Reno Omokri Pokes Jibes From Zambia At Buhari On Projects Commissioning

Two projects being commissioned, different epochs.

As Social media advisor to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr. Reno Omokri meticulously kept records and pictures of Jonathan’s days in office and even out of office. Out of country, he continually keeps faith with his principal by releasing facts and figures to counter whatever propaganda or misleading information released by the current government to tarnish or diminish the work of the government that he served.

He wrote this recently: “Compare what Goodluck Jonathan commissioned during his time to what Muhammadu Buhari is commissioning during his own time then let your conscience judge who is really clueless.

Reno Omokri”.

Obviously Omokri is still riled by the unfair name tag the then opposition media hung on Jonathan by calling him “clueless” and the social media guru would not let the matter rest especially since the then opposition during the Jonathan years are today, the ruling party.

Reno Omokri is based principally outside of the country where he was before Goodluck Jonathan brought him back to work in Nigeria. He was seen at the weekend flying a chopper across the Victoria Falls, the seventh wonder of the world in Zimbabwe into Zambia all in southern Africa probably on holidays and eating the delicacies of the region which includes crocodile meat.

He’s lucky that this is the age of democracy and multimedia which includes the vast social media that government cannot control no matter how much it tries. Ordinarily the Buhari of the 80s as military strongman resented the media and hated jibes and criticisms.
Alhaji Umaru Dikko, Nigeria’s former Transport Minister and Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Rice under President Shehu Shagari (1979-1983) was kidnapped in London by suspected agents of the military government that overthrew the Shagari administration which was led by Major General Muhammadu Buhari. The kidnap attempt was foiled by vigilant security forces in London before Umaru Dikko could be put in a crate and returned to Lagos for trial by the new government. It was the first reported case of kidnapping in Nigeria since 1970 after the civil war in Nigeria between the breakaway region of Biafra and corporate Nigeria.
