- Lambastes Buhari for not allegedly not helping in the evacuations of Nigerians in South Africa.
- Slams the judiciary over the tribunal ruling on the presidential poll.
Reno Omokri, a former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari about the steps taken so far to repatriates Nigerians under attack in South Africa.
Omokri who is a stauch critic of the ruling government stated via his Twiter page that in spite of multiple chartered flights, paid by the Nigerian government, leave Nigeria on a daily basis to airlift pilgrims to S Arabia, the president could not divert just 1 to SA to airlift stranded Nigerians back home.
It could be recalled that Nigerian Airline, Air Peace voluntarily came out to help evacuate Nigerians willing to return home in partnership with the federal government.
“Multiple chartered flights, paid by the Nigerian government, leave Nigeria on a daily basis to airlift pilgrims to S Arabia. Yet, General @MBuhari could not divert just 1 to SA to airlift stranded Nigerians back home. It had to be done by a private airline-AIr Peace!,” he tweeted.
He further stated that the duty of government is clearly stated in the Nigerian Constitution government which is the protection of all Nigerians but the protections the citizens needed in South African was provided by a private firm through Air Peace.
iDONSABI reports that 187 Nigerians returned yesterday and the federal government has assured them of support needed to settle back into the country.
He also lambasted Vice President Yemi Osinbajo for not helping the citizens in coming back into the country alleging that during elections, when he needed the electorates, he shared 10,000 Naira through that Social Investment Programme.
“Now that Nigerians in South Africa need you, you are nowhere to be found. It took a private individual to send his own plane to SA to repatriate Nigerians. God is watching!
“General @MBuhari budgeted BILLIONS for RUGA. His govt proposed BILLIONS to IMPORT GRASS from BRAZIL. Yet, General Buhari could not pay for a plane to evacuate Nigerians from South Africa! It was a private citizen, Allen Onyema, CEO of @FlyAirPeace, who sent a plane,” he added.
Reacting to the Tribunal ruling that reaffirmed the election of President Buhari in the February 23 Presidential poll, he lambasted the judiciary for ruling against the suit of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar contesting the eligibility of the president to contest without ‘O’ level result.
“I remind the judiciary and Nigerians that General @MBuhari hired Wole Olanipekun, SAN, because he is EDUCATED. Even General Buhari knows that neither he nor Nigeria can win in court, in life, or in government, without having an EDUCATED man in charge! “
