Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari has suffered criticisms from Nigerians on several occasions for what they termed his indifference to the plight of ordinary citizens.
In recent times, there have been complains by a lot of people on the spate of killings in the country perpetuated by Boko Haram insurgents and Fulani militants. Also not left out, are the excesses of some members of the Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS. In which many have claimed to be brutalised and victimized for no reason by these police officers.
However, on a lot of occasions, it always seemed like the president was silent on these issues. As nothing seems to be done, to comfort the people.
Some Nigerians on social media, have therefore criticised the speed at which president Buhari responded to the mass defection in his party, the All Progressive Congress, APC.
They stated that his response within hours was a clear pointer to what the priorities of the President are.
See reactions below
Nigerian troops were recently killed by Boko Haram. Yesterday, photos of their mass burial surfaced. They paid the ultimate price for Nigeria. Not a word appreciating them or consoling their families from President Buhari. Yet in 1 hour Buhari responded to defecting APC Senators!

Don't tell me President Muhammadu Buhari @MBuhari is not aware of what's happening in his government and cabinet and the Nation at large. The ones that personally affect him he responds to within 12 hours. It's the ones that affect the people he can't be bothered with

If it's okay to hire a foreigner as Super Eagles head coach, can we sign a foreigner to be our President for a while?
Saraki, Kwankwaso, Buhari, Atiku… all of them are Yahoo Boys!

President Muhammadu Buhari is not a slow reader, his reaction to the massive defection of his party members to PDP is the fastest response so far compared to other national issues ranging from killings to security forces brutality.
Why does he slow down on key national issues?
