Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has mocked outgoing governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, over a claim that he would be Nigeria’s President someday.
Okorocha had during his valedictory thanksgiving service held at the Government House Chapel in Owerri on Sunday said, “I tell you, I am the most criticised person in Nigeria today. I don’t know why the entire elite hate me with cruelty… Mark it, I will be president of Nigeria. I said this on this altar so that the kingdom of God will rise against those fighting to stop me.”
But responding in a tweet on his official Twitter handle, Omokri made mockery of Okorocha, and said that he will only become the president of Nigeria Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
According to him, Okorocha as the founder of ‘iberiberism’, will be a good fit for the NURTW job.
“Rochas is NOT lying when he said “Mark my words, I will be president of Nigeria”. That prophecy is accurate. @RealRochas Okorocha will become President of Nigeria Union of Road Transport Workers. As the founder of #IBERIBERISM, he will be a good fit!”, Omokri wrote.
