Author and former aide to President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has vowed that he will never join the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC.
Omokri, an ardent critic of President Muhammadu Buhari – who pride himself as #BuhariTormentor – said people should stop comparing him to former minister of aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, who recently decamped to APC from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Recall that Chief Fani-Kayode, like Omokri, was once an ardent critic of President Buhari and he has on different occasion said he would rather die than to join APC, the party which gave Mr. Buhari the platform to become the Nigeria’s President.
However, the former minister recently made a U-turn and joined the party which he had criticized and called printable names. Following Fani-Kayode’s decision, Nigerians has opined that even Reno Omokri might later join the APC.
Reacting to people’s comparison and opinion, Reno Omokri – who was among the Nigerians that staged the #HARASSBUHARIOUTOFNEWYORK – an anti-Buhari protest in New York as the President addressed the 76th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, (UNGA) – said his principles, not his stomach dictates his actions.
He said; “I am not Femi Fani-Kayode. My principles, not my stomach, dictate my actions. I proved it today again. For those comparing, read my lips, I will NEVER join the APC. Don’t judge me by FFK’s actions. Judge me by my past. Loyalty and stability are my past!
