The President's broadcast was characterized as a disappointment and national humiliation by the United Movement for New Nigeria.
Such an illogical, disjointed and significantly empty speech by President Buhari is an insult to all Nigerians' collective sensibility. The speech of Mr. President lacks hope, direction, intent and solution to the basic and fundamental questions on the ground. His platitudinous and provincial surrender to the Nigerian nation is nothing but a national tragedy and ridicule.
He blatantly declined and retained an unhealthy taciturn at the heat of the increasing protest and heated demonstration when the President was mainly required to intervene and address the country. Instead, he ordered the massacre at the Lekki toll gate of innocent Nigerian youths. It is quite sad that Mr. President can only find it worthy of addressing Nigerians after certain world leaders have placed a lot of pressure on him. Even the lifeless bodies of innocent Nigerian people were scattered all over the place.
In such an irrationality called broadcast, no accountable and right-thinking President will indulge. Such queer pessimism in judgment challenges his state of mind.
The Unified Movement for New Nigeria is calling on the President to tender his letter of resignation as the nation has collapsed.
