2023: Nigeria Cannot Have A Known Drug Lord As Her President – Reno Omokri
Nigeria cannot have a known drug lord as her president in 2023, says Reno Omokri.
Glamtush reports that Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide has challenged the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu to a drug test ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
This online platform understands that Omokri made the call in a series of tweets on Wednesday in reaction to a report by Bloomberg on Tinubu, linking him with a drug case in the United States.
Bloomberg had shared an article titled “Graft Allegations Dog Nigeria’s Main Presidential Hopefuls”, centered around Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar and Tinubu.
According to the article, Tinubu, who was a former Governor of Lagos state, “fought a lawsuit in which the US accused him of laundering proceeds of heroin trafficking and eventually reached a settlement.”
Reacting to the article, Omokri, who is a known supporter of Atiku, tweeted, “All Presidential candidates should be made to take drug tests administered by the @NDLEA_Nigeria to determine present and p ast drug use. We can’t have a KNOWN DRUG LORD as our President. Heroin is more damaging than cocaine. Anybody connected to it belongs in JAIL.
“I challenge @officialABAT, if you were not involved in a heroin drug ring in the United States in 1991-1993, then take me to court. Nigeria cannot have a KNOWN DRUG LORD as her President. God forbid. I also challenge Tinubu to take a drug test with @NDLEA_Nigeria
“We don’t want a Pablo Escobar as our President come 2023. We don’t need a drug cartel boss turning Aso Rock into a drug den. We don’t want to be wondering whether our President has sniffed something before he ludicrously addressing us on taxing Agbado and cassava!
“We must know who, amongst those angling to occupy Aso Rock, has a past history with a drug cartel. Mba, mba, mba! The office of the President of Nigeria is too powerful to be entrusted to a man with known drug connections. Nigeria will not become Colombia. Tufiakwa!”
