Nigerians have continued to mock President Muhammadu Buhari over the guard of honour mounted by a contingent of bagpipers ostensibly drawn from the military.
The dozens of bagpipers, men and women all dressed like Scots in plaid shorts, rather than skirts wearing berets and boots in a presidential reception for Buhari who has being globetrotting in cash strapped Nigeria, has left Nigerians reeling.
Kayode Ajulo, former National Secretary of the Labour Party and an Abuja-based lawyer, said: “When you’re in an Air Conditioner powered room, you tend to forget how hot it is outside. That’s exactly how it is with our leaders, President Buhari doesn’t know how hot things are in Nigeria. He doesn’t know our pain. He therefore needs our prayers.”
In another facebook post, Emmanuel Mc-Donalds Onuoha, wrote: President Buhari of Junketing Republic arriving Nigeria on an official working visit,” while Amonia Rita Stewart, was more direct, “What nonsense display is this?? Are we Scots??? Why all the razzmattaz??”
Buhari since his inauguration as president on May 29 last year has travelled to more than 22 countries despite dire economic situation at home.
