Omokri said Tinubu should allow Emefiele to defend himself against any allegation raised against him.

He wrote:

"Where is Godwin Emefiele? The Tinubu administration should not lock him up and begin to make public allegations against him.
"This is precisely what Buhari did to Jonathan administration officials as soon as he took over in 2015. They were locked up, and while incarcerated, allegations were made to turn the public against them, without giving them an opportunity to defend themselves."

Furthermore, Omokri asked President Tinubu to allow Nigerians to hear from Emefiele.

Omokri praises President Tinubu

However, he praised President Tinubu for starting his administration "so well".

Additionally, Omokri stated that the president "should not continue the draconian practices as his immediate predecessor (Buhari)" as this "is similar to what late Sani Abacha did, which drove even Tinubu to exile in 1994."
