“Scavengers Who Litter Govt Offices” – Dele Momodu Drags Buhari’s Aide On Twitter



Media mogul and former presidential candidate, Dele Momodu has hit out at presidential media aide, Lauretta Onochie, labelling her as a scavenger in government office.

He went ahead to allege that Onochie is one of those given official titles for decoration without clear cut duties or access to the President.

Momodu on Friday afternoon also rejected the tag of a government boot licker slammed on him by Onochie after he submitted that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed Nigerians.

Naija News gathered the saga started after Onochie took to her Twitter page to suggest that the Ovation publisher is angry with the Buhari government because he’s not been getting the usual ‘cash for photos’ during the current administration.

She also advised Momodu to try other things to make money by diversifying.

See the tweet.

However, Momodu also responded in a series of tweets, going ahead to describe Lauretta as a troublesome lady, and going down memory lane to reveal that he spent his legitimate money for Buhari’s campaign and as a Nigerian, he has a right to speak on issues.

Highlighting that others have also expressed the same views about the disappointment of Nigerians in the Buhari administration, Momodu said he won’t be blackmailed by Onochie.

Speaking further, Momodu noted that he has legitimate streams of income and is not dependent on government handouts to survive.

See the statement: “My attention has just been drawn to a reaction to one of my tweets from a troublesome lady called Lauretta, one of those scavengers who litter government offices in Nigeria who are given big official titles for decoration but actually have no access to their so-called bosses.

Lauretta’s grouse is that I said I considered Buhari’s government a failure. Have I said anything new? From Arewa, to Igbo, to Yoruba groups, everyone has expressed same sentiments & what I would have expected was a simple list of Buhari’s achievements but she attacked my person.”

“She went their usual route of cheap blackmail that “Buhari has failed because he’s not paying…” us cash. Lauretta picked on a wrong customer once again. When a child buys a pair of shoes for his one-legged Dad, he should be ready to hear some true tales. I’m not a govt jobber!!”

Since she’s never done any business in her life, she assumes we are all scavengers:
1. Your boss Buhari was my colleague in 2011 when we were both Presidential candidates

2. I spent my hard-earned money on Buhari’s campaign without asking for anything. Pls, where were you?

3. I told President Buhari in 2015 that I will write my opinion of him regularly the way I did to President Jonathan & he said why not. So who’s Lauretta to say I can’t express myself freely? I know your third rate job makes you important. Bashir Ahmad and Tolu Ogunlesi are ahead.”

“Lauretta advised me to diversify. You must have been busy looking for appointments when I expanded into public relations, television, social media, etc. If you had your business, the National Assembly wouldn’t have disgraced you!! Let me stop here for now… I have your time.”

Meanwhile, the leader of INRI Evangelical spiritual church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has said Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State cannot be ousted from office.

Naija News reports that the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja will deliver judgement in the certificate forgery case filed against Obaseki by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and a chieftain of the party, Edobor Williams, on Saturday.

The presiding judge, Justice Ahmed Mohammed fixed Saturday after lawyers to both parties adopted their final written addresses.

Speaking during his church crossover service, Primate Ayodele noted that Obaseki is God’s project, adding that no matter what God will make him come out victorious in his court battle.
