Following Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde's outburst at the federal government concerning the state of affairs, the personal assistant to the president on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, has fired back. However, the actress is not sitting quiet.
Earlier on, Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde took to social media to speak up against the recent killings in the country and charged the president and his vice to do better. The personal assistant to the president on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, fired back, in not so nice words.
He wrote: "Madam Omotola those who are working for clean money are not complaining and will never refer our dear country as ‘hellish’. In Kano state alone, from 2015 to 2018, no fewer than 200 medium and small scale rice milling centres emerged. For that, billions circulated among millions."
Responding to his tweet, she wrote:"As long as you're not insinuating that I am not working clean for my money... I hear you. Its good that there are some progress... Do you truly want to say you dont see all that's really wrong? Can we fight for our future in truth for once? Without being partisan?"
It appears Bashir Ahmad wasn't going to let a criticism of the current government go down so easily. He once again responded insinuating this time, that Nigerians do not pay taxes.
"There are problems, and some have been with us since 1950s. Yes, I am partisan and I replied you because you mentioned @MBuhari and @ProfOsinbajo’s govt which I am working in. We as Nigerians, can you honestly say we are all acting like we have problems? Do we really pay taxes?"

Ikeji who is currently vacationing with her family in Paris fumed as she listed some of the problems rocking the Nigerian society.
Laura highlighted the fact that SARS/police officers are murdering citizens, hunger is in the land and people are afraid to function as members of the society because there is insecurity and poverty in the country.
