Former presidential media aide during the administration of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has described the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as a hypocrite.
Omokri made the allegation in his reaction to Tinubu’s call for Nigerians to set politics apart and pray for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu urged Nigerians to put politics aside and pray for President Muhammadu Buhari for strength and wisdom to protect the nation.
He made this call on Wednesday in his Eid-el-Fitr message titled, ‘Let righteous acts, efforts of Ramadan continue to guide our actions.
Tinubu, who joined Muslims in Nigeria and across the world to mark the completion of this year’s Ramadan fast, stressed that fasting is a sign of complete devotion to God.
But in his reaction to the call, Omokri in a Twitter statement wondered why Tinubu didn’t call for Nigerians to pray for Jonathan but rather called for the former President’s resignation.
He wrote: “In a statement today, Bola @AsiwajuTinubu asked Nigerians to ‘put politics aside’ and pray for General @MBuhari.
“Tinubu is a hypocrite. Did he put politics aside to pray for then President @GEJonathan?
“Instead, both Tinubu and Buhari asked Jonathan to resign!”
