He stated that he hadn’t observed any display of empathy from the president and suggested that Tinubu seemed unaware of the country’s current situation.

Rhodes-Vivour compared this to criticisms faced by former President Goodluck Jonathan during the Chibok girls’ kidnapping, where opponents campaigned against Jonathan’s government while dancing on stage.

He questioned Tinubu’s actions regarding rising insecurity and criticized what he perceived as a performative approach to governance, referencing instances where the president and his associates were seen in Abuja dressed in uniform and dancing.

In his words: “I’ve not seen any sign of empathy from the president. He doesn’t even seem to be aware of what is going on in the country. And this was what they used against former President Goodluck Jonathan when the Chibok Secondary School girls were kidnapped.

“They were going about campaigning against Jonathan’s government and dancing on stage. What is Tinubu doing today about the rising insecurity in the country? The primary responsibility of any government is the protection of life and property of the people. The other time a lot of people were kidnapped and we saw the president and his people in Abuja dressed in asoebi (uniform) and dancing. They had all the time to sew asoebi? You can see that we have a performative government.”CONTINUE FULL READING>>>>>
