Former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Electronic Media, Reno Omokri has described President Muhammadu Buhari as a “ghost President.”
Omokri, made the claim while reacting to the failure of the President to preside over the weekly Federal Executive Council, FEC, meeting on Wednesday.
Buhari had yesterday failed to preside over the FEC meeting for the third consecutive time. However, he delegated his role to his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo.
But reacting to the situation, the former Presidential aide said it was hypocritical for a government that fights ghost workers to be headed by a “ghost President.”
The United States based Pastor advised Buhari to hand over power to his deputy if he can’t carry on.
In a series of tweets on his social media handle, Omokri wrote: “It is hypocritical for a govt that fights ghost workers to have a ghost President. If the President is sick, let him hand over to Osinbajo!
“If you thinks it’s harsh to ask President @MBuhari to hand over to Osinbajo ask him if he did not give the same advice to Yar’adua in 2010!
“On March 10, 2010, President @MBuhari called for impeachment of Yar’adua because his illness prevented him from performing his duties.
“For 3 weeks our President hasn’t attended FEC. For 3 weeks we only see him at Mosque. Would @MBuhari have tolerated this from Yaradua/GEJ
“Ghost President, with ghost achievements fighting ghost workers with an EFCC that goes after his ghost monies in apartments owned by ghosts.
“I urge any civil servant who is being queried or sacked for absenteeism to sue the FG. If President Buhari can work from home, why cant you?
“Hand over to Osinbajo! It doesn’t have to be permanent. Go take care of yourself. Aso Rock is a PRESIDENTIAL Villa not a retirement home!”
