Reno Omokri, former former media special assistant to former president Goodluck Jonathan, confronted former Ekiti state governor Ayo Fayose for his attack (Fayose) on former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
Following the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari to change the name of the national stadium in Abuja after Moshood Abiola, the winner of the presidential election of 12 June 1993, Fayose had criticized Obasanjo.
The previous Governor, in his reaction on Thursday, had tweeted: “Honoring MKO Abiola by @MBuhari is a pity for Obasanjo.
“It remains a sore-point of his political history that because of ego, Obasanjo, who’s the greatest beneficiary of the June 12, 1993 struggle failed to honour his kinsman, MKO Abiola. So, I commend President Buhari.”
Reacting to Fayose’s attack, Omokri tweeted, “I disagree with @GovAyoFayose that @MBuhari honouring Abiola is to Obasanjo’s shame.
“Who built the stadium Buhari named after MKO? Is it not Obasanjo? Abiola’s slogan was ‘farewell to poverty’.
“Between Obasanjo and Buhari, who bid farewell to poverty? Of course ObJ.”
