An aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has urged the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, over his recent attack on the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), saying he should rather focus on addressing the issue he has with Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State.
In a post on his Twitter handle, Omokri alleged that Tinubu was a ‘slave’ for shifting attention to the PDP instead of facing the Governor of Kaduna State Nasir el-Rufai, who has been taking swipes at him recently.
Tinubu, during a visit to President Muhammadu Buhari, in Saudi Arabia, took a swipe at the PDP, saying the party and its leaders were handicapped because of their colossal defeat at the general elections.
Reacting, Omokri took to Twitter to slam the former Lagos State Governor, saying: “El-Rufai insulted Bola Tinubu and Tinubu did not respond to him. The PDP did not insult or attack Tinubu, yet he (Tinubu) heavily insulted them.
“What does that make Tinubu?
“Truly, slavery is evil! El-Rufai insulted Bola Tinubu. Instead of facing his slave master, who insulted him, Tinubu rather projects his anger in an unprovoked attack on PDP. This is what they call transference in psychology!”
Recall that El-Rufai, while speaking at a conference in Lagos recently had said he has the political formula to put an end to godfatherism in Lagos politics as he did in Kaduna State.
Asked if he’d targeted Tinubu with his statement, the governor doubled down, saying he owed the acclaimed godfather of Lagos politics no apology.
