Buhari supporters were paid £75 to protest: Omokri

Buhari supporters were paid £75 to protest: Omokri the former assistant to the ex-president Goodluck Jonathan said that the supporters were given bribes to protest.

The former assistant to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has claimed that President Muhammadu Buhari’s supporters were given a £75 bribe to protest at the Abuja house in London.

Buhari’s supporters stormed the area on Monday the 5th of April, 2021, with placards supporting President Muhammadu Buhari.

The rally is the continuation of an anti-Buhari protest led by Omokri at the same Abuja House where Buhari is reportedly staying while he undergoes a medical check-up.

Omokri had on Friday the 2nd of April, 2021, led a protest demanding that the president returns to Nigeria without going through his medicals.

He reacted to the protest supporting Buhari’s visit to the UK, explaining that the government paying supporters, is a very shameful act and the FG should be ashamed for doing such.

On his Twitter page, the former Presidential spokesman wrote: “Dear Garba Shehu, Is this all you guys could do despite your £75 per head bribe? Garba, admit it, you and your government are extremely shameless. Without paying anyone any amount of money, I was able to sustain Harass Buhari out of London for days and we will continue. Shame on you.

“Shame on General Buhari, their so-called ‘solidarity rally’ for Buhari at Abuja House flopped, with just 5 people showing up, despite the £75 per head they paid. El-Rufai is this the best you guys can do to counter #HarassBuhariOutofLondon. Better request for a refund of your bribe.”

The former aide to the ex-president Goodluck Jonathan further expressed his disgust at the act and stated how ashamed he is of the individuals who also took the bribe.  According to him, the President is not doing his job with the current state of Nigeria’s economy at the moment.

So for him, the President has no business visiting another country for a medical check-up when his own country needs to be fixed.
