Niger: Omokri sends message to President Tinubu over coup mongers in Nigeria, tells him what to do

2023-08-13 19:48:16 - Nigeria news.

FCT, Abuja - Reno Omokri, a prominent supporter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on Sunday, August 13, said President Bola Tinubu is showing too much weakness.

Omokri, via his verified Twitter handle, said a military coup cannot happen in neighbouring Niger Republic, and prominent citizens would be freely calling for a coup in Nigeria. According to Omokri, "if I were the President, by now, such people would be in an underground DSS cell."

The diaspora-based social media personality stated that President Tinubu may be sending "a very wrong message" to people looking for his weakness if he fails to bring 'coup mongers' to book.

He wrote:

"Freedom of speech does not include calling for a military takeover. Muhammdu Buhari was a disaster in the area of the economy and security. Still, I have every confidence in him and President Olusegun Obasanjo that if you tried this under them, you would pray for death because of what they will use their legal powers to do to you."

Furthermore, the former presidential aide added that to be a leader, President Tinubu "must punish even the slightest hint of disloyalty to the state and reward good behaviour".

In a piece of related news, reported that the Defence Headquarters on Sunday, August 13, said it is worried about false and disturbing social media reports twisted to state that the Armed Forces of Nigeria (AFN) received a request to effect a change of leadership in the country.

The Defence Headquarters' worry was made known in a statement signed by Brigadier-General Tukur Gusau, the director of Defence Information.
