Let Us Go Our Separate Ways – Omokri
The former media aide to Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has joined voice with some citizens calling for the separation of Nigeria.
The Oduduwa and Biafra groups have been calling for peaceful disintegration of the 1914th amalgamated Nigeria citing lopsided leadership, appointments, insecurity, unemployment, and many others.
Omokri who was responding to a statement credited to Borno State governor, Babangida Umura Zulum on his social media handles on Monday evening urged the federal government to consider putting the country aside if it can no longer contain everyone.
Pastor Reno Omokri, known for his best selling nuggets at bookshops, accused Zulum of lying severally,
He said the governor lied over his statement that President Mohammadu Buhari’s government has presently made life residents in Borno better.
He Added the recent statement that Christians are involved in Boko Haram’s bloody activities in the state is yet another lie by the Borno state governor.
Lamenting further Omokri pointedly noted that tribalism and religion blinded Zulum from seeing that the bloodshed and murderous behavior are carried out by those children they failed to educate.
Omokri regretted finding himself in the same country where Zulum, who he referred to as pestilent, liar exist.
“You people will just talk and push us to the wall. If Nigeria can’t contain all of us, then let is go our separate ways” Omokri added.
Recall Prof Zulum had, during the 17th Chief Gani Fawehinmi Annual Lecture put together by the Nigerian Bar Association, Ikeja branch on Friday called on Nigerians to see security challenges in both Yobe, Borno and Adamawa States as a problem facing everyone.
He alleged that the rampaging terrorists under the aegis of Boko Haram include Asians, Africans, Muslims, White men and Christians.
In his words partly: “I’m from Borno State, and many of our children are in Boko Haram. I’m not denying the fact. But again, they are being sponsored by many people across the world. Among Boko Haram, we have white men, Asians, Africans, Muslims and Christians,”
However, the governor said the banditry and insurgency are caused by the high unemployment rate, drug abuse poverty, pleaded with Nigerians to steer away from nepotism, tribalism and use of religion to cause division.
