It’s fine to despise me but not the nation – Bashir Ahmad

Bashir Ahmad, a presidential aide, has reacted to being dragged online for tweeting about President Muhammadu Buhari’s schedule immediately after a train was attacked on the Abuja-Kaduna rail line.

While it’s fine for him and the administration he works for to be detested, it shouldn’t diminish people’s love for the nation, according to Bashir.

He stated that Nigeria would always be with us, despite the fact that he and the present government were not there eight years ago.

According to the presidential aide,

To dislike me or the government I work for is a freedom of choice, which I understand and respect, but please don’t let the dislike affects the love your have for this country. 8 years ago we weren’t here, and a year + months we won’t be around, but Nigeria stays with us forever.
