Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has has called out the Economic Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for the possibility of being partial if the anti-graft agency fails to question any APC member who buy the party’s presidential ticket which is currently sold at ₦100m.
Pastor Reno made this call on Wednesday, April 20, 2022, after the ruling party, APC, announced that its presidential nomination form has been pegged at ₦100 million while that of the governors would go for ₦50 million, and so on.
Reacting to the news, the former presidential aide took to his IG page to note that the anti-graft agency is biased if they fail to invite any government official who pays ₦100m for the presidential form, because their monthly salary wouldn’t be enough to pay for it.
Reno reminded the EFCC that they invited Obi Cubana for questioning, after he spent millions of Naira to bury his mother, so they should not turn a blind eye to any government official to pays such huge amount.
Pastor Omokri also emphasized in a post he shared on his IG page, that no group will agree the contribute money and buy the presidential form for any candidate on charity basis. He wrote on his page saying;
Let us look at this matter objectively. The EFCC saw a multi millionaire private businessman called Obi Cubana spending millions during his mother’s burial, and they invited him for questioning. If EFCC don’t invite any APC government official that pays the ₦100 million APC Presidential nomination for questioning, then they are biased.
How can a private multi millionaire with known businesses be a suspect in EFCC’s eye, but an APC government official earning ₦12 million per annum buying a ₦100 million Presidential nomination form is not a suspect. Please someone explain this logic!
