Former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has castigated President Muhammadu Buhari for commiserating with the families of the victims of Sunday’s suicide bombings in Mandarari village, Borno State.
President Buhari, yesterday night, condemned the attack and sent his condolences to families of the victims.
The President wrote “I commiserate with the families of the victims of yesterday’s Viewing Center bomb blasts in Mandarari, Konduga LGA of Borno State.
“My deepest condolences to all those affected.”
Responding to this, Omokri berated the president on his Twitter page, stressing that residents of Borno State do not need condolences but action in the fight against Boko Haram.
He said, “Dear General Buhari, Borno people do not need COMMISERATION. They need ACTION.”
Omokri further blamed the president for misleading the international community by “lying” to them that Boko Haram insurgents had been defeated.
“Last month, you went to Qatar to lie that Boko Haram were defeated.
“These are people that could have helped us defeat Boko Haram. But you LIED to look good to them”, he said.
