Reno Omokri attacks Peter Obi again over negative news to use against Tinubu


Obi and Omokri

A former Presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri has attacked former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi for always looking for negative news to use against the government of President Bola Tinubu.

Omokri was reacting to Obi’s statement on the accidents in Kogi and Enugu States and blamed the government for everything.

Obi had earlier said he just confirmed two very gory road accidents in Kogi and Enugu states respectively that claimed the lives of 35 persons.

“The Kogi incident happened on Sunday along Okene/Lokoja bye where 19 persons were roasted alive while the other occurred along Nsukka/Enugu Road in Enugu state on Tuesday claiming the lives of sixteen persons. The Enugu State Police Command and Kogi State Federal Road Service Corps, FRSC have confirmed the two accidents.

“Even though the cause of the accidents is yet unknown, it must not be unconnected with the bad conditions of roads and insecurities. This is why I continue to shout out that our meager resources should be channeled at priority areas of fixing our internal roads to make them passable before going for super highway projects, which will take the chunk of the resources meant for these essential areas.

“My heart goes to the families of the deceased and the injured as I pray to God to give them the strength to bear the huge loss. My condolences also go to the governments and the people of Kogi and Enugu states,” Obi said.

Reacting to this, Omokri, in an X post wrote: “Does this fellow just browse the Internet looking for negative news about Nigeria to use against the government? Is this sadism or what?

“People died, and you feel that the best thing you can use their deaths for is to score political points? Just because of your desperation to be President in 2027?”

Omokri added: “You were Governor of Anambra State for eight years. Did people not die in road accidents under your watch in the state? Did your political opponents blame you for their deaths?

“So, every road accident in those states is the fault of the President? Peter, not all Governors are like you. You refused to build even a single school in your eight-year tenure. Some of your fellow Governors built good roads, when you were building breweries for drivers to get drunk and have more accidents!”
