Ogun rally: How Tinubu caused attack on Buhari, Oshiomhole


Reno Omokri, the former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to the attacks on President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC national Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and other party dignitaries at Ogun State Presidential Rally.

The presidential campaign rally of the ruling party was on Monday marred with violence after the state governor, Ibikunle Amosun, attempted to campaign for another candidate.

Frustrated by his action, National Leader of APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu flung the APC flag and and used his left hand to support his jaw.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo was also shouted down during the rally in his home state.

Also, the crowd threw stones at Buhari and Adams Oshiomhole as the president presented the flag to the party’s governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun.

Omokri, reacting to the incidents, blamed Tinubu for the attack on APC dignitaries.

The former presidential spokesman said the attack was as a result of insults rained on ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo by Tinubu during APC rally on Saturday in Lagos.

Omokri on his Twitter page wrote: “If you know you watched the video of Ogun Governor, Amosun’s face, when Bola Tinubu was insulting President Obasanjo, a son of Ogun two days ago in Lagos, you will not be surprised why Ogun people stoned Buhari and Tinubu today.

“But Olusegun Obasanjo has a strong head! It did not take up to 48 hours for those who were insulting him to receive the greatest insult of their lives. And just as their insult on Obj was caught on camera, their DISGRACE was caught on video.

“Watch this video of Tinubu throwing the APC FLAG away in Ogun after being stoned and disgraced. Two days ago he insulted Obasanjo as “expired milk” that should be thrown away. Two days later it is APC’s flag he threw away.”
