President Buhari Delivers Eid-el-Fitr Audio Message in Hausa | Twitter NG Reacts 



Twitter NG is reacting to President Muhammadu Buhari‘s Eid-el-Fitr audio message which he delivered in Hausa.

The Presidency on Sunday, released Buhari’s voice message to Nigerians to debunk reports that he is suffering from speech impairment.

There have been several reports claiming that the President is suffering from speech impairment and memory loss.

However, in the recording, aired on Sunday by some radio stations, the President was heard felicitating with Nigerians on the occassion  of Eid-el Fitr.

Buhari thanked Nigerians for their consistent prayers for his well-being.

The President also urged all citizens, irrespective of their socio-political affiliations, to always avoid hate speech and divisive tendencies capable of causing disaffection among them.

He also prayed for good harvest as farmers embarked on agricultural activities occasion by the commencement of rainfall across the country.

A presidential source on Saturday had earlier confirmed to NAN that “the President is getting better “will return to Nigeria very soon”.

Buhari left Abuja for London on May 7, to see his doctors for follow-up medical checks.

    He doesn’t seem to realize he is the president of Nigeria, not the president of Northern Nigeria.

      Yoruba will not say amen to your wishes. Truth is no tribe wants to stay with the Hausa fulani. They are just cowards, if Igbo succeeds and bails out of Nigeria, every region will take leave too.

    This is very disheartening. In as much as I wish PMB gets well soon, I think He should honourably resign. This is too embarrassing?

      Biko do not call Nigeria zoo. It is highly disrespectful to call your fellow human beings animals. It does not show wisdom and maturity, Please think for yourself and do not let those radicals think for you.

      Errm, zoo doesn’t refer to just where animals are kept. Look up your dictionary

    PMB is always in the news for the wrong reasons….. I pray for his healing and as well for him to resign and take care of himself for his loved ones. The labours of our heroes past, present and future shall not be in vain. God bless Nigerians.

    I think this message was sent specifically for certain members of the country. I want to believe it was meant to quench to an extent the dissenting rhetoric we have been getting from the north lately. I mean they are the ones likely to blindly follow a leader who ll wrap atrocities under “religion”….and the vast majority don’t understand your “tourenchi”; how best to get across to them than through thier native dialect in the voice of thier “hero”?
    If you have ever been to the northern region, you would know those dudes are forever with thier radio…
    Thus, I believe this message was a strategic one. Doubtful it was meant as a slight to any other tribe in Nigeria.
    My only problem is, it would have been much more effective to air 2 messages, one in English alongside the Hausa one.???

      Air one in Hausa? Excuse me, he is not president of northern Nigeria

    Just have a strong feeling it isn’t real. People be aware of the times. There are really cabals behind the scene that want to make Nigeria ungovernable. This may be what some people had in mind. They knew this would happen

    President of the northern elite, courtesy of the northern elite, released a felicitation message to his northern elite, who in his mind are the only Nigerians that exist, and una carry the thing for head? Did you all really think you were in his/their thoughts? Sigh.

      President of which northern elite? Study Buhari well, he hates elite of any region and they detest him. Buhari is a bigot, plain and simple. No need to curse him though, for his covetousness and evil nature he is already burdened by the wrath of God. As for the real cabal of Aisha and Osinbajo that as per usual leaked audio to bbc thinking they were scoring goal. Well done on scoring a massive own goal. 2019 is not far again.

      Nnandi KANU isn’t even a black man! Buhari speaking in Hausa is more attuned to Nigerian specificity than Nnandu KANU on a dark day.

    Was the president suppose to speak English on a BBC hausa service? We play too much in Nigeria.

    • Moha

      June 26, 2017 at 10:41 am

      I just don’t understand the hatred for PMB by the readers of this medium. BBC Hausa Service gave him audience and spoke in Hausa and all of a sudden he is being demonize. Was he supposed to speak English on Hausa program? The hate for this man is unbelievable…

    • Asa

      June 26, 2017 at 1:33 pm

      BBC Hausa service gave him audience? BBC Hausa service gave him audience when NTA is his personal medium? When reporters from every media house possible are attached to the President? Lola and Moha, if you people are young people, you two are part of Nigeria’s problem. A President’s message to his people ought not to come as a result of who gave him audience! He is the President of a Nation where English is their Lingua Franca, his message ought to be in English and if BBC Hausa cannot carry the message then tough for BBC Hausa! So if a spanish speaking channel had given him audience he should have spoken in spanish? So if an Igbo channel give him audience nko? Will he speak in Igbo? Alon with the President’s kitchen cabinet, uan two no well! What rubbish? BBC Hausa gave him audience. Is he begging anyone to grant him audience?

      Are you serious? Is Hausa the official language of the Nation?

    It’s not personal. No one hates Buhari.
    Right thinking Nigerians hate the fact that he is our president, especially at this critical time, a position he is in no way or manner, qualified for! !!
    Nigerians vote emotionally. So sad!

    Hmm ppl are saying BBC Hausa gave him audience that was he to speak in English? Bro, Sis he is the president of Nigeria, all media would grant him audience, if he just ask. Can we just stop with the hypocrisy? it was wrong for him to address Nigerians in Hausa after 50days.

    Come to think of it who are the target audience of BBC Hausa?
    And playing the devils advocate- is there a BBC service for other langages in Nigeria- should the president be a guest on the other services and send a message in other Languages too?
    Hummmm! The multifaceted problem called Nigeria.

  17. Lets be real

    June 26, 2017 at 6:02 pm

    I don’t understand why everyone is so upset. The proof is in the pudding. Cant you read between the lines? The president has had several brain surgeries and he has lost his short term memory. He can not remember the English language any longer. His long term memory only remembers Hausa.
