A former presidential aide Reno Omokri has said those who protested against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA) are hypocrites for not doing the same against the President Muhammadu Buhari government.
The allegation sparked outrage amongst Nigerians who protested at COZA on Sunday with Pastor Fatoyinbo stepping down on Monday.
However, Omokri said faulted the protesters for not doing the same against Buhari who rigged himself back to power in the 2019 elections.
He also noted that the present administration is built on lies and propaganda and thus Nigerians should extend such kind of protest to them.
In a series of tweet on his handle, he berated Nigerians for not standing up against the ills of the Buhari government.
“A pastor accused of RAPE. On the strength of the allegation, the public asked him to step down. He did,” he tweeted.
“The same public TOLERATE and CELEBRATE General @MBuhari, a man accused, with EVIDENCE, of certificate fraud. HYPOCRISY is Nigeria’s biggest issue.
“If The Bible were written in 2019, instead of 2000 years ago, our Lord Jesus may have used NIGERIANS as an example of HYPOCRISY rather than PHARISEES.”
According to him, “General @MBuhari rigged an election. He has [a] QUESTIONABLE certificate. Yet, our problem is FATOYINBO.
“2 of General @MBuhari’s ministers (@HMKemiAdeosun and Shittu) are ESTABLISHED to have certificate issues. They are free and attending parties with the same celebrities who went to protest at COZA. HYPOCRISY, not CORRUPTION is Nigeria’s biggest issue.
“Fatoyinbo was NOT elected. Non-members of COZA went to demonstrate against him. Meanwhile, General @MBuhari, who claims he was elected by Nigerians and who made Nigeria the world HQ for poverty, is there with his QUESTIONABLE certificate. HYPOCRISY.”
