He was acting for his political godfathers to see his loyalty – Reno Omokri slams Desmond Elliot, tells his followers on IG to unfollow him

Published

Former Presidential spokesperson, Reno Omokri has also taken a swipe at Desmond Elliot over his comment on the negative impact of social media following the violence that erupted in Lagos.

Recall that in a video which captured Desmond Elliot’s submission at the House of Assembly, he was heard calling on the speaker of the Lagos State House of Assembly to “address certain things” like “the Nigerian youth, the social media, the social influencers.”

Reno Omokri who reacted to the video which has now been made public, alleged that the actor turned politician was acting for his political godfathers to see his loyalty. The former presidential spokesperson noted that Nigeria has changed and the power has shifted to the people.

He also called on all those following Desmond Elliot on Instagram, to unfollow him.

He wrote;

Desmond Elliott was acting for his political godfathers to see his loyalty. He is ambitious. He does not believe what he said. He believed he was writing a promotion exam. And he felt that the person that would grade his paper is Bola Tinubu. But Nigeria has changed. Power has shifted to the people. Even Bola Tinubu himself can’t recover from the effects of the last two weeks.

Desmond Elliot expects someone who can’t save himself to save him. Alas, he unwisely chose to be the proverbial fly that followed the corpse into the grave. Tinubu is now a political corpse. He once had the Midas Touch. But now, all that Tinubu has left is the Leprous Touch! Desmond incurred the wrath of forces more powerful than his godfathers, and they may sacrifice him to appease that force

The man @DesmondElliot has 1.5 million followers on Instagram. If in 1 hour’s time, he still has 1.5 million followers, then I will know and accept that everything that he said about Nigeria’s youth is true, because only a fool follows a person that has nothing but disdain for them. Nigeria’s youth must show that government must be afraid of them and one way to do this is by showing that irresponsible speech and action has consequences!

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has reacted after the United States rejected her as the consensus candidate for appointment as new Director-General of the World Trade Organization.

Okonjo-Iweala was slated to be the new WTO Director-General. She had won the support from the vast majority of member states, including the EU, Japan and China. However the United States representative at World Trade Organization took to the floor to insist that South Korea’s candidate remained a contender, and that Washington will not recognise Okonjo-Iweala as the consensus candidate for appointment as director-general.

As a result, the General Counsel postponed its announcement of the new Director-General until a further meeting, which is scheduled for 9 November; after the US presidential elections.

Speaking one day after, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala tweeted: “Happy for the success & continued progress of our @wto DG bid.

“Very humbled to be declared the candidate with the largest, broadest support among members & most likely to attract consensus. We move on to the next step on Nov 9, despite hiccups. We’re keeping the positivity going!”
