The Economist cannot call any Western Leader Buffoon… Nigerians react as The Economist’s calls GEJ an Ineffectual Buffoon

Just recently an article published by UK publication, The Economist calling Immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan an “ineffectual buffoon” for allowing impunity to reign during his tenure as president, the article was so loaded that it did not spare current president, President Buhari saying he is making an already bad situation in the country, worse. 😬

Nigerians on Twitter had a strong reaction to the article’s harsh words

Read the tweets after this text:

The article made Twitter Nigeria come up in arms against the publication.

Lol. The context of the Economist’s description is very accurate. Unfortunately, the choice of words lacked tact.

PMB is using weapons I bought to fight boko haram – GEJ….. Weapons you bought? With your money? The Economist wasn’t wrong at all.

The Economist went Hard “Goodluck Jonathan, an ineffectual buffoon who let politicians and their cronies fill their pockets with impunity.”

The writer under the Economist had no tact or right and his bias showed like a ballet dancing deer in headlights. Ok. Sorry. Let’s move on.

So. The Economist, The Times, The Post? Love their work. But they can shove their opinions about Africa up dark crevices. Tenks a bunsh.

The Economist crossed the line. But do i blame them? No. “When u hurl insults @ ur own, u’ll never b in short supply of those who’ll join u”

I don’t think it’s the Economist’s place to insult our past president. We can insult him on our own

The Economist has lost credibility with their disingenuous lazy reporting about Nigeria. But this isn’t the first time

Irrespective of what he has done in d past, the economist has no right to call a past president of a nation names.

The @economist writer who described Jonathan as an “ineffectual buffoon” is probably a British upper class twat in his/her early twenties.

The Economist calls GEJ a “buffoon”. Big deal. That supercilious medium often hides its ignorance of local realities behind sweeping insults
