A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has bashed the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, over his attack on former President Olusegun Obasanjo.

Speaking with Aso Rock correspondents on Wednesday, Shehu described Obasanjo as “confused” over his support for the 2019 presidential ambition of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

It is well documented that Obasanjo had vowed never to support Atiku’s bid for any political office, going as far as saying that God would never forgive him should he willingly do so.

Shehu said, “Former President Obasanjo denounces one person today and supports that same person the next day.

“When it pleases him, he brings God into the matter and uses that as his excuse for whatever position he has chosen.’’

He added, “We have learnt not to take his utterances seriously anymore.

“We know that the slightest wind can make him change his mind again.

“After all, this is the same man who publicly tore his party registration card barely four years ago, and he now claims to be backing the same party.’’

But taking to his verified Twitter handle, Omokri said Shehu was biting the fingers that fed him, as Obasanjo appointed him as a media aide during his tenure in 2003.

Omokri, a US-based pastor, said he had read the Quran and Shehu’s “insult” on Obasanjo, whom he had worked for in the past, was against the teaching of the Holy Book.

He said, “I am ashamed for the presidency over its latest statement insulting ex President Obasanjo.

“Even worse that the statement is signed by Garba Shehu, a man Obasanjo appointed as SA Media in 2003.

“Muhammadu Buhari, your time will come. The AGIP Garba is known for biting fingers that fed him.”

Omokri added, “Dear Garba Shehu, you have no principles. I have read The Al-Quran. It forbids what you are doing.

“Obasanjo appointed you SA Media in 2003. True Muslims, will never insult a man who God once used to bless them. Only a munāfiq whose belly is his god behaves as you do. AGIP like you!”
