Those working for clean money will never call Nigeria hellish, Buhari’s aide replies Omotola Jalade

The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has countered a statement made by Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, directed at the All Progressive Congress-led government.

In a tweet, Bashir Ahmad said those who are working for clean money are not complaining and will never describe Nigeria as “hellish”.


This is coming after the actress had called out the president and his vice, Yemi Osinbajo lamenting “lack of money in circulation and “police brutality” in a tweet on Monday, April 15, 2019.

Omotola’s posts read;

“The country under your watch is hellish. The lack of money in circulation now coupled with the continuous assault and killings by uniformed men will make this country implode!,” she wrote on Twitter.

“It is unbearable! Do something! Insecurity! Fear and desperation everywhere.”

Ahmad further defended Buhari’s government by listing the contributions of the federal government to medium and small scale business.

He said,

Madam Omotola those who are working for CLEAN money are not complaining and will never refer our dear country as ‘hellish’.

“In Kano State alone, from 2015 to 2018, no fewer than 200 medium and small scale rice milling centres emerged. For that, billions circulated among millions.

“There are problems, and some have been with us since 1950s. Yes, I am partisan and I replied you because you mentioned @MBuhari and @ProfOsinbajo’s govt which I am working in.

“We as Nigerians, can you honestly say we are all acting like we have problems? Do we really pay taxes?

The call for an end to police brutality and other problems in the country has become a source of concern to activists, social commentators and well-meaning Nigerians.

Celebrities like Rugged man, 2 Baba, Banky W, Ali Baba, Omoni Oboli, Comedian I Go Dye, Eedris Abdulkareem, amongst others have constantly spoken out about the ineptitude of the government, politicians and legislators.

Nigerians on Twitter also expressed divergent views over Omotola and Ahmad’s outburst.
