President Buhari was on the receiving end of the fury of Nigerians after he congratulated the national female basketball team for winning the African championship.
The president tweeted:
“Congratulations to D’Tigress on the 2017 FIBA women’s AfroBasket tournament win, & qualifying for the 2018 FIBA women’s Basketball world cup”
This, however, generated a range of reactions from Nigerians. . .

You are congratulating them now but their coming back home to Nigeria will be a war and protest before they can receive their salary.
If you like congratulate them, you are stepping down after this tenure.
If everyone would had failed like you do, the world ‘congratulations’ would had not existed or would had been balkanized.
Act fast. . . Nation is hungry.
See the way you are telling them congratulation and it sweet in your mouth. My question is, when are we going to tell you congratulation?

Mr. President, we hope they will be adequately rewarded for their performance.
Congratulations! Mr. President. . . Please do something about ASUU strike. . . students should not be left unattended to.
