Reno Omokri, a former aide to former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has blasted pro-Buhari supporters for receiving bribe in order to show support to President Muhammadu Buhari in London.
The President had visited United Kingdom prior to the Easter holiday for a routine medical check up, as it was reported by Switch Nigeria.
It was gathered that during his stay at the Abuja House London, the former Military Head of State was greeted by disgruntled protesters, many of whom were of Nigerian descent, who called for his resignation.
However, another group also showed up with placards canvassing support for the President, something Omokri described as a cheap move.
The former aide stated that £75 was paid each ‘support’ by the APC in order to give Buhari a good public image.
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 thoroughly shameless. Without paying anyone one kobo, 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 only 5 people turning up, despite the £75 per head they paid. El-Rufai is this the best you guys can do to counter #HarassBuhariOutofLondon. Better demand a refund of your bribe.”
