Daughter of the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, Zahra Indimi is so not happy about Nigerians Cyberbullying her for her dad’s actions.
According to her, it is not right that Nigerians will hold her accountable for her dad’s decision — something she grants no opinions on.
Nevertheless, Zahra noted that she doesn’t care about cyberbullying anymore because she’s noticed people do it out of envy because they’re not in her position.
During her first show, ‘An Afternoon with Zahra’ an event which according to report cost N10,000 per person,
Zahra who’s gotten quite enough of horrible experiences with Nigerians on Cyberbullying said;
‘2015 was when I knew what bullying was. It started with my photos going viral. I was actually having a yoga class and I was sweating but people were busy sending my pictures up and down. People used it for their gain during the campaign.
‘But the issue changed the way people looked at my dad because they didn’t know that we were educated, we could speak English, and we could dress. So it changed a few things for good. It showed another light. People then understood that in the North not everybody is illiterate.
‘The 2015 elections went well. After 100 days, then the blow started coming. ‘Zahra your father did this… Zahra your father did that. But seriously, am I in office with him? Do I take any vital decision?
‘Did you understand why some decisions are being taken? When I post my picture, it is my picture. It is not your child’s picture. I kept wondering why people do this to me constantly.” She asked victims of cyber bullying not to be intimidated by hateful persons, adding that many unfavourable comments were made out of envy.
‘I know we have people who are victims here. So to be honest, if you are a victim you need to feel sorry for those people; they want to be where you are and they are not there. So they will try to pull you down. Would you let them pull you down? No. You need to know that you have the values that someone also wants.‘
