Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has mocked the governing All Progressives Congress (APC) over claims that Atiku Abubakar, is exhibiting acts of felony against a ‘sitting’ President, Muhammadu Buhari.
The allegation was levelled against Atiku, a former Vice President and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate in the last election by the APC on Tuesday.
But in his response in a post on his verified Twitter account on Wednesday, Omokri said APC was right to have described Buhari as a sitting President because he supposedly “sits doing nothing while Nigeria became world headquarters of poorest people.
He said, ” The APCNg dont know how right they were when they called General @MBuhari a”sitting President” in their warning to
@Atiku. A President who sits doing nothing while his nation becomes the world headquarters for EXTREME POVERTY under him is truly a #SittingPresidentBuhari.”
In another tweet, Omokri described as a pity, the Presidency claim on Tuesday that Boko Haram has been defeated.
He wrote, “Sad that just four days after Boko Haram killed 65 people at a burial in Borno, and three days after they attacked Baga and killed an unknown number of Nigerians, General @MBuhari released a statement claiming that he has ‘defeated Boko Haram’. What a pity!”
