Buhari’s aide flops, says America is birthplace of democracy
Nigerians have berated Ahmed Bashir, the New media aide to president Mohammadu Buhari over a statement published on Twitter late Wednesday.
Bashir had tweeted painting the current electoral situation of America as a replica of Nigeria’s electoral challenges.
Earlier on Wednesday, aggrieved Republicans besieged US Capitol during a session of the congress aimed to confirm supposed Joe Biden’s presidential victory.
The demonstrators believed to be Donald Trump’s supporters disrupted the joint session, chanting, displaying placards indicating ‘election was rigged’.
Though, the heated rally was arrested when President Trump addressed the mammoth crowd, told them to “go home.
In his words: “I know your pain,” Trump said in a one-minute video on Twitter. “We had an election that was stolen from us.
“But you have to go home now,” he said. “We have to have peace. We have to have law and order.”
In his reaction, Bashir said “And, it happened in the birthplace of democracy, the mighty United States of America”
However, part of the statement has stirred anger amongst Nigerians, querying the educational background of the New Aide to occupy such office without primary knowledge of where democracy was birthed.
Wikipedia, the global free encyclopedia position stipulates that the birthplace of democracy is traced to Athens, a member of the aristocratic Alcmaeonid clan, and an ancient Athenian lawgiver named Cleisthenes in 508 BC.
