Reno Omokri, a former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of infecting the Super Eagles with what he termed ‘negative energies’ in the wake of the team’s exit from the African Cup of Nations competition.

Omokri made this assertion on Sunday, shortly after the Super Eagles suffered a lone goal defeat at the hands of Tunisia in the ongoing tournament in Cameroon.

The president had earlier called the team to motivate them ahead of the encounter.

However, Omokri, via a post on Twitter bemoaned that Buhari was the reason for the defeat suffered by the Super Eagles due to his “negative energies” spread by the phone call.

“Buhari is the reason Tunisia defeated Nigeria so disastrously

“Iwobi red card, Iheanacho yellow card. All the time they have been playing this never happened. Why is it that it is the day they spoke to Buhari that these series of unwelcome events rained on us.

“Energies are very contagious. Avoid negative people,” he said.
