President Buhari Loses Fame In Maiduguri As Residents Boo Him On Arrival

Residents of Maiduguri on Wednesday filed on the streets to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari but this time with a different song.

Instead of the usual Sai Baba!, and hailing he enjoys in the city, the song changed to Bama so! Bama so! Meaning we don't want, we don't like.

The actions of his supporters who filed right from the airport road down to post office to the Sheu's palace protesting against the President over his inability to tackle the insecurity in the State.

Some of the disgruntled residents include even school children who had closed from school at the time the President arrived Maiduguri.

This is the first time President Buhari has received this kind of treatment from Borno State which is one of his strong political base.

President Buhari enjoys a cult popularity in Borno state having served as a military administrator before becoming president in 2015.

Some of the residents said they would have pelted the President if he was not driving together with their amiable governor.

There has also been wide condemnation of the President on the social media in Borno state since the Auno attack.
