Former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri, has said that the worst thing President Muhammadu Buhari did to remand the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu in prison.
He also commended acting President Yemi Osinbajo for attending an event celebrating Biafra at 50, held at the Shehu Musa Yar’adua Centre in Abuja. He said:
The worst thing President Muhammadu Buhari could have done was jailing Nnamdi Kanu. PMB is responsible for making him one of the most popular men in Nigeria today. Let this be a lesson to someone out there. If you walk with God, even if you are not a perfect person (and no one is perfect), God would use what your enemy intended as a setback for you to set you up for greatness.
With Professor Yemi Osinbajo, there is hope for Nigeria. I was touched when as acting President (not coordinator as Buhari would have him be) he personally attended the #Biafraat50 event that held on Thursday, May 25, 2017 in Abuja. For one, President Muhammadu Buhari would NEVER had attended such a function. But by attending the event, the acting President has applied a healing balm and a soothing salve on the injured feelings of pro-Biafra agitators. Without firing a bullet and using brute force, as President Buhari has been doing, he has done more to make those who self identify as Biafrans feel wanted by Nigeria.
