In a strong worded message on her Twitter page, the thespian described the state of Nigeria under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari and VP Yemi Osinbajo as ‘hellish’.
Omotola also lamented the mass killings of innocent citizens in Zamfara State and complained about a lack of cash in circulation which is making citizens face hard times.
“The Country Under your watch is Hellish! @YOsibanjo @MBuhari @NGRPresident The lack of Money in circulation, Now coupled with the Continuous Assault n Killings by Uniformed men will make this Country implode!!!It is Unbearable! Do something!Insecurity!Fear n Desperation everywhere,” Omotola wrote on her page.
