The former aide to ex president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has knocked Ayodele Fayose, the former governor of Ekiti State for abusing former President, Olusegun Obasanjo over President Muhammadu Buhari’s decision to rename the Abuja National Stadium after Moshood Abiola.
In his tweet on Thursday, Mr Fayose said: “Honouring MKO Abiola by @MBuhari is to Obasanjo’s shame”.
“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.”
Meanwhile, in defense of Mr Obasanjo, Reno Omokri on Friday night said: “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.”
