Incidents & Issues

Ms Opukiri Bolouere , a Nigerian public servant in the presidential amnesty office, lost her job after criticising the Vice president and the First Lady of the Federation in a social media post. She described then acting President, Yemi Osibanjo as a ‘novice’ for travelling out of the country during the period President Buhari was receiving medical treatment in London and tension was heightened between the executive and legislature. In another post, she suggested that Mrs Buhari might not be as classy as former first lady, for ranting against some ‘hyenas and jackals’ within her husband’s inner circle.
