VIDEO: Borno People Boo Buhari, Reject His Condolence

borno-boo-buhari

If President Muhammadu Buhari, who went straight from his Ethopia trip to condole with Borno people thought he would be enthusiastically welcomed, then he must have been mistaken.

Some residents of Borno state on Wednesday booed Buhari as his convoy made its way into Maiduguri on Wednesday.

The president was in Borno to condole with the people over the latest Boko Haram attack that left 30 people dead on Sunday at Auno, near Maiduguri.

As the convoy of the president made its way, some residents shouted in Hausa: “Bama so!” “Bamayi!”, which translates to “We don’t want; we’re not interested.”

Borno, normally, is a stronghold of the president. During his previous visits, crowds lined up on the streets, chanting “Sai baba!”

On the love lost between Buhari and Borno people, one Twitter user wrote: “If what I’ve been hearing from the people welcoming President Buhari to Maiduguri is all but to judge, then the people of Borno are not happy. Just an opposite of his earlier Visits. “Bama so” “Bamayi!” This is really serious. There must be a change of strategy in Fighting BH.”.”
