A former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has criticized the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, for asking Nigerians to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari.
Omokri called Tinubu a hypocrite over his remarks.
He was reacting to former Governor of Lagos’ Salah message, where he urged Nigerians to put aside their political differences and pray for the President.
Tinubu had said Nigerians should pray that God gives Buhari strength and wisdom to protect Nigerians.
Reacting, Omokri wondered why Tinubu never asked Nigerians to pray for Jonathan while he was in power.
In a tweet, the former presidential aide wrote: “In a statement today, Bola @AsiwajuTinubu asked Nigerians to ‘put politics aside’ and pray for General @MBuhari.
“Tinubu is a hypocrite. Did he put politics aside to pray for then President @GEJonathan?
“Instead, both Tinubu and Buhari asked Jonathan to resign!”
