Peter Obi Reportedly Petitions EFCC Against Reno Omokri
The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi has reportedly written to Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) against former aide to ex-president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri.
Reno Omokri who has been a forefront antagonist of Peter Obi and his soaring supporters, appears to have politics aside, strained his relationship with Peter Obi whom he had, before Peter Obi made his switch from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to Labour Party (LP), described as a man who exampled good governance in Anambra State and his idol.
Subsequently, Reno Omokri has become notorious for his hate-filled, malignant campaign against Mr. Peter Obi including linking him to a proscribed secessionist group in Nigeria, the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB); a propaganda he adopted to de-market Peter Obi especially in the sight of the northern Nigerians. He had previously accused Mr. Peter Obi of religious offences which he termed “Haram”.
Interestingly, Reno Omokri who claims being a pastor, revealed in his Facebook page that Mr. Peter Obi has petitioned the anti-graft agency against him. According to him, Mr. Peter Obi wrote EFCC to institute an investigation against him following his release of his pay slip as a presidential aide to Good Luck Ebele Jonathan’s administration.
Reno Omokri had publicly published his pay slip as special assistant to president Good Luck Ebele Jonathan; an act which attracted outrageous reactions over the amount mere aides to Nigerian president earn.
The statement he released reads:
“Dear Mr. Peter Obi,Thank you again for petitioning the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Efcc against me. Please find attached the payslip of Bashir Ahmad after he was promoted to Special Assistant to the President by General Muhammadu Buhari. Now, compare my own payslip. Exactly the same amount of ₦1.043,176.88 monthly pay. Special Assistants and Senior Special Assistants are on the same pay grade! I know how frustrating it must be for you that you are not able to find any credible corruption allegation against me. But cheer up. Keep searching. You might hit pay dirt someday. Maybe I mistakenly took a government pencil home with me after serving Nigeria!”
