Nigerian singer/songwriter, television presenter, publisher, producer and one of Nigeria’s most controversial entertainers Charly Boy, born Charles Chukwuemeka Oputa has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari for boasting over his 800 meters walk from Daura Mosque to his private home on Tuesday.
Best known for his alternative lifestyle, political views and media productions Charly Boy said his father walks a mile a day when he was 97 years old.
President Buhari had after prayers and slaughtering of ram on Tuesday, decided to walk home from the mosque, reassuring Nigerians that he is strong enough for 2019.
The report has since generated a lot of controversies and comments from Nigerian politicians, mostly from those in the opposition.
In his reaction, Charlyboy said Buhari was a failure no matter the distance he walked.
He stated that a President should instead be praised for creating jobs and eradicating poverty.
In a post on his Twitter page, Charly Boy wrote;
“If Buhari like make he trek from Abuja reach Jericho, who he help? Na confirm failure. Em health, em presidency, suffering Nigerians.
“Before my papa died at 97, he dey trek at least 1mile a day. Sai Baba go rest, no dey drag with your children dem. Is not by force Abegi.
“Oga president is not being praised for creating jobs or getting suffering Nigerians out of poverty. He is being praised for trekking two poles.”
