After Lauretta’s Attack, Omokri Accuses Buhari Of Employing ‘Prostitute’ As Aide
An aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of employing “a woman very popularly known for her loose sexual morals as a media aide”.
He made the accusation in reaction to claims that he brought Cambridge Analytica to Nigeria.
The Special Adviser to President Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, had said, “FFK Vs. Reno Omokri – Round 1. May our enemies dance naked in the Market place in our presence. But we will not be distracted from your pre election sins with Cambridge Analytica. This is just the beginning. God bless Nigeria”.
Omokri, in his response had said that the Buhari government was using a prostitute to “rake up mud” against him, adding that neither him, nor his former employer, Joe Trippi and Associates were involved in Cambridge analytica.
In a statement he made on Friday, Omokri said: “It has been brought to my attention that a woman of easy virtue, currently working as a mudslinger for Buhari has accused me, Reno Omokri, of bringing Cambridge Analytica to Nigeria. This is false.
“I have exposed the lies of this administration and they are desperate to find a crime to rope me into. They have used the EFCC to scrutinize my Nigerian accounts and found I did not steal. Now they have come up with this cock and bull story.
“I challenge this administration to come up with even one shred of evidence to support their false allegations and innuendoes. I know they cannot because none exists.
“It is no surprise though. An administration that can procure a fake award allegedly from a revered family like the Martin Luther King Junior family is capable of anything.
“An administration that can bring back Maina, reinstate him and give him double promotion and then send their Attorney General of the Federation to court to block a Senate probe into how Maina was smuggled back into the civil service can lie and damage the reputation of its critics.
“Yes, it is true that I worked as a Vice President of Joe Trippi and Associates before becoming one of President Jonathan’s spokesmen, but neither myself nor Trippi and Associates is linked to Cambridge Analytica.
“But talking of linkages, by employing a woman very popularly known for her loose sexual morals as a media aide, President Buhari has shown that he is prepared to go to the gutter in order to rake up mud.”
