In a time like this, the President's PA actions are troubling

Lauretta Onochie should conduct herself in a manner befitting of someone in the Presidency.

Lauretta Onochie

Onochie who should be in Aso Rock composing tweets and Facebook posts for the Buhari-led government seems to have given herself a new job description.

The Personal Assistant to the President has been very vocal in her attack against the protest which was originally spearheaded by 2face Idibia. Her partisan opinions and lack of objectivity are troubling for someone so close to the top tier of the government.

When 2face Idibia announced that he was no longer part of the protest, she said the singer had "done the right thing" and labelled the rally as a PDP protest. Shouldn't someone who works with the President be neutral in a time like this.

Lauretta Onochie, during the debate if 2face Idibia should lead a protest was one of the leading figures who attacked the singer and the protest online. Her statements are divisive and do not reflect her position in this administration.

During an interview with Channels TV on Sunday, January 5, 2017 she said that Nigeria is not the only country going through a recession. That's an insensitive statement at this period. Her statement is eerily similar to Goodluck Jonathan's statement that terrorism is a worldwide phenomenon and it is Nigeria's turn. If her statement is to be taken seriously, then unfortunately this administration has lost touch with the people it claims to serve.

Let's forget how divisive and partisan some of her utterances are. Her Twitter bio is more troubling. "Passionate About Good Governance And "  is clearly written on her Twitter bio.

One of the main focus of the Buhari administration is to tackle corruption. I am not sure President Buhari wants to settle with bringing corruption to a manageable level in Nigeria.

If Lauretta Onochie is indicative of the people in Aso Rock, then we as Nigerians have a few things to think about. It is high time that people in the Presidency act ans speak responsibly.
