Buhari’s Visit to Wounded Soldiers Causes Ripples on Social Media

President Buhari’s visit to wounded soldiers is being greeted with mix-reactions on Social Media.
The images of the President visit to the wounded soldiers and that of his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan when he visited wounded soldiers in 2015 surfaced online.
Some analysts said Buhari’s visit may have not drawn wide-spread praise for his show of commitment to curb insurgency but it showned a clear departure from the past where the nation’s leader hardly paid visits to victims of natural disasters or victims of Boko Haram’s onslaught.
They argued that the Former President, Goodluck Jonathan “only visited the North-East State twice (2013 and 2015) after much condemnation.
It was also said that the visit also afforded the President the on-the-spot accessment of the true situation in the war-torn territory
However, others interpreted Buhari’s picture as that of one with fake motives and an unsympathetic posture.
According to Reno Omokri, an aide to the former President, Jonathan felt the pain of the soldiers by going close to touch and feel their pains but Buhari only waved at them like a ‘a star’.

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday visited wounded soldiers fighting Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
The visit, as observed by some security experts was meant to be a morale booster for troops battling insurgents in the North-East.
The President did not only cancel his planned visit to his home town for his ‘casual’ leave, he also abandoned his State visit to Edo State where he was expected to commission the Edo-Azura power plant.
