Buhari a tyrant – Jonathan’s aide, Omokri reacts to Martin Luther Kings’ award


Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the award by Martin Luther Kings’ family to President Muhammadu Buhari.

This is as the children of Martin Luther King and the King Centre had purportedly dismissed granting any award to President Muhammadu Buhari few days ago.

Recall that some members of the African American civil rights leaders had on Tuesday given an award to Buhari in Abuja.

This was followed by a purported speech from the family, urging Nigerians to reelect Buhari 

Responding to the award, the presidency in a tweet wrote: “President @MBuhari today at the State House received Martin Luther King Jnr’s family. He was also conferred with the 1st Black History Month National Black Excellence and Exceptional African Leadership Award 2018.

However, the King Centre has issued a statement denying that the award was issued by them or the children of the Martin Luther King.

Reacting, Omokri expressed joy that the family denied giving such award.

Omokri on his Twitter page wondered how Buhari, who he described as a tyrant, could be given a leadership award.

He tweeted “Thank God @TheKingCenter denied that they gave an award to Buhari or asked Nigerians to reelect him.

“I was wondering how Martin Luther King‘s family will visit Nigeria to give an award to a tyrant!

“Their father had a dream and they came to Nigeria to associate with a nightmare?”
