Reno Omokri, former special assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on new media, has yet again called to question the anti-graft war of the current administration.

Reacting to the detention of Reuben Abati, Jonathan spokesman, by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Omokri wondered why Amaechi was appointed a minister despite allegations leveled against him.

Omokri took to social media to express his displeasure.

“Reuben Abati allegedly got ₦50 million from Dasuki and goes to jail. Rotimi Amaechi admittedly spends $500k (₦235 million at today’s rate) on a one day dinner for Soyinka and becomes a minister! Welcome to the new Nigeria!” he wrote.

    Comparing apples and oranges here Reno. Amaechi should be subjected to investigation if petitions are pending against him. He ‘spent’ that sum of money with due approval from the state assembly. Abati is in detention for collecting money and not meeting his bail conditions. The court process should be employed to seek his freedom.

      “Due approval from the State Assembly” you say. Unbelievable! Who is the State Assembly? $500K to host a visitor. I guess you know what happened to that money. Just passing! Did Dasuki steal the money? He got the money through due approval. God help us all.

      Sometimes its just better to keep quiet if you have nothing serious to say. Its more dignifying, my brother.
