Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has attacked detained activist, Omoyele Sowore, describing him as a liar and an ally to President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to him, Sowore helped President Buhari ascend power in 2015 by cooking up all manners of lies against Jonathan.

Omokri said in as much he sympathizes with Sowore, he can’t help but feel that his travails are self inflicted.

The Federal Government had last week filed seven counts charge of treasonable felony and money laundering against Sowore who is also the Convener of #RevolutionNow protest.

Sowore, a presidential candidate in the February 2019 presidential election is charged along with Olawale Bakare, also known as Mandate.

In a series of tweets, Omokri said, “If you say Omoyele Sowore is a liar, I will agree. He tells deliberate lies to destroy the reputation of those he‘s against, using his Sahara Reporters website. He did it to me personally and my boss. But neither @GEJonathan, nor I ever contemplated his arrest.

“I sympathise with Sowore, but I can’t help but feel that his travails are self inflicted. I know his nature. He will come out of jail, read this, and use saharareporters to savage my reputation. But even at that, he created the @MBuhari Frankenstein monster

“What is happening between Sowore and General @MBuhari is just a bromance gone sour. Sowore is not some innocent activist that General Buhari is persecuting. He was an ally of l Buhari, who sold him to Nigeria. We must not rewrite history or will repeat it

“Using saharareporters, Sowore dishonestly DEMARKETED then President @GEJonathan as a “DRUNKARD”, a “SLOW POKE”, “CLUELESS” and MARKETED @MBuhari as an “INCORRUPTIBLE”, a man who would “CRUSH” Jonathan, and was “BETTER” than Jonathan and “GOOD” for Nigeria

“In 2014, when @GEJonathan said ‘I am the most INSULTED president in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total freedom you enjoyed’, he was referring to Sowore and saharareporters. Nigerians mistook his TOLERANCE for WEAKNESS

“Today, General @MBuhari is trying Sowore, his former partner in propaganda, for insulting him. If insulting a President is a crime, both Buhari & Sowore are guilty due to what they did to ex President @GEJonathan. But it is NOT a crime. Sowore should be freed!

“Sowore is not the victim here. The victim, who refused to be a victim, is former President @GEJonathan, who Sowore accused of thievery, yet all his children schooled in Nigeria while he was President. 5 years after leaving office, no one has found GEJ wanting

“It is possible that people around @GEJonathan made money, just as people around General @MBuhari are making money. But, Jonathan was NOT the THIEF, DRUNKARD or WEAKLING Sowore painted him to be. He is God fearing. To fear God is weakness to men like Sowore

“Then President @GEJonathan is MEEK. MEEKNESS is not WEAKNESS. MEEKNESS means you have POWER, but you RESTRAIN yourself from ABUSING it because you want to BUILD, not DESTROY. Moses was MEEK. Nigerians dont deserve a MEEK leader. We deserve a General @MBuhari!

“On 4 occasions, Sowore visited Nigeria while @GEJonathan was President. We knew his whereabouts. He met then CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi, and was in contact with @MBuhari and @Elrufai. But @GEJonathan NEVER ARRESTED him because he believed in PRESS FREEDOM

“Sowore marketed @GEJJonathan as corrupt and weak. GEJ would never make a man indicted by the army for theft, as reported by @PremiumTimesng, a minister. GEJ deported South Africans in retaliation when SA deported Nigerians. It is Buhari who is WEAK & CORRUPT.

“The problem with the average Nigerian, is that we CRY over CONSEQUENCES, and LAUGH over ACTIONS, not realising that CONSEQUENCE follows ACTIONS as DAY follows NIGHT. Sowore and Saharareporters are the ACTION. @MBuhari is the CONSEQUENCE. We are the AUDIENCE!

“I look at those shedding tears for Sowore and I remember when @GEJonathan’s son was crying after his classmates laughed at him because they read on saharareporters that his father is a drunkard. Even children believed what they read on saharareporters!

“Without Sowore, General @MBuhari wont be President. It‘s an indisputable FACT. He and Saharareporters poisoned the mind of Nigerians against then President @GEJonathan. As Christ said “offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!”-Luke 17:1

“It is a different matter if Sowore and saharareporters used the TRUTH to turn Nigerians against then President @GEJonathan, but they used LIES. Deliberate and malignant LIES. You cannot DESTROY another man and expect Providence to BUILD you up! ko le work!

“What Gen @MBuhari has done to Sowore is a common Northern tactic. I lived in the North. I know. Abacha used it on Abiola. He used Abiola to destroy Shonekan. After Abiola destroyed Shonekan’s government, he was of no use to Abacha, so Abacha threw him in jail.

“General Buhari and @Elrufai know what they used Sowore to achieve in destroying @GEJonathan. They are not fools. These guys are more political sophisticated than even Sowore/Tinubu know. It is brinksmanship. They wont sit and watch them do the same to Buhari

“All of you were FOOLED when General @MBuhari rubbed mentholatum on his handkerchief and used it to induce crocodile tears. Shebi you are now seeing the genuine Buhari now? Who is crying now? Buhari or you? When we told you did you listen? Enjoy your Buhari!

“Gen @MBuhari used Sowore & saharareporters against Jonathan and he will NEVER let them be used against him. Sowore should have known that the first person a feudal king kills is the kingmaker that got him the throne. So he cant remove him from the same throne.

“What an irony! Sowore used saharareporters to remove then President @GEJonathan from office, but today, he cant use the same saharareporters to remove himself from jail. Don’t dig your enemy’s hole too deep so that when you fall into it, you can also escape.”
