In a lengthy note on Instagram, Reno noted that the young Nigerians who took to the streets were not protesting the devaluation of the naira or insecurity in the country among other ills.
Omokri stated that only few Nigerians will turn up when it comes to protesting for their rights but will gladly sell out a Wizkid concert. Not stopping there, Reno concluded his post by saying that perhaps Nigerians do deserve Buhari as their president.

Excerpts from his post reads:
“They are protesting because they claim Big Brother cheated Pere. Now, you see why Nigeria is the way she is? Ask Nigerians to come out to protest for their rights and few will come out, if any. Ask them to come out for a Wizkid concert, and people who can’t feed will miraculously acquire money and sell out the concert. Imagine this going on on a Monday, when they should be productive at work or their businesses. We love to give our energies to the trivial, not the vital. Nigerians, perhaps we do deserve Buhari!”
