Below is a full statement she released,

Dear Wailers,

1. Pres. Muhammadu Buharu, spoke to Nigerians, candidly, a day before the Inauguration. I believe he will speak again on Democracy day. He chooses when and how to communicate to Nigerians. There’s nowhere in our constitution where it says the days he must address Nigerians.

2. As with other world leaders, he can also choose to use the Social Media to communicate to Nigerians. We are quick to draw comparisons with America and the West, but we do not insist that our lawmakers earn same as their lawmakers earn or support our government the way they do.

3. I do not know when Nigeria became an extension of America. Any time there’s a small change to how we do things, the Landlords and their cronies throw a tantrum. There’ll be more changes to the ways we do things. Nigerians voted for change. And change they will have. Thank you.
