Ace comedian, Ali Baba says supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari are on the same path taken by those who messed up Goodluck Jonathan.
While reacting to the prosecution of a 30-year-old trader, Joe Fortemose Chinakwe, who made major headline throughout last week after being arrested by the Police in Ogun State, and spent 3-days in detention for naming his pet dog 'Buhari', legendary comedian, Ali Baba, has said that supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari are on the same path taken by those who messed up former president, Goodluck Jonathan, and called on the Buhari to intervene in the man's case.
We earlier reported it that the suspect was on Monday, arraigned for breach of the peace, before a magistrate court in Sango Ota, Ogun state, as the court said his offence was writing “Buhari” on his dog and parading the animal around the Hausa section of Ketere market.
Although he was granted N50,000 bail, the trader still remains in prison and Ali Baba has taken to his Instagram page and advised President Buhari to act on the matter.
Below is what he wrote;
"President Mohammadu Buhari is a respected man. He is a sitting president. Nothing should be done to discredit him. Just as nothing should be done to rubbish his name.
"But to all his dogged supporters who are screaming blue mother because of the dog issue, hear this, THIS IS THE SAME PATH THAT PEOPLE WHO MESSED UP JONATHAN'S PRESIDENCY TOOK.
"You can not tell me that in the over weeks or so that this issue of name dog or not name dog started, the people who work with or work for PMB have not brought it to his notice.
"Is that what is bothering this country? How many Fulani herdsmen who have killed several Nigerians have been swiftly brought to justice like this dog naming guy? We just have a bunch of senseless and jobless people swallowing panadol for another person's headache masquerading as patriots.
"Let me just say this one time here and I will not comment on this again. Mr President should cal the IGP and attorney General to order. There are more pressing issues than the name of a dog taking over the times of our courts and heating up the polity.
"Awon Alai ni nkon se oshi."
