Stand-up comedian, Ali Baba, has made his thoughts known concerning the recent pet naming drama where a man was arrested for naming his dog Buhari.
Ali Baba however feels that the incident was given undue attention.
He appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to put his house in order, specifically calling on him to advise the likes of the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney General of the Federation to focus on their responsibilities.
According to the comedian, the country is facing quite a number of challenges, and as such feels energy should be invested on tackling them.
He expressed these in a recent Instagram post, Daily Postreports.
“President Muhammadu Buhari is a respected man. He is a sitting president. Nothing should be done to discredit him, just as nothing should be done to rubbish his name.”
“But to all his dogged supporters who are screaming blue mother because of the dog issue, hear this, THIS IS THE SAME PATH THAT PEOPLE WHO MESSED UP JONATHAN’S PRESIDENCY TOOK.”
“You cannot tell me that in the past weeks or so that this issue of name dog or not name dog started, the people who work with or work for PMB have not brought it to his notice?”
He lamented about the situation with the Fulani Herdsmen, who have gone a rampage across the country, killing innocent people and taking over their lands.
As far as he is concerned, more should be done to overcome this challenge, as opposed to the focus on issues that do not bring peace.
“Is that what is bothering this country? How many Fulani herdsmen who have killed several Nigerians have been swiftly brought to justice like this dog naming guy?
“We just have a bunch of senseless and jobless people swallowing panadol for another person’s headache, masquerading as patriots.
“Let me just say this one time here and I will not comment on this again. Mr. President should call the IGP and Attorney General to order.
“There are more pressing issues than the name of a dog taking over the times of our courts and heating up the polity.
“Awon Alai ni nkon se oshi (People who are not ready to do anything)”, he said.
