Former presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for his comment that the Inspector General of Police was adequately tackling insecurity in the country because he was losing weight.
Buhari made the comment upon his return from a 10-day London trip on Sunday and while fielding questions on if there would be a different approach to ensuring security in the country.
“I have just seen the IGP, he is losing weight so I think he is working hard,” the president said.
The comment has since drawn condemnation from different quarters, including from Sowore, who slammed the president for not taking security seriously enough.
Taking to social media, Sowore said, “I think the President has lost it.
“His reaction is at variance with the gravity of the insecurity in the country.”
