The former Spokesperson to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokiri has refused to remain calm over the continuous detention of the AAC presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore by the DSS.
Omokiri who in a tweet narrated thus;
If you say Omoyele Sowore is a liar, I will agree. He tells deliberate lies to destroy the reputation of those he‘s against, using his Sahara Reporters website. He did it to me personally and my boss. But neither Goodluck Jonathan nor I ever contemplated his arrest.
I sympathise with Sowore, but I cant help but feel that his travails are self inflicted. I know his nature. He will come out of jail, read this, and use saharareporters to savage my reputation. But even at that, he created the Buhari Frankenstein monster.
What is happening between Sowore and President Muhammadu Buhari is just a bromance gone sour. Sowore is not some innocent activist that Buhari is persecuting. He was an ally of Buhari, who sold him to Nigeria. We must not rewrite history or will repeat it.
Using SaharaReporters, Sowore dishonestly DEMARKETED then President Goodluck Jonathan as a “DRUNKARD”, a “SLOW POKE”, “CLUELESS” and MARKETED Muhammadu Buhari as an “INCORRUPTIBLE”, a man who would “CRUSH” Jonathan, and was “BETTER” than Jonathan and “GOOD” for Nigeria.
In 2014, when Jonathan said “I am the most INSULTED president in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total freedom you enjoyed”, he was referring to Sowore and saharareporters. Nigerians mistook his TOLERANCE for WEAKNESS.
-Today, President Buhari is trying Sowore, his former partner in propaganda, for insulting him. If insulting a President is a crime, both Buhari & Sowore are guilty due to what they did to ex President Jonathan.
But it is NOT a crime. Sowore should be freed.
Sowore is not the victim here. The victim, who refused to be a victim, is former President Jonathan who Sowore accused of thievery, yet all his children schooled in Nigeria while he was President. Five years after leaving office, no one has found GEJ wanting.
It is possible that people around Jonathan made money, just as people around Buhari are making money. But, Jonathan was NOT the THIEF, DRUNKARD or WEAKLING Sowore painted him to be. He is God fearing. To fear God is weakness to men like Sowore
Then President Jonathan is MEEK. MEEKNESS is not WEAKNESS. MEEKNESS means you have POWER, but you RESTRAIN yourself from ABUSING it because you want to BUILD, not DESTROY. Moses was MEEK. Nigerians dont deserve a MEEK leader. We deserve a Buhari.
On four occasions, Sowore visited Nigeria while Jonathan was President. We knew his whereabouts. He met then CBN Governor, Lamido Sanusi, and was in contact with Buhari and Elrufai.
But Jonathan NEVER ARRESTED him because he believed in PRESS FREEDOM.
Sowore marketed Jonathan as corrupt and weak. GEJ would never make a man indicted by the army for theft, as reported by PremiumTimes a minister GEJ deported South Africans in retaliation when South Africa deported Nigerians. It is Buhari who is WEAK & CORRUPT he added.
