Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has berated the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, over his comments during a press conference.
Recall that Obi, speaking at the World Press Conference in Abuja on Wednesday, said Nigerians are now seen all over the world as fraudsters, certificate forgers and identity thieves because of what Tinubu has allegedly done.
The LP flagbearer called on the President to tell the nation his true name, the school he attended, where he served and the certificate he obtained from the Chicago State University (CSU).
The former Governor of Anambra State also advised President Tinubu to provide Nigerians and the entire world with the necessary information about him once and now.
Reacting in a post via his X (formerly Twitter) handle on Wednesday, Omokri described Obi as a pathetic desperado for asking President Tinubu to reveal his true identity to Nigerians.
He also blasted the LP flagbearer for saying that the world now views Nigerians as fraudsters because of the false allegations that Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University.
Omokri asserted the corruption allegation against Obi by Pandora Newspaper did not give Nigeria a bad name, but it is the alleged certificate forgery of the president that will cause embarrassment.
The former presidential aide added that the former Anambra governor would never be the President of Nigeria.
He wrote: “Peter Obi is just a pathetic desperado. So, because of false allegations that President Bola Tinubu did not attend Chicago State University, the world now views Nigerians as fraudsters? Really? So, when President Obama faced false allegations of not being born in America, the world looked at all Americans as fraudsters?
“Bola Tinubu, a male, was admitted, attended and graduated from Chicago State University. I went there and verified it. It is true. Deal with it.
“You made a false allegation and want to blame the person you lied against? Your proven Pandora corruption did not give Nigeria a bad name, but this does?
“You will NEVER be President of Nigeria, Peter Obi!”
