Lauretta Onochie: Don’t Extend Your “Hatred” For Buhari To Nigeria

Senior Special Assistant on Social Media to President Buhari, Lauretta Onochie, has admonished Nigerians to show patriotism to the Country and her institutions despite their disposition towards her Principal, Muhammadu Buhari.

Whilst she concedes that some might hate the President or legislators, she urged Nigerians to refrain from extending such “hate” to the Nation and her institutions.

Recently, Onochie’s nomination as a National Commissioner representing South-South at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was greeted with a sense of nationwide outrage by many who see it as a provocative assault on the 1999 Constitution (as amended).

1. If you choose to hate our President & Legislators, its ok

But that hated must not be extended to Nigeria and her institutions

While Pres Trump is denigrating America’s electoral system, Americans are fiercely defending the integrity of their electoral body
Thats patriotism

2. Nigeria is exactly what her people are. Our institutions are exactly what we are.

Reforms are on-going in the Executive, legislature, Judiciary, Army, Police, Customs, INEC, EFCC, ICPC, etc.

We must stand by our institutions as they make progress towards serving us better.
