Reno Omokri, a former presidential advisor to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has urged Ohanaeze Ndigbo, the largest Igbo socio-cultural group, against depending on President Muhammadu Buhari’s commitment to safeguard the area.
According to NEWS DIRECT, President Buhari stated on Thursday during a visit to Imo State that his administration would address the region’s security crisis.
In response to the promise, Omokri said that the president lacks the competence to provide security in any part of the country in a post on his verified Facebook page.
Buhari, he claims, has failed to defend the country, particularly his home state of Katsina.
The post reads, “Last week, Masari, the Governor of Buhari’s home state of Katsina, was lamenting on Channel Television that bandits have taken over his state and markets and schools are closed.
“In Zamfara, in Buhari’s Northwest region, telecommunications services have been shut down completely due to bandits. The NW is currently worse than Afghanistan.
“Yet, Buhari went to Imo yesterday to promise Ndi’Igbo security, and Ohana’eze celebrated. No be juju be that? Can Buhari give to the Igbos what he can’t give to his own state and region? Look at the trouser he wore.
“Is a man who wore that type of trouser competent to give you security, stability and development? Ohana’eze should not clutch at straws. If they rely on Buhari’s promises, they will all die one by one!”
