Former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and controversial author, Reno Omokri has berated President Muhammadu Buhari for nominating Lauretta Onochie as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) representing Delta State.
Naija News reports that Onochie is a Personal Assitant on Social Media to President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, Onochie nomination was rejected by the senate because of her partisanship and breach of the federal character principle.
Reacting in a statement on his Instagram page, Reno slammed Buhari, revealing he is no honour for nominating an Odious and pedestrian person like Onochie. He went further to applaud the senate for having more wisdom than the president.
In his own words, he wrote; I commend the Senate for dropping Lauretta Onochie. I did not want to say anything while the process was ongoing, but by nominating such an odious and pedestrian person, Buhari showed that even the little grudging respect we have for him because of his office is wasted. The man has no honour. How can you nominate a woman like that who has insulted almost everyone that matters in Nigeria, in both parties, using the most gutter language? A woman who insulted former President Jonathan while he was praying to God? Even if you must insult someone, is it while they are praying? And that is who Buhari wants to put in INEC? Tufiakwa! Thank God the Senate has more wisdom than Buhari!
