Omosexy, as she is also known got folks on twitter talking as Nigerians reacted swiftly to her post.
The situation was even more fired up when a Special Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmed gave his reaction to the actress’ remark.
“Madam Omotola those who are working for CLEAN money are not complaining and will never refer our dear country as ‘hellish’. In Kano State alone, from 2015 to 2018, no fewer than 200 medium and small scale rice milling centres emerged. For that, billions circulated among millions,” Ahmad wrote.

See the reaction of Nigerians on the issue.
“Are you making clean money?” “Are you paying your taxes?” Next reply from Bashir to Omotola will be to ask if she isn’t a pipeline vandal or a kidnapper?

If Nigeria is as heavenly as some of the reactions to Omotola’s tweet suggest, who are the people running to Canada? Why is everyone, from office holders to anyone who can save up for a ticket working to have an American child? Can we at least even face our truths?

Plateau, Borno, Benue, Zamfara, Nassarawa, Kaduna – deaths of thousands litter the streets due to govt incompetence. Yet you place rice milling on the same pedestal as HUMAN LIVES & insecurity that Omotola called out. You are shame,a monumental disgrace to the living& those dead. https://t.co/WGocPzfkDN

As soon as I saw Omotola’s tweet, I knew she had made a mistake with that ‘lack of money in circulation’ line. Buharideens are one-way automatons and you have to insure your tweets against their stupidity https://t.co/rpBUCpGGna
