings_CEO, took the matter to a new dimension, comparing it to European football transfer window.
:Dear Yoruba Nation, as the transfer window is ongoing, we the Ohaneze Ndigbo are offering you guys :Joe Igbokwe + Loretta Onochie + #50M in exchange for Femi Fani Kayode
Again, @Amarachukwu_M, added: ”I just pray when joe Igbokwe gets home his wife should give him the beating of his life for lying to Nigerians on live Tv what a husband and father. .Tinubu’s Pickin”
@yemmyskinny said, “Joe cannot see a better Nigeria than this one because where Buhari brain & his own follow the same path.”
