Reno Omokri shades Amaechi on Twitter



Former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan on new media, Reno Omokri has taken a swipe at Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation Rotimi Amaechi who said he is not corrupt and does not like money.

Omokri accused Amaechi of deceiving Nigerians over his “I am not corrupt and do not like money” comments alleging that the Minister spent huge sums of money on clothes to attend functions while thinking that, “our foolishness is rechargeable.”

He posted pictures of Amaechi showing him wearing a multi-million Naira Louis Vuitton jacket and another picture of the minister wearing another expensive Gucci jacket to prove his claim.

Omokri wrote on Twitter; “Amaechi must think our foolishness is rechargeable! A man who wore a multi-million Gucci jacket to Paul Okoye’s wedding and an even more expensive Louis Vuitton jacket for Ruth Osime’s 50th birthday does not like money?”

“This was a man whose pocket full of dollars was mistakenly exposed during an interview he gave Sahara Reporters on October 2, 2013! How much did he spend on the monorail and did Rivers state get value for its money? In eight years Akpabio transformed Akwa-Ibom to a mini Dubai, what does Amaechi have to show for his eight years as governor?”

Omokri also claimed that Amaechi spent the sum of $500,000 on a dinner for Professor Wole Soyinka.
