No birthday wishes for Buhari, Nigerians undergoing pain – Reno Omokri

A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan and social media influencer, Reno Omokri has said he has no wishes for President Muhammadu Buhari because the latter has caused pain to Nigerians.

Omokri made this known to DAILY POST on Saturday in a statement, entitled: ’80th Birthday Tribute To General Buhari’.

According to him, Buhari’s birthday comes when Nigeria’s debt profile has surged.

He said when the President came into office in 2015, the country was much better than it is today.

Omokri urged Buhari to provide solutions to the country’s myriad of challenges.

He said, “It is rather poignantly coincidental that on the day General Buhari marks his 80th birthday, it was revealed that Nigeria is now one of the top 4 debtors to the World Bank. We are the fourth most indebted nation. Only India, Pakistan and Bangladesh owe more than us.

“In 2015, Nigeria was rich, and Buhari was poor. In 2022, Buhari is rich, and Nigeria is poor. I see no reason to wish the person who achieved such an extraordinary destiny a happy birthday.

“First, he has already made himself happy with our commonwealth. How much of our lean resources has he spent on his health as Nigeria’s number one health tourist to London, UK?

“How much was spent on his son, Yusuf Buhari’s wedding last year? The price tag was reported to be more than $1 million. More than 100 private jets landed in Kano. The couple made the front page of Europe’s Tatler Magazine under the title ‘Inside Nigeria’s ultra-glamorous royal wedding.”

“And this is a man who had to take a loan to pay for his Presidential nomination form in 2015. Today, Nigerians have to take loans just to feed themselves.

“So, why should I wish such a wastrel and leprous-fingered fellow a happy 80th birthday? A man who has brought much unhappiness to Nigeria, to the point where we became the world headquarters for extreme poverty under him, and our currency became one of the worst performing on Earth, moving from ₦190 to $1 in 2015 to ₦750 to $1 today?

“The only thing I am eager to wish Buhari is bye-bye on May 29, 2023. And he should not count on retiring to Daura in peace. He and Buratai must answer for the Lekki Massacre of peaceful, unarmed EndSARS protesters they killed on October 20, 2020, and the 347 men, women, children and infants they killed during the December 12, 2015, Zaria Massacre of Shiites, amongst other state-sponsored killings”, the statement concluded.
