‘You are a disgrace’, Adesua Etomi-Wellington knocks Lauretta Onochie
Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi-Wellington has reacted to a picture of children wearing a makeshift mask made with cardboards, which was shared by presidential aide, Lauretta Onochie on Tuesday, November 24.
Onochie shared the photo on her Twitter handle as she called on Nigerians to ensure they wear facemasks.
The caption of her picture read: ”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.”
On seeing the photo, Adesua got angry and chided Onochie for sharing such a picture, instead of talking about how to tackle poverty so the children can be protected adequately against the virus.
She 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.”
