Reno Omokri, a senior special assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan has slammed the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi for insisting on transforming Nigeria from consumption to a production economy if elected president.

Obi, who is a former Anambra governor is campaigning on the need to urgently fixed Nigeria's economy to make it beneficial to Nigerians.

However, Omokri who is a led campaigner of Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has likened Obi to Satan campaigning against sin.

The socio-activist claimed that the LP presidential candidate was the number one importer of consumer goods in Nigeria.

In a series of tweets, Omokri said Obi imports beer and alcoholic drinks yet campaigns about turning Nigeria into a consumer nation.

According to Omokri: “Peter Obi is the single greatest contributor to consumption in Nigeria. He imports almost everything from A to Z, including beer and alcoholic drinks.

“Yet, he campaigns on turning Nigeria from consumption to production? It is like Satan campaigning against sin!

“Enter any major supermarket in Nigeria. At least 15% of what you will see was imported into Nigeria by @PeterObi. Not manufactured.

“IMPORTED. If I am lying, I challenge Peter to sue me. And this is the fellow who wants to move Nigeria from consumption to production?”
