Jonathan’s ex-aide gets flak for attacking Buhari, others

Port Harcourt, Rivers State-based lawyer, Princewill Dike, has berated a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, for his incessant verbal attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari; minister-designate Rotimi Amaechi and All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole.

Dike, yesterday in Port Harcourt, wondered why Omokri uses what he called gutter language on the three leaders of the governing APC, instead of addressing challenges facing the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He said: “It is rather disturbing how the former Special Assistant (SA) on Social Media to Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has condescended to the despicable level of using gutter language on the change elements who democratically dethroned his principal. More worrisome is the fact that he is a pastor and lawyer.

“One would have expected the man who, has constituted himself into an ignominious Internet troll, to address issues in his party. But alas! That is not Omokri. Rather, he, like an adult playing with toys, often resorts to the fallacy of argumentum ad hominem – evading the topical engagement to an abuse to the person.

“Today, God is punishing them through the Sheriff, President Muhammadu Buhari. Still, Omokri cannot see anything wrong with the government he served. Sadly, he is stopping at nothing to deride the God-sent messengers (Buhari, Amaechi and Oshiomhole), who rescued Nigeria from the claws of the Augean stables.”

The lawyer noted that even as a cleric and lawyer, Omokri had refused to see efforts of the Buhari administration to reinvent Nigeria and put it on the path of real development.

He said: “Omokri is going mad against President Buhari and his change agents because they removed food from his table. If not, why would he not hide his head in shame that he was a part of the pillage of the common patrimony of the long-suffering Nigerians, as witnessed by the humongous jaw-dropping fraud that characterised the government he served and today defending to the point of insanity?

“For a lawyer and pastor to descend to the level of paranoia and blindly refusing to see anything good in the genuine efforts being made by President Buhari to reinvent Nigeria and put it on the path of real development truly convinces me that he …needs help.”
