Controversy! Buhari is older than he claims - Reno Omokri

- Reno Omokri says President Muhammadu Buhari lied to Nigerians about his age

- Omokri has also accused the present government of being biased

- The cleric says the Nigerian police's reaction to the Igbo quit notice threat, is a great indication that Nigeria's government is operating with prejudice

Reno Omokri in a series of posts on social media, has reacted to several issues plaguing the nation at the moment.

He tried to point out the flaws of the Nigerian government at the moment, stating that the government's inadequacies are a major reason why the nation is unsteady.

Abdulsalami's birthday and Buhari's age scandal

In reaction to the 75th birthday celebration of General Abdulsalami Abubakar, Omokri stirred some dust over the age of President Buhari.

He said: "Yesterday General Abdulsalami Abubakar turned 75 years old. Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari, his former boss and military senior (who joined the army years before Gen. Abubakar) says he is 74.

"If I talk they will say I am a wailer! In any case, we have a President who told us last October 1st that (and I am using his exact words), 'Investors from all over the world are falling over themselves to come and do business in Nigeria.'

"This is despite the fact that under Buhari, foreign investment into Nigeria has fallen to a nine year low.

"Well I guess a man who can tell such a blatant lie can be relied upon to state his real age. Inconclusive age. Inconclusive certificate. Inconclusive elections.

"Please General Abdulsalami Abubakar, find time to advise your 'younger' brother to be more honest during this year's October 1 speech."

Senator Saraki's victory at the CCT

Lending his voice to the reaction over Nigeria's Senate president's victory at the Code of Conduct Tribunal (CCT), Omokri said: "The presidency calls the discharge of Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki by the Code of Conduct Tribunal an 'outrageous travesty of justice'.

"This is the same Presidency that was quiet when a Kano court freed the killers of evangelist Bridget Agbahime after the Kano state Attorney General withdrew the charges against them.

"I guess that was not a 'travesty of justice' to them. This is the same Presidency that sees nothing wrong with President Muhammadu Buhari hiring 13 SANs for his defense in the case challenging the authenticity of his WAEC certificate.

"I do not need even one SAN if someone accuses me of not having my WAEC certificate. All I have to do is present it. If it is lost all I have to do is apply to WASC or Cambridge University for a letter acknowledging that I sat for and passed my WAEC/GCE.

"This is coming only two days after the National Judicial Council exposed the Buhari Presidency as liars who lied about their appeal in the case of reinstated Justice Adeniyi Ademola and five other judges.

"That Presidency with such a record of dishonesty has the guts to point fingers at Saraki is the real outrage and travesty! The only thing good about this Presidency is Professor Yemi Osinbajo."

Igbo quit notice

The charismatic aide to Jonathan also reacted to the quit notice order by the coalition of northern youths.

He said: "Over a week and the police have not arrested even one of the youths who gave the Igbos quit notice.

"Do you still doubt the 5% versus 97% mantra? Compare this with the speed with which the police arrested the man who named his dog Buhari.

"Compare that with the speed at which the one sided arrest was carried out after the Ife Hausa/Yoruba clash.

"This is the same way that the killers of evangelist Eunice Agbahime were discharged on the order of the Kano State Attorney General meanwhile Audu Maikori who erroneously tweeted false information and apologized was arrested faster than the speed of light. Is it not clear people?

"There is one law for the 5% and another law for the 97%. Welcome to the new and improved Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari!"
