Pastor Reno Omokri, the former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on electronic media, has lashed out again at Malam Nasir El-Rufai, over his latest statement regarding President Muhammadu Buhari.
El-Rufai had recently sent a powerful memo to President Muhammadu Buhari arguing that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has made the situation in Nigeria worse than it met it by failing to be proactive in taking key decisions in a timely manner.
In reaction to El-Rufai’s memo, Omokri wrote: “The mouth that Nasir El-Rufai used to bite Atiku Abubakar, then Olusegun Obasanjo then Umar Yar’Adua then Goodluck Jonathan has now been used to bite President Buhari!”
Adding: “A backbiter must always bite and a backstabber must always stab! President Muhammadu Buhari should go and buy former President Obasanjo’s book, My Watch, to read what he said about El-Rufai. Said Obasanjo “I recognised his weaknesses; the worst being his inability to be loyal to anybody or any issue consistently for long, but only to Nasir el-Rufai.” Did Obasanjo lie? You be the judge!””
Recall that earlier today, March 16, Naij.com reported that Omkri too a swipe at the Kaduna state governor of the scandal involving Apostle Johnson Suleman.
Omokri said If Malam Nasir El-Rufai can make slanderous comments about Jesus Christ, then he can equally do anything to get at Apostle Suleman, just as the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries, has alleged.
The former aid to GEJ made a couple of remarks on Facebook regarding the adultery scandal that has continued to evolve and generate great buzz around Nigeria.
He said: “Not that I agree With Omega Fire Ministry’s allegation that Nasir El-Rufai is behind Stephanie Otobo, but there are many coincidences and it begs questions. On March 29, 2016, Suleman challenged Elrufai over his Preaching License Bill. On April 3, 2016, Elrufai responded.
“A man who can pay herdsmen (as he himself admitted) instead of arresting them shouldn’t be underestimated. What is Suleman accused of? Sleeping with Otobo. Okay, El-Rufai tweeted on January 28, 2013 that “if Jesus criticises Jonathan’s government, Maku, Abati or Okupe will say that he slept with Mary Magdalene”.
“That tweet betrays a mindset. If a man can say this about Jesus, one wonders what will happen to a mere mortal. Also, of all the states in Nigeria, why did the second faceless accuser ask for the protection of the Kaduna state govt.
“Does Kaduna have a reputation for peace or security? And why would a govt confirm such a thing to Premium Times?
“Then consider what President Obasanjo, Elrufai’s boss of 8 years, wrote about him in his book ‘My Watch Vol 2 “Nasir’s penchant for reputation savaging is almost pathological.” What is happening to Suleman today? Is it not ‘reputation savaging’?”
