Man United: Leave Ole Gunner, face the ole in Aso Rock taking Nigeria in Reverse – Reno Omokri
The best-selling author and self-styled ‘Buhari-tormentor, Reno Omokri has reacted to the sacking of Manchester United’s coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following his late poor performance as the club manager.
The former media aide described Nigerians celebrating the Job termination as hypocrisy queried why the celebration while Nigeria’s President, Mohammadu Buhari has taken the country’s manu in reverse since assumption of office in 2015.
His statement reads partly “You celebrate Ole Gunnar’s sack by Manchester United, yet the Buhari you defend has taken Nigeria further backwards than Ole ever took Manu in reverse. Can you not see your hypocrisy?.
Instead, Omokri argued that Buhari ought to have been sacked going by the hardship residents are experiencing if not for the tribal and religious sentiments.
It continued “By default, you agree Buhari should have been sacked if not for your tribal and religious sentiments.
He went on to list some of the items purchased under the government of then-president, Goodluck Jonathan, which shows a high increase.
According to him, a bag of 50kg Rice was sold for ₦8000 in 2015, cement and Fuel were bought at rates of ₦800 and ₦87 respectively.
The list further put Gas at ₦2000, Electricity tariff was half the current rate, the Unemployment rate was single digit, and a $1 exchanged at ₦150 (₦199 in 2015)
Others include transportation measures, from Lagos-Abuja airfare at ₦10,000, Brand new tear rubber Kia Cerato sold at ₦3.6 million and a bottle of Coke was ₦60. A tin of Peak milk was ₦80
Reno Omokri reminded that Banditry was never existing in the Northwest and rampaging Killer Herdsmen were being arrested and tried under Nigeria’s law.
“Now, compare with what we have today. Leave Ole Gunnar and face the ole in Aso Rock! Reno added.
