Osasu Igbinedion and some Nigerians on Twitter have been at loggerheads since on Tuesday over her Independence day Tweet.
Osasu, a media practitioner and daughter of former Edo state governor, Lucky Igbinedion, shared a tweet which many perceived to be a shade on the Buhari-led administration. Osasu who was in the US attending the UN General Assembly at the time she tweeted, wrote
My taxi driver from Columbia asked me “Is Nigeria a democratic nation”? I paused to think; are we? A nation where fundamental human rights such as free speech is trampled on, government critics arrested in gestapo manner & court orders disobeyed. Are we really? #NigeriaAt59”
All hell was let lose as some Nigerians as well as supporters of the present government, went hard on her, reminding her of how her father ”looted” Edo state when he was in office. According to those who reacted, her father’s action and inactions contributed immensely to the state Nigeria is currently in.
Well, Osasu did not take the bashing lying low as she took to her Twitter handle to remind those attacking her, particularly the supporters of this government who she referred to as paid e-rats, that she only deals with their bosses. See her tweet below.
Her critics have continued to bash her following her tweet. See the reactions below
