A former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri has reacted to the speech delivered by President Muhammadu Buhari on the efforts and measures put in place to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Omokri who now describes himself as a ‘Buhari tormentor’ in a post on Twitter, said that the president’s nationwide broadcast was dishonest, disjointed, and symptomatic of the incompetence and cluelessness of a man who wants to feed school children in this period of coronavirus pandemic.
Reacting further to Buhari’s nationwide broadcast, Omokri in the series of posts on Twitter shared on Sunday night said that President Buhari just told Nigerians lies as there was no conviction in his voice.
Omokri tweeted: “Before General @MBuhari’s broadcast, Nigerians suspected they were on their own. After the ‘live broadcast,’ Nigerians were sure they were on their own. He just read the lies they gave him. No conviction in his voice. What a toy President!
“Finally, if I have to describe General @MBuhari’s broadcast, I would say it was dishonest, disjointed, and symptomatic of the incompetence and cluelessness of a man who wants to feed school children while there are no children in schools. #BuhariCoronaAddress #BuhariTormentor.”
