Reno Omokiri – Buhari Just Wasted Our Time During His Speech
Reno Omokiri , the aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s Nation speech and live telecast to Nigerians on Monday as a waste of time.
Speaking via his Twitter handle, Omokri said the broadcast was uninspiring and failed to touch on the real issues bedeviling Nigerians.
The social commentator berated the president for not addressing the breakdown of law and order in Lagos and other states as crime rates and robbery have increased.
He also wondered why Buhari could not take questions from journalists and shed more light on palliative measures to Nigerians as is the case in other climes.
Naija News recalls that Reno’s reactions comes a day after Buhari, in a nationwide broadcast, announced extension of lockdown in Abuja, Lagos and Ogun States as a means of combating the coronavirus pandemic.
Here is reno’s series tweets below about President Buhari’s live Broadcast
Gen @MBuhari gave this broadcast just to sadistically extend the lockdown in SW without providing food or security for Lagosians who are facing starvation. Every other thing was just added to pad the budget. After all, his government is an expert in budget padding #BuhariVirus
1-General @MBuhari’s broadcast was shallow. He told us nothing new. He did not tell us what specifically he has done, is doing and will do to ease life for Nigerians during this #CoronaVirus lockdown. It was a national waste of 20 minutes we could have spent better #BuhariVirus
2-General @MBuhari boasted about what he should have been ashamed of. In a country of 200 million citizens, how can you boast of training 7,000 health workers. Was he not ashamed? This is what a local government chairman should be boasting about, not a President #BuhariVirus
3-In fact, General @MBuhari said worse than nothing. This was not news. It was noise. He says we are on the right track to defeat #COVID19 (thank God he could pronounce it). How? We are not testing. We dont know who has it. We don’t know who died due to #CoronaVirus#BuhariVirus
4-General @MBuhari boasted that his government has traced 92% of identified contacts of #CoronaVurus patients. This is blatantly false. For instance, have they traced and identified the contacts of all those who attended AMMA awards? What about the Katsina doctor?#BuhariVirus
5-General @MBuhari did not address the breakdown of law and order in parts of Lagos and Ogun. People can’t sleep at homes. They are now vigilantes in their communities. Not one word. Not one word. It is as if their sufferings don’t exist. Very insensitive!#BuhariVirus
7-.@BorisJohnson, who was just released from hospital gave a broadcast to the UK that was more informative and power packed than what General @MBuhari gave. Boris took questions. Buhari just stood there reading English that someone else typed for him. So uninspiring#BuhariVirus
