After almost 50days in the UK, Nigerians expected more than a Sallah message in Hausa language from President Buhari.
The audio was supposed to quash rumours that President Buhari suffered speech impairment due to his prolong treatment in the United Kingdom.
The English translation of President Buhari’s message reads…
"I am immensely grateful to God for his mercy in guiding us successfully to conclude another Ramadan fast. My greetings to all Nigerian Muslims and our brother Christians on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr.
May the lessons of Ramadan namely; piety, self-denial, prayers and generosity to the poor and needy be with us for all time.
I, again, appeal to all Nigerians to avoid reckless statements or actions against our fellow countrymen. We should all resolve to live in peace and unity in our great country, which is the envy of many less endowed nations."
Nigerians are however not happy with the president’s Sallah message.
Here are the reactions to Buhari’s audio release on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the Northern Youth Leaders' Forum (NYLF) has made a short list of politicians to replace President Buhari for the 2019 presidential elections.
The list includes names of 12 prominent politicians from all over the north who could potentially replace the ill president.
