Reno Omokri, former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has questioned President Muhammadu Buhari’s stance on tribalism.
During an interview aired on television, an aide to Buhari claimed he is open and accept people, irrespective of ethnicity adding that Buhari’s cook and driver are of Igbos.
Reacting to this statement, Omokri berated Buhari for employing the Igbo as cooks and drivers, saying he should have given them some other juicy post.
Taking to twitter, he wrote: “This @MBBuhari Campaign gimmick of his Igbo driver and cook is built on lies and is an insult to Igbos [sic] if the only thing Buhari sees them fit for is to drive and cook. They are not a slave race. The most significant thing Buhari has done for the Igbos is Python Dance.
“The Buhari Campaign says Buhari is not tribalistic and claim that his driver and cook are Igbos. First of all, this is a lie. But even if it is true, does it mean that all Buhari thinks Igbos are good for is as drivers and cooks? They can’t head any military agency?
