Nollywood actress Uche Jombo has reacted to President Buhari’s address to the nation on coronavirus.
In a portion of the 23 seconds video that was posted by Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant on New Media, on Sunday, the president had a little problem pronouncing the virus and this got people talking online.
“We are working with [Federal] Ministry of Health (@FMoHNigeria) on protecting our citizens from #COVIDー19, as a government, this is now a key priority for us”. – President @MBuhari on #coronavirus pandemic. #COVID19Nigeria pic.twitter.com/5keAD7Wgv4

However, Jombo in a post shared on her Twitter page strongly noted that the media team of the president should be replaced over their failure to correct him.
“The whole of president Buhari’s social media team needs to be replaced over COVIK ONE NINE video for not correcting him, watched it and shared it Face with rolling eyes now even ghana people on my TL are having fun with it. I hope the “baba must speak to us” WhatsApp group people are happy,” she tweeted.
However, Uche Jombo’s post generated mixed reactions from her followers on the social media platform.
