Reno Omokiri Reacts As Supreme Court Rules Against APC In Zamfara

Former Presidential New Media aide Reno Omokri has accused the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari of plotting to scuttle democracy.

Naija News had reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the presidential election scheduled to hold today, February 16.

Reacting in a post on his Twitter handle, Omokri also accused the president of bullying the electoral body.

He wrote: “Any postponement of the election scheduled to hold tomorrow is a #CoupAgainstNigeria and a slap in the face of Nigerians, given that the government had enough time and money to prepare for the elections. If they postpone, don’t respond violently. Be patient to vote against them.

“Ever since the suspicious burning of highly guarded INEC offices a few days to the scheduled elections, I knew a #CoupAgainstNigeria was afoot. They want you to react violently, so they can do what they did to the Shiites to you and scuttle democracy. Be wise and remain peaceful.

“The Buhari regime may succeed in bullying INEC to postpone the election, but despite any #CoupAgainstNigeria, they can only postpone their rejection by the Nigerian people. They can’t stop it. We‘ve tolerated 97% versus 5% for 4 years. We can tolerate a few more days.

“Under no circumstances must we be violent. The power is in your PVC, not in their shenanigans or the guns and bullets at their beck and call. The way to frustrate any #CoupAgainstNigeria is to refuse to react as they expect. Give them the voting finger whenever the election holds

“Finally, I call in the INEC, Police, Army and all military and paramilitary forces to remember that your oath of allegiance is to Nigeria, not Buhari regime. REFUSE to obey any illegal order. Be loyal to Nigeria in the event of any #CoupAgainstNigeria.”
