The screen diva’s post generated mixed reactions from her followers on the social media platform.
“90% of the President's aides are unintelligent people and I say this with all sense of responsibility. The aides of my local government chairman would have corrected that goof,” a follower tweeted in support of the actress.
Another follower said: “It's apparently clear that he was forced to read that statement. Very cold and emotionless. I read volumes from the words he didn't say and the body language. Nigeria, brace yourself.”
