Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has knocked former minister of education, Oby Ezekwesili, after she faulted the demolition of some distressed buildings in Alaba International Market by the Lagos State Government.
Ezekwesili had claimed that the action might have been carried out by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as vengeance against Igbo people who didn’t vote for him in the last election.
Reacting, Omokri revealed that Ezekwesili is always quick to react to incidents that occur in other regions while turning a blind eye when the same happens in her own region.
He tweeted, “IPOby Ezekwesili, remove your microfocus from Lagos and direct it to Anambra. Buildings are currently being marked for demolition in Anambra, and you were silent, only to roar when Lagos demolished structurally defective buildings whose owners were warned since 2016 to reinforce them or be demolished.
“This is the same Oby that danced naked in the streets when Deborah Samuel was burnt to death, but has remained silent till today after a pregnant Northerner from Adamawa, Harira Jubril, was killed by unknown gunmen in broad daylight, with her four underaged daughters, Fatima, 9; Khadijah, 7; Hadiza, 5; and Zaituna, 2.
“This is the same Oby that has also not condemned the killing of US embassy personnel by Unknown Gunmen in her state and close to her local government on Tuesday, May 16, 2023.
“The same Oby that rolled on the floor of Aso Rock over #BringBackOurGirls. Yet, she never condemned the killing of Ahmed Gulak in the Southeast on May 31, 2021. She has never spoken up or condemned the massacre of our soldiers, police and paramilitary men and women by IPOB, ESN, and Unknown Gunmen.
“What is tolerated in Lagos won’t be tolerated anywhere else in Nigeria, including Anambra, where Oby Ezekwesili, who is now scandalising Yorubas and the Lagos State Government, comes from.
“Oby will always cover anything that happens in the Southeast and blow out of proportion things that occur elsewhere. Just focus on your career as an IPOB apologist and stop gaslighting Lagosians.”
