Peter Obi: Omokri looking for appointment from Tinubu - Prominent Kaduna cleric claims

A popular Kaduna cleric, Reverend David Ayuba Azzaman, has said Reno Omokri, the former special assistant on social media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, is not a Christian.

Reverend Azzaman said Omokri is looking for an appointment from President Bola Tinubu, hence his constant antagonism of Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 election.

The cleric, however, warned Omokri to “play it safe” with Atiku Abubakar, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

He wrote on his known Facebook page recently: “Muslims, stop tagging me to Reno Omokri post, he is not a Christian. Muslims are insulting Christians, saying an infidel cannot be FCT Minister (Nyesom Wike), Reno is mute and Nyesom Wike is his brother from Niger Delta. He doesn't want to say anything about the insult by Muslim clerics on Nyesom Wike a Christian because he does not want to offend Muslims, but he can criticise Pastor Enoch Adeboye for telling Christians to pray for Israel.

"Atiku is the one challenging President Tinubu for his certificate Reno didn't say "Pin" about it but he twisted the Certificate issue to Peter Obi as if it's Peter Obi that is accusing Tinubu not Atiku. Obviously, he is looking for an appointment from Tinubu but he needs to play it safe with Atiku.

“Anything that has to do with a Muslim Reno Omokri is not there but anything that has to do with insulting a Christian or Christianity he is there. Please stop tagging me to his post.”
