Jeff Okoroafor wrote on twitter:
“The very colour of the Nigerian skin now means trouble for them in China, that’s nonsense and unacceptable.
“Nigerians will not take this new level of racial profiling & I am calling on you Buhari to immediately engage President Xi of China before this escalate beyond control.
“China’s claim is that Nigerians are bringing #Coronavirus to China…is this not madness? Is China not originator of the pandemic? Did it not start in Wuhan, China? So how is it that Nigerians are the ones bringing it to China?
“I just ended a call with a dear friend in #China. Things are very bad for Nigerians and other African nationals over there. They are being treated like criminals, slaves, over #COVID19. Women with children, forced to sleep on the street. Ogini?
“Instead of a home owner to arrest the thief the thief is now the one arresting the home owner – where is that done?
“Men, women, and children, forced to sleep on the street of China for weeks now and Buhari is silent, pretending not to know anything about it? Horrific!
“To worsen the situation, they are also collecting – seizing their international passports. Can the Nigerian government seize the international passport of any Chinese here in Nigeria?
“What’s this nonsense that Buhari is allowing to be our new normal?
“Do you think if there’s no order from above that the Chinese police will just swing into action, rounding up Nigerians, and putting them out of their homes and hotel rooms?
“The Consul-General of Nigeria in China has done something. Buhari what are you doing?
“While China is harassing and chasing Africans out of China, the French want Africans to be used as specimens (Guinea pigs) to try out the tuberculosis vaccine as a possible treatment for #COVID19.
“We are now everyone’s underdog. Very sad & deeply angry at these African leaders.
“Are you also aware that if you are a black person married to a Chinese, they’d separate you from your family? This is what’s going on in China right now. But what I don’t understand is why Buhari
and other African leaders are not mad about this development.
“While China is harassing and chasing Africans out of China, the French want Africans to be used as specimens (Guinea pigs) to try out the tuberculosis vaccine as a possible treatment for COVID19.
“We are now everyone’s underdog. Very sad & deeply angry at these African leaders.”
Nigeria is supposed to be the giant of Africa – taking charge, and providing quality leadership for other African countries to follow. But her leader, Buhari, is so weak and incompetent that his people are being rubbished in China. He wrote.
