‘What a shame!’ — Twitter reactions to Buhari, Osinbajo town hall meeting



Kadaria Ahmed, media personality, kicked off The Candidates, a town hall meeting for participants in the elections.

Four political parties were selected for the programme. The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) took the lead on Wednesday.

At the end of the programme, some Nigerians took to social media to assess President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice -President Yemi Osinbajo.

Here are some reactions:

Ebube The Statesman@akaebube

Watching #NGTheCandidates on NTA

Baba is fumbling like Bakayoko of Chelsea as usual
He can't hear or answer simple questions well

So Osinbajo is now doing a Kante for him
He is intercepting all the passes and covering up for him

Fam, We need to sell this Bakayoko this season

Well at least he's lively now that they are talking about his beloved grazing rights, Buhari insists on grazing routes


Ayobami@dondekojo

Osinbajo just talked about ranching after his boss insisted on grazing routes. These people are confused. #NgTheCandidates

On Ganduje issue, history will remember that a President once touted for integrity, chose the path of political expediency, aka "5Million" votes, over $5Million kick-back collecting Governor, in a state with millions of out-of-school children (the highest in NGR)

May an honest, candid, courageous APC supporter, explain to me in a cohesive, logical and rational way WHY their party didn't simply field @ProfOsinbajo as candidate OTHER THAN 'ZONING'?

May Northerners explain to me why they would/would not have voted for PYO?

Is anyone listening to VP Osinbajo on #NgTheCandidates ?Only the enemy of Nigeria will say @ProfOsinbajo will not succeed @MBuhari as the next president come 2023, the man is just first among equals. It is not about it's south east turn it is about putting the best foot forward.

When the presenter asked Buhari a question and Osinbajo wanted to answer for him.

What’s the solution to the conflict between farmers and herdsmen?

PMB: we studied grazing routes from the 1st republic. Benue Governor shouldn’t ban grazing but provide routes for grazing.

This is embarrassing. This govt is nonexistent without PYO. #NGTheCandidates

The person who asked the question on almajirai sounded like he wanted @mbuhari to use his influence and clout in the North to help address this evil, untamed monster of child exploitation, abuse and neglect in the name of almajirci. #NgTheCandidates

Kadaria asked the President why he has a ranch while he supports grazing routes, Osinbajo immediately jumped on the question #NgTheCandidates He's really afraid for his boss

President @MBuhari is a spectator at a town-hall interaction he should be bossing, while @ProfOsinbajo is doing all the talking. Members of the audience are intermittently applauding Osinbajo while Buhari remains quiet, watching his deputy's lips. WHAT A SHAME!!!#NgTheCandidates

People, please what was your moment of the Buhari-Osinbajo town-hall Q&A?

Mine was that moment @ProfOsinbajo attempted to speak for @MBuhari, as he'd done many times all night, and Kadaria Ahmed interjected, saying: "He can talk for himself."

Chae!#NgTheCandidates
