A former presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri has lashed out at Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi over his comments on President Bola Tinubu, saying he is a pathetic desperado.
Omokri was reacting to Obi’s press conference in Abuja on Wednesday asking Tinubu to tell Nigerians his real name, schools he attended and the certificates he obtained.
Reacting to Obi’s news conference, Omokri in series of tweets said “Peter Obi is just a pathetic desperado. So, because of false allegations that President Bola Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University, the world now views Nigerians as fraudsters? Really?
“So, when President Obama faced false allegations of not being born in America, the world looked at all Americans as fraudsters? Bola Tinubu, a male, was admitted, attended and graduated from Chicago State University.
“I went there and verified it. It is true. Deal with it. You made a false allegation and want to blame the person you lied against? Your proven Pandora corruption did not give Nigeria a bad name, but this does? You will never be President of Nigeria, Peter Obi!”
According to Omokri, “My counsel to President Bola Tinubu is to ignore today’s rant from Peter Obi. Someone who meticulously obeys IPOB’s sit-at-home order has the audacity to pontificate about what embarrasses Nigeria? It is only in Nigeria that a man who was so ashamed of his university degree that he refused to tender it to the Independent National Electoral Commission will be foolhardy enough to cast aspersions on another man who was bold enough to declare his.”
He added that six months ago, Obi threatened to sue Peoples Gazette for publishing his leaked audio, where he promised to wage a religious war against the Muslim Ummah, saying he had still not sued.
Omokri said rather than hide his face in shame, he is now pointing fingers, saying that a man who could not come clean on a phone call he had expressing hatred for Muslims is now asking Tinubu to come clean.
“Peter Obi should first confess to making that call and admit to planning a religious war on the Muslim Ummah. The same Peter Obi went to Arewa House on Monday, October 17, 2022, and defended ESN, the armed wing of IPOB, while lying that it was the Governors of the Southeast who founded ESN, and so he could not condemn them, when in fact, ESN was established on December 13, 2020, by Nnamdi Kanu.
“Indeed, Nigeria dodged a bullet with Peter Obi. If he had won, Nigeria’s Muslims may have faced what Gaza’s population is currently facing,” he said.
“By the time the Supreme Court also rules that there is no evidence that Bola Tinubu forged his certificate, they will also say that the honourable justices have been bribed. They are incapable of accepting the truth that does not favour them,” he added.
