Reno Omokri has berated Nigerians who are attacking Katsina state residents for celebrating ex-President Buhari who returned to the state on Monday, May 29, after he handed over power to President Buhari.
On Tuesday, Katsina indigenes trooped out to honor President Buhari by hosting a Durbar celebration in his honor. Some Nigerians felt Katsina residents should not be celebrating Buhari after they grappled with banditry and killings during his time in office.
In a post shared on his Instagram page, Reno opined that if Peter Obi can be celebrated by Anambra state indigenes despite recording the most extrajudicial killings under the Obi administration, Katsina state residents should be allowed to celebrate President Buhari. His post reads
‘’Castigating Katsina people for celebrating General Buhari shows the mental laziness and double standards of some of us. Anambra had the most extrajudicial killings under Peter Obi. Research it. Hundreds of young Anambra males were killed, and their bodies were dumped in the Ezu River under Obi.
Yet, Anambra people still celebrate Peter Obi, who saved their money in his personal bank to earn interest for him rather than build infrastructure for them. They not only celebrated Obi, but they also gave him an astonishing 97% of their votes during #NigerianElections2023.
If we did not condemn that, why are we acting like Katsina people are intellectually inferior for celebrating a man who built more infrastructure for them than anyone living or dead?
Buhari built universities, railways, roads, hospitals, and other projects in Katsina. Name just one school Obi built in Anambra. If you can’t, then what do we call you?”
