Former aide to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has taken to social media to express disappointment over Nigerian youths.
In a fresh statement released on his Instagram page, the author noted that Nigerian youths always channel their energy in a wrong place, instead of tackling the main issue bordering the country.
This comes after some youths probably hardcore fans to the ongoing Big Brother Naija housemate, Pere, took to streets on early Monday morning to protest following BBNaija twist in yesterday’s eviction show.
SeniorNG recall that, on Sunday, September 26, the Reality Show served Pere and Angel fake prank eviction and instructed them to leave the house, while revealing that both housemates are to play a game and who ever loses will be evicted.
Hours after Biggie’s announcement, fans took to the streets to protest against the new twist in the reality TV show and the video is currently circulating on internet.
Reacting to the video, Reno Omokri has taken to his Instagram page expressing disappointment following the quick response from some youths, who took to the streets to protest, simply because Big Brother gave Pere a game to play.
Explaining further, Reno said that upon all that’s happening in the country, insecurity, inflation and so on, youths have not hit the streets to protest but because of BBNaija, they have taken to the streets to protest.
Finally, Reno hinted that Nigerians, perhaps deserve President Muhammadu Buhari.
His statement reads:
These Nigerians are not protesting because
the Naira is now worth less than the Zimbabwean dollar, or because insecurity has made life in Nigeria a living hell, or because of Buhari’s refusal to name Boko Haram’s sponsors, or because VAT is collected by the Federal Government from states that generate income and given to states that mostly just consume. They are protesting because they claim Big Brother cheated Pere. Now, you see why Nigeria is the way she is? Ask Nigerians to come out to protest for their rights and few
will come out, if any. Ask them to come out for a Wizkid concert, and people who can’t feed will miraculously acquire money and sell out the concert. Imagine this going on on a Monday, when they should be productive at work or their businesses. We love to give our energies to the trivial, not the vital. Nigerians, perhaps we do deserve Buhari!
