Former presidential media aide Reno Omokri has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being desperate to win the votes of Southwest in the 2019 elections.

The US-based pastor was reacting to Buhari declaring June 12 as Democracy Day.

President Buhari also honoured MKO Abiola, Babagana Kingibe and late human rights activist Gani Fawehinmi.

In a post on his Twitter page, Omokri described the president as a hypocrite.

He wrote: “President @Mbuhari is a joke. In desperation for the Southwest vote, he has declared June 12, Democracy Day a d given MKO Abiola a post humous GCFR.

“What hypocrisy! This was a man who served Abacha while Abacha jailed Abiola.

“This was a man who praised Abacha, Abiola’s jailer!”
