Ex-President Jonathan’s Former Aide Retires From Politics



Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president to Goodluck Jonathan has retired from Nigerian politics and criticising the President Muhammadu Buhari government.

Naijaparry understands that Omokri is one of the staunch critics of the Buhari government and once described himself on his Twitter bio as “Buhari Tormentor.”

However, following the declaration of results for the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections which held last weekend, Omokri has said he is washing his hands off Nigerian politics.

In a series of tweets on his official handle, Monday, Omokri claimed that Nigerians do not appreciate those fighting for the betterment of the country.

According to him, Nigerians deserve the kind of leadership they get from those in government.

“Some say I am not speaking on Kogi elections. I‘ve tried. I sponsored buses for democracy to ferry Nigerians to vote. I fed them, I have talked and done,” he tweeted.

“It‘s now time for me to accept that Nigerians deserve the government they have. Let me focus on evangelism.

“Do you now see why I have given up? I‘m one of the few who went into government without stealing, yet the same Nigerians I am fighting for will accuse me of stealing.”

Omokri added that: “The same Nigerians accuse me of making money from Free Leah Saribu. Now, the latest one: I’m being paid by Apple.

“I once thought General Buhari and APC were Nigeria’s problem. In deciding to wash my hands off Nigerian politics, I concluded that we ourselves are the problem.

“Christ already died for Nigerians, I would not join him to die, I will follow Him and live!

“If Nigerians are grateful people, many people will be willing to die for Nigeria but suppose Femi Fani-Kayode and I are arrested today, who will put their property and money at risk to bail us out the way both of us have put our lives and liberty at risk for Nigeria?

“Fourth and final- Nnamdi Kanu fought for Biafra, and Biafrans appreciate him. If you fight for Nigeria, will Nigerians appreciate you?

“Ask GEJ, Dino Melaye and Shehu Sani. General Buhari, Yahaya Bello and El-rufai are looking at them and me and laughing. Would you blame them?”
