Don’t reveal private details about Tinubu’s health – Omokri tells ex allies

5 Min Read

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has urged fresh decampees from the All Progressives Congressives (APC) to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to reveal private details about APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s health.

Omokri made the assertion in a Facebook post on Monday.

Omokri, who is a staunch supporter of PDP presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, said this in apparent reaction to remarks by Hajia Naja’atu Mohammed.

Naja’atu Mohammed speaks on Tinubu’s health

Mohammed visited Atiku on Sunday, less than 72 hours after resigning as the Director of Civil Society Directorate in the APC Presidential Campaign Council and dumping the APC.

Although she earlier declared that she was quitting partisan politics, the activist pledged her allegiance to Atiku during the Sunday visit, it was learnt.

In an exclusive interview with The Whistler, Mohammed claimed that Tinubu’s health was so bad that he could not hold a teacup unaided.

“Asiwaju that I sat with for two hours, he slept most of the time, it was Bisi Akande that I was really talking to. Most importantly he is not only physically unfit, he is mentally unfit, whether we want it or not, this is the truth. It’s not that I hate him, I respect him because I have heard of one or two people that he assisted which is good.

“But when you talk of leadership of over two hundred million people you know that if you remove tribal sentiments, you know that he is incapable, those that will rule are those around him. This is the reality. He is mentally deranged – I said it!

“I sat with him for two hours in London, when you talk of green, he will give you an answer of red, he can’t even decipher, he has very serious dementia, I believe he has Alzheimer’s because he cannot even hold a cup of tea.

“If you remove tribal sentiment, if you remove the Lagos/Ibadan press, if Tinubu were not a Yoruba man, he will not dare contest election because they will crucify him, but people are all there to defend him because he is Yoruba, it’s egbe omo Oduduwa over everything else.

“I was in the campaign for Yola, and we had to beg them to take the mic from him, everything about Tinubu is based on lies. Imagine he is an Hausa man, will he contest elections with all these gbese on top of him? In this campaign nobody should talk of corruption because they are corruption personified,” Mohammed was quoted to have said.

Omokri reacts

In an apparent reaction, Omokri, who is a PDP chieftain, said it was not right for decampees to the party from APC to reveal information they learnt due to the relationship of trust Tinubu had with them.

He said, “I encourage those who have joined our party from the APC not to reveal private details about Tinubu’s health that they learnt due to the relationship of trust he had with them.

“It is not right. And a person who betrays the trust of others will one day also betray yours. Help us defeat him fairly. Give us strategies. Bring in your loyalists. Defeat them on an intellectual level. But if anybody has trusted you and revealed details about himself to you, don’t turn around and use it against them. It is not honourable. Tinubu is a known drug lord. That is enough for Nigeria to reject him: let us focus on that as our core message on our main opponent. Not what he might have told you in confidence.
