A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has asked Nigerians to reject the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) following a statement on the primary election of the party made by Aisha Buhari, wife of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The wife of the president faulted the process of the APC primary elections conducted in some states saying the party was unfair to many aspirants.
Aisha had on Sunday expressed disappointment over the processes employed during the elections. She called on Nigerians to speak out against what she tagged as ‘impunity’ employed by the ruling party’s leadership led by Adams Oshiomhole.
Her comments stirred mixed reactions from Nigerians as some applauded her for speaking out, while others accused her of criticizing the process because her brother lost the APC Adamawa State governorship primary.
Reacting to Aisha’s statement, Omokri, a stark critic of the Buhari administration questioned why Nigerians should believe in APC when the wife to the President does not.
He, therefore, stated that the PDP was a better option for Nigerians in 2019, adding that nobody knows Buhari and APC more than Aisha.
Omokri wrote: “If Aisha Buhari, Buhari’s wife does not believe in APC and rejected their primaries, then why should Nigerians believe in the APC or accept their primaries?
“Can anybody know Buhari and APC more than the First Lady? PDP is a better option.”
