Don’t burn down Nigeria because you lost election — Omokri knocks Peter Obi

Don’t burn down Nigeria because you lost election —  Omo

Former presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri, has on Friday asked the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi not to burn down the country because he lost the 2023 presidential election.

Omokri who stated this in an interview with Channels Television on Friday stressed on the need to implement the Uwais report on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Omokri said, “We need to implement the Uwais report on INEC whereby the president should be stripped off the power to appoint the chairman of INEC and the commissioners.

“It’s going to go to a body that is non-partisan and objective. Also, I want to see a more rigorous ‘Buy Nigerian campaign. I’m a bit disappointed that it’s not evident in the Bola Tinubu-led administration.

“We need to push ‘Buy Nigerian’ campaign at the governmental levels too. We need to promote made in Nigeria.

“Also to tell people that if there’s a made in Nigeria alternative for the foreign goods you buy, buy the Nigerian alternative. There’s Dangote, call with Glo, drive Inmoson and fly Air Peace,” he said.

Recall that Omokri had earlier hit Obi for saying it is a national disgrace for Nigeria to receive food from war-torn Ukraine.

Obi had said earlier on Monday that it is a national disgrace for Nigeria to be receiving food from Ukraine which is embroiled in war with Russia.

Omokri, in a post on X said “It is very ignorant for Peter Obi to say that it is a “national disgrace” for Nigeria to receive food aid from Ukraine because it is a war-torn country.”

He said Obi needed to be educated about Ukraine and wheat, saying Egypt received food aid from Ukraine long before Nigeria did.
