There’s a mixed feeling about this trend. Some Nigerians are happy that Trump allegedly called Buhari ‘lifeless’. It was reported that after having a meeting with him, Trump said he doesn’t want to meet someone as lifeless as Buhari again… One user tweeted, “Buhari went abroad to call us criminals and lazy. So, if Trump calls him lifeless, nothing spoil…” Another said that “If the leader of the Free World can’t stand @MBuhari and believes that he is absolutely ‘lifeless’, can Nigeria expect any cooperation from the West with Buhari in charge. We need an assertive leader who can look Trump in the eye and say NO! Buhari is not that leader…”
Other tweets were in defence of Buhari though.
