Popular Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington, has called out presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie over the posts she made on her Twitter handle on November 23.
Onochie had shared the photo below and called on Nigerians to ensure they wear face masks.
”WEARING A MASK IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT. ITS NOT PUNISHMENT BY GOVERNMENT PROTECT YOURSELF. Wear one. These have made efforts with masking where those of us who are more vulnerable & susceptible to COVID-19 are still swearing that it’s a scam. God bless their efforts
Adesua spotted the photo of the kids and was very angry. Reacting to Onochie’s post, Adesua wrote;
” You are a disgrace. Both home & abroad. You should be ashamed that these children have to do this with cardboards. Instead of talking about how to tackle poverty so they can be protected adequately against the virus, you’re spewing this nonsense.
This picture made me so angry and brought tears to my eyes. They are so small, so vulnerable and so unprotected. Arghhhhhh. THIS COUNTRY
I am finally accepting the fact that some human beings, really are dead on the inside. Didn’t understand how that could be even possible. I’m realising every day that it is.”
