It creates imbalance – Omokri kicks against Akpabio’s emergence as Senate President



Former Presidential aide Reno Omokri has reacted to the election of Senator Godswill Akpabio as the Senate President of the 10th Senate.


Akpabio emerged winner of the keenly contested election held on Tuesday.


Reacting, Omokri, in a tweet via his Twitter handle, claimed that Akpbabio’s election created an imbalance in the government in favour of Southern Nigeria.


He tweeted, “In my opinion, it is wrong for the 10th Senate to have elected any Southerner as Senate President. It creates an imbalance in the government in favour of Southern Nigeria.


“The head of the executive, President Tinubu, is from the Southwest. The head of the judiciary, Justice Ariwoola, is also from the Southwest. Now, the head of the legislature, Akpabio, is from the South-South.


“If you were a Northerner, how would you feel? Yes, Buhari did it. And we complained. We were not happy. If we keep quiet now, are we not as hypocritical as those who justified Buhari’s Northernisation policy?”.

  1. For once in a long while, you’ve made sense. I hope you continue like this

  2. All the posts occupied by the north naturally moved to the south and vice versa

  3. Nonsense Omokiri always writing nonsense to seek for relevance.

  4. Omokri around of applause to you. But you could have speak early b/4. They elect their presiding officers. Nevertheless, May Almighty protect you from your evil wishers. Ameen

  5. Since Bihari did it and Notherners saw nothing wrong with that. Let it continue . Infact the speaker of the HR should have gone to South as well. Mad people everywhere
