This week, Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari made a joke and many Nigerians didn’t find it funny.
At the airport when the president returned to Nigeria after a 10-day vacation to London, a journalist asked him about the recurring kidnapping on the Kaduna-Abuja highway.
His response was that he believed that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Abubakar Adamu has been working hard to curtail it because “he’s losing weight.” Watch the video below.

So after all the killings and kidnapping that has be ongoing, all that Buhari has to say is that he believes the IGP is working because he has lost weight.

Naira Marley is a Goal
