The former Media aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has tackled former Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, over his (Fayose) for criticizing former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
Fayose had criticised Obasanjo for not honouring the acclaimed winner of the June 12th 1999 presidential election, MKO Abiola.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s had renamed the Abuja National Stadium after Moshood Abiola, the adjudged winner of the June 12 1993 presidential election.
The former Governor, in his reaction on Thursday, had tweeted, “Honouring MKO Abiola by @MBuhari is to Obasanjo’s shame.
“It remains a sore-point of his political history that because of ego, Obasanjo, who’s the greatest beneficiary of the June 12, 1993 struggle failed to honour his kinsman, MKO Abiola. So, I commend President Buhari.”
But while reacting to Fayose’s attack, Omokri tweeted, “I disagree with @GovAyoFayose that @MBuhari honouring Abiola is to Obasanjo’s shame.
“Who built the stadium Buhari named after MKO? Is it not Obasanjo? Abiola’s slogan was ‘farewell to poverty’.
“Between Obasanjo and Buhari, who bid farewell to poverty? Of course ObJ.”©Standard Gazette, 2021.
