Abuja, Nigeria | THE INDEPENDENT | In his first address since his return from treatment abroad, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has warned about divisive comments on social media.
“Nigerians are robust and lively in discussing their affairs, but I was distressed to notice that some of the comments, especially in the social media have crossed our national red lines by daring to question our collective existence as a nation. This is a step too far,” he said. (Video bottom)
Buhari returned home on Saturday after spending more than 100 days in London receiving treatment for an undisclosed illness.
Wearing a black caftan with a cap to match, the 74-year-old left the aircraft unaided and was met by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and other senior government officials, including ministers, security chiefs and state governors.
