Special counsel for the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Alloy Ejimakor has alleged that the camp of the presidential candidate of the People Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, is using the controversial former aide, Reno Omokri, to set the north against Igbos.
Naija News reports that Alloy Ejimakor made this known via his Twitter handle on Saturday where he maintained that the narrative Omokri is allegedly pushing will eventually validate IPOB and Igbos.
Recall that Omokri, who is backing Atiku, had criticized Peter Obi for calling him arrogant for his remark in a recent interview where Obi said ”What we’ve chosen to do in this country is to consistently hire vehicle drivers to fly the Nigerian airplane instead of hiring qualified pilots. My commitment is, let us campaign and deal with issues of the problem of the country.”
Reno then advised the NNPP candidate, Rabiu Kwankwaso to “do a voiceover of Peter Obi Arise interview in Hausa. Let everyday people in Kano and the Northwest listen to him describe Kwankwaso and other Presidential candidates the way he did. Such hubris! You are a pilot. They are mere drivers?”
The tweet sparked outrage amongst Peter Obi supporters who immediately started a petition on Change. Org to ‘Ban Reno Omokri from Twitter & Rescind his Business Insider Influencer of the Year Award’ over those tweets.
Reacting to the development, Alloy tweeted “With Atiku’s camp (per @renoomokri) instigating the North against Ndigbo & Kwankwaso latching on IPOB as the tar brush, you would think they’re running against Ndigbo & IPOB, not @PeterObi & Tinubu.
“Fact: The more they do this, the more they validate the #IPOB & Ndigbo.”
