Popular Nigerian actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington has lashed out at presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie over her recent tweet.
The Personal assistant to the President on social media had taken to Twitter on Monday to encouraged people to wear face masks to protect themselves against COVID-19.
Onochie also accompanied the tweet with a photo of some shirtless little children wearing face masks made of cardboards.
“WEARING A MASK IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT.
ITS NOT PUNISHMENT BY GOVERNMENT
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”, she tweeted.
Reacting to this, Adesua expressed her displeasure over the photo and she tackled the presidential aide.
The actress 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”
