How Buhari Made Nnamdi Kanu a Celebrity and Gave Him Power - Ex Presidential Aide, Reno Omokri

Reno Omokri
 
While speaking in a live video on Facebook, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on new media, Reno Omokri, said that President Muhammadu Buhari made Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), a celebrity.
 
According to TheCable News, Omokri said until Buhari arrested Kanu, he was “a nobody”, adding that if Kanu had been ignored, his agitation would have died a natural death.
 
The former presidential aide also said if Buhari had equitably distributed his appointments, he “would have just won the hearts and minds of people from the south-east”.
 
He said; “President Muhammadu Buhari actually created this mess, did you know who Nnamdi Kanu was before President Muhammadu Buhari had him arrested? He was a nobody and I don’t mean that in a disrespectful manner, you IPOB people you are very good with the media. Don’t come after me I don’t mean that in a bad way.

“Until he was arrested by Muhammadu Buhari he was a nobody, the president actually created Nnamdi Kanu, made him a celebrity and gave him the power he has right now.

“Right now you have empowered the young man to do a lot more damage to you, what was he doing? Radio Biafra? How many people were listening?

“I was watching somewhere and a Turkish diplomat had actually gone to pay Nnamdi Kanu’s house to pay a courtesy visit to him. That is how big you have made him.

“The president should try and contain that but by sending soldiers to Abia to surround his house, we could have avoided that controversy. If you want this boy’s agitation to die a natural death ignore him.

“Look at the NNPC, if you give a balanced appointment – look at the security chiefs are overwhelmingly from the north and you are part of the north. If you had done equity, you would have just won the hearts and minds of people from the south-east. They are agitating for Biafra because they feel they are not well treated by the current Nigerian government.”

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
