When it comes to football and politics, all Nigerians are pundits. And in this democratic dispensation, the freedom of speech right has become a sort of recreation. Moreover, in the wake of the DSS' sting operation on some judges there have been more 'open season' on the government with President Buhari being the prime target. Yoruba actress of Ibadan origin, who contested and lost Oyo State House of Assembly election under the umbrella of PDP also took aim at the President, albeit, with some unexpected consequences.

“ According to history, what we are experiencing today is a replica of what the nation went through in General Buhari's first coming in the early 80s.The last few months of his second coming has brought sheer lawlessness and gross misapplication of power, in addition to the mismanagement of our economy which has left the society worse off.

He has shown us that he is far from being a Nigerian but a Northerner in every sense of the word. He has orchestrated his well planned Northern agenda and maligned the South almost to a state of voicelessness…,” this is an extract of the long narrative the actress posted on her Instagram page on Monday. She got over two thousand likes for the effort, she described as “ patriotism as against partisanship” with as many comments deriding her for her views One Oluwanifemmy10, writes, “A lot of young people out there are looking at you as a role model. The views you have expressed here look too myopic my dear. Someone just accused you of being a beneficiary of corruption under the PDP”

Gossipnigeria has this to say, “ Aunty Funke, These are heavy claims, enough to get you an invitation by the DSS. Do you have proof that he is acting out a Northern agenda.”

Yemmylik states, “ Most of your points don't really hold water and as a good student of history as you call it, what can you say about the just past regime. Was Nigeria a producing nation? And how much was crude oil then and now? What happened to the nation's treasury. Buhari is not Nigeria's problem.”

Ssaaddekky just dismissed her saying, “I condemn this write-up, total rubbish.”
