Residents of Maiduguri on Wednesday turned out in their large numbers to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari to the state, but this time with a different song.
Instead of the usual Sai Baba!!, and hailing he enjoys in the city, the song changed to Bama so!! Bama so!!,which means we don’t want, we don’t like.
The residents who lined the streets from airport road to post office to the Sheu’s palace, were protesting against the president over his inability to tackle the insecurity in the state.
Some of the disgruntled residents include school children who had closed from school at the time the president arrived Maiduguri.
This is the first time president Buhari has received this kind of treatment from Borno State, which is one of his strong political base.
Buhari enjoys a cult-like followership in Borno state, having served as a military administrator before becoming president in 2015.
Some of the residents said they would have pelted the president if he was not driving together with their amiable governor.
There has also been wide condemnation of the president on the social media in Borno state since the Auno attack.
