Lauretta Onochie, the Special Assistant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari has said that she’s upset because CNN thinks Nigerians are so stupid to believe their lies.
Recall that the CNN yesterday aired an investigative report analysing the scenes of the Lekki Toll Gate Shooting. Reacting to the report Onochie has said that she’s proudly Nigerian and will not be bullied into believing such lies.
She disclosed this via her Twitter page on Thursday, November 19. I’m the tweet she attached a video of the Nigerian flag with the inscription ‘proudly Nigerian’.
“I’m not upset that CNN lied to the world about my nation, Nigeria. I’m upset that they think we are so stupid that we will swallow their lies. We won’t be bullied into believing a lie! #WeAreNigerians #WeAreProudNigerians”
Nigerians have responded to this tweet, most of which have said that they aren’t part of the ‘we’ in her tweet.
