“The Global Public Square (GPS)”, a foreign affairs show anchored on CNN by Fareed Zakari, has drawn the anger of Nigerians for using President Muhammadu Buhari in a quiz.
The quiz said: “The head of state from which country has not set foot in his homeland in over two months?”
The options were given as Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Nigeria and Syria. The option, Nigeria, ws ticked as the correct answer.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari has been in London since May 7 on a medical follow-up. Some political delegations including the Acting President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo have been visiting President Buhari in London and have told Nigerians that the president is doing just fine and will soon return to continue his presidential duties.
Many Nigerians saw CNN’s action as mockery of Nigeria’s situation under Buhari.
