Former presidential media aide and social commentator Reno Omokri has a message for President Muhammadu Buhari over his offer to help Ghana fight corruption. President Buhari during Ghana’s Independence Day Anniversary ceremony, offered to assist the country end corruption.
But Reno Omokri, in a series of tweets on Wednesday, wondered how Nigeria could help Ghana in this case when international ratings show the former Gold Coast is less corrupt than the most populated black nation in the world. In one of Reno’s tweet he said Buhari should be in a retirement home, not a Presidential Villa.
Reno Omokri wrote;
”That’s how Buhari disgraced Nigeria after Munich Shooting by offering to help Germany fight terror. Imagine Nigeria rated the world’s 4th most terrorized nation, wanting to help one of the least terrorised nations. PMB should be in a retirement home, not a Presidential Villa.,”
“Ghana is at 81 on this year’s Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, while Nigeria is at 148. My question to President Buhari is this: how can you help a nation that is less corrupt than yours to fight corruption? It’s like a demon offering to deliver a pastor!” he tweeted.
On Tuesday, during Ghana’s Independence Day Anniversary ceremony during President Buhari’ speech he said;
”Your Excellency can be assured that you have a good partner in me as I look forward to any form of collaboration between Nigeria and Ghana in tackling the menace of endemic corruption,” Buhari said at the occasion.
“From Nigeria, I have watched closely your achievements, ranging from your ingenious approach to creating jobs for the teeming youths through various initiatives, including the repositioning of agriculture for modern farming, ‘Farming for Jobs and Food’, Senior High School (SHS) free education, One-District-One-Factory, and One-Village-One-Dam as well as the improvement being recorded in the Republic’s macroeconomic indicators.”
