Famous Nigerian rapper Folarin Falana widely known as Falz has vehemently weighed in on the appalling tweet that came from the official Twitter handle of the President of Nigeria, Buhari.
Falz who wastes no time to air his thoughts about issues in the country chanced upon the warning tweet issued by Buhari to the many young people misbehaving in the country. Buhari cautioned such people to be aware of the destruction and the countless lives which were lost during the Nigerian civil war.
He added that ‘they’ that were in the fields for over 30 months fighting one of the greatest wars perfectly understand what they are trying to put across and they will treat them in a “language they understand”.
The warning tweet that came from the President’s official handle reads;
“Many of those misbehaving today are too young to be aware of the destruction and loss of lives that occurred during the Nigerian Civil War. Those of us in the fields for 30 months, who went through the war, will treat them in the language they understand.”
His tweet has however evoked an outcry on the microblogging platform and Nigerian singer Falz has reacted to his tweet.
Falz who wondered why such tweet will appear on the handle of the President asked whether he has ever sent such a warning to Boko Haram insurgents or even kidnappers and bandits. He added that all that he has been doing is traveling around the country and failing to address adverse issues going on in the country.
Falz who described the President’s tweet as “rubbish” replied to Buhari’s tweet by writing;
The rapper who further stated that Buhari tweeted “rubbish”, also asked the treatment given to kidnappers and bandits by the President he said “goes to London today and Paris tomorrow”.
What is this? Have you treated Boko Haram with the “language they understand”? What about the kidnappers & bandits ? Today you go London, tomorrow Paris. You are now coming here to tweet rubbish
