You ban foreign rice, yet seek their medical aide, Omokri slams Buhari


Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has once again lambasted President, Major Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

Recall that Omokri – a known critic of the Buhari regime, and some Nigerians had earlier staged a protest at the Nigeria House in London against the President who has been in the UK’s capital for a medical checkup since last Friday.

He has also in several Twitter posts questioned the decision of the President to have himself treated in London after reportedly failing to build a single hospital in Nigeria.

On Tuesday night, Omokri highlighted the hypocrisy of the President questioning why Buhari will ban foreign rice and embark on a foreign medical trip.

He wrote,  “You ban foreign rice and plan foreign healthcare. Ore wa (Our friend), reason the matter now? Your foreign doctors now know you more intimately than @AishaMBuhari. Any foreign agent can use them to compromise you. We’re not your enemies. We just want you to have sense #HarassBuhariOutofLondon.”

The comptroller-general of the Nigerian Customs Service, Hameed Ali, had said this was part of an effort to curb smuggling.

He had said, “All goods, for now, are banned from being exported or imported through our land borders and that is to ensure we have total control over what comes in.

“We are strategising on how best the goods can be handled when we eventually get to the point where this operation will relax for the influx of goods.
