A photo of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari posted on Twitter has elicited reactions from supporters and opponents alike.
Buhari is shown seated in a sofa at his official residence in the capital Abuja. He is using a toothpick ostensibly after a meal.
The third component of his three-piece traditional outfit has been hanged close-by.
The glass windows behind show that the president is watching himself on television.
One of the first persons to post it on Twitter captioned it “Twitter street: #RevolutionIsNow.
Insinuating that the president remained at ease at a time protesters were clashing with security forces in the commercial capital, Lagos.
The post was taking a dig at the banned revolution protests that ended with security forces firing tear gas to disperse protesters in the commercial capital, Lagos.

Truth is, Buhari has paid his due to this nation FULLY from his 20s, fought the war, faced the bullets, restored territories back to Nigeria, defended the sovereignty of Nigeria at the risk of his life with others.
