Popular nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington on Tuesday, criticised the Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari, Lauretta Onochie for sharing a picture of children using cardboard papers as face masks.
Onochie posted a picture on her Twitter page as she beckoned on Nigerians to ensure they wear facemasks.
Alongside the picture, she wrote: ”Wearing a mask is not a political statement, it’s not punishment by government. Protect yourself, Wear one. These have made efforts with masking where those of us who are more vulnerable and susceptible to COVID-19 are still saying that it’s a scam. God bless their efforts.”
Reacting, Etomi-Wellington expressed her disappointment at the photo of the little children, calling Onochie a disgrace both “home and abroad.”
”You are a disgrace. Both home and abroad. You should be ashamed that these children have to do this with cardboard.
“Instead of talking about how to tackle poverty so that they can be protected adequately against the virus, you are spewing this nonsense,” she tweeted
The actress stressed that the picture made her so angry and ”brought tears to my eyes and finally proved to me that some persons are dead on the inside.”
“They are so small, so vulnerable and so unprotected. Arghhhhhh. THIS COUNTRY.
“I am finally accepting the fact that some human beings, really are dead on the inside. Didn’t understand how that could even be possible. I’m realizing every day that it is,” she added
