Former Special Adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on Electronic Media, Reno Omokri, has berated second republic lawmaker, Junaid Mohammed for saying should anything happen to President Muhammadu Buhari, the north will insist on being in power till 2027.
The lawmaker, had recently said, “If anything happens to Buhari the north will insist on being in power till 2027…..those who see Buhari as their representative and are not being treated justly are going to claim their own rights and the only way you are going to resolve the issue is that after Buhari’s administration, you have it zoned to the north for eight to 10 years.” read HERE
Reacting to Mohammed’s statement, the US-based Pastor said the former lawmaker should take the advice of Lagos Oba by jumping into the lagoon because all Nigerians are equal.
In a post on his FaceBook wall, Omokri wrote, “Recently, Nigerians woke up to a rude and not so subtle threat issued by one cantankerous fellow, Junaid Mohammed, who has an over bloated opinion of himself and the weight his words carry in Nigeria.
“Without deigning to repeat his repugnant and provocative threats, let me respond to Junaid Mohammed and any other person that thinks along those lines.
“First, I and those I represent pray for President Muhammadu Buhari’s recovery, but if what Junaidu Mohammed is contemplating should occur (and it is highly disappointing that Junaid should be contemplating such instead of praying for the president), then it is the Nigerian constitution that will dictate what will happen next and not Junaid, or Northern Nigeria or any other part of Nigeria for that matter.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no first class or second class citizen in Nigeria.
“No part or citizen of Nigeria needs permission from another part or citizen of Nigeria before they can lay claim to what has been freely given to them by the Nigerian Constitution which is the Grundnorm and basis for the existence of Nigeria.
“We are all equal. And if Junaidu Mohammed and those he speaks for do not like it, they should take the Oba of Lagos’s advise and jump into the lagoon. Nothing, I repeat nothing, must happen to Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
“His fate is in the hand of God and not in the hand of proud and presumptuous mortals like Junaid and those he speaks for!
“My advise to Junaid Mohammed is that he confine his busybody to praying for the President rather than pontificate about a post Buhari Nigeria when the President is very much alive.”
