He recently stated that he won’t condone any form of protest by any #Endsars protesters.
The return of #Endsars protest started today despite warning from top personalities in Nigeria like the Inspector General Of Police and the current youngest APC governor in Nigeria, Yahaya Bello.
How wonderful that the #Endsars protest was among the top trends on Twitter.
The Inspector General Of Police in Nigeria, Mohammed Adamu is the most senior police officer in the police service.
Well, no one can blame him for his decision, Nigerians all saw the atrocities committed the last time the #Endsars protest took place somewhere in October, speaking of the burning of properties, BRT Buses among many other calamities.
Despite the IGP’s caution against the protest, Nigerians have taken the most senior police officers words as vain words as they resumed the #Endsars protest with vigour and happiness, demanding Buhari and Buratai’s resignation(Is this demand not impossible?) and justice to the killings of innocent protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate.
After IGP Said He Won’t Tolerate Another Protest, Reno Omokri a former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan also an author and a lawyer, reacted to IGP’s warning on Twitter he tweeted If the Nigerian Army or Police dare kill any more peaceful, unarmed #EndSARS protesters, this time, it will be Generals #Buhari and Buratai that will end up “seeing double”.
Nigerians have been pushed to the wall and they have the right to protest against an inept government. See the screenshot of his tweet below;
The governor demanded the sum of N500 million in damages and an apology published in the newspaper.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has sued former media aide to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, human rights activist, Professor Chidi Odinkalu and other activists in a N1.5 billion defamation suit.

… following her damning revelations against Akpabio
Reno Omokri has warned against any form of attack on Joy Nunieh, a former Acting Managing Director of Interim Management Committee of the Niger Delta Development Commission, who recently made some damning revelations about the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio.
Addressing the press after she appeared before the Senate ad-hoc Committee investigating NDDC, Mrs. Nunieh recounted her ordeal at the hands of the Minister before she was removed as the NDDC MD.
Among other claims, she said “Nobody makes any payment in NDDC without Godswill Akpabio’s approval. When we first came, on the day of the inauguration, he said to me in the car, ‘Madam MD, if you don’t do what I say, the same pen with which I used to sign your paper is the same pen I’ll use to remove you.
Following her many revelations, Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media believes Nunieh’s revelations could put her life in danger.
In a tweet on Saturday, Omokri said, “Nothing must happen to the ex-Managing Director of the Niger Delta Development Corporation, Joy Nunieh, who has just made shocking allegations of corruption against @Senator_Akpabio, Festus @FKeyamo and Gen @MBuhari.
Reno Omokri, an ex-aide to former President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, has claimed that corruption has become official under President Muhammadu Buhari.
Omokri stated this while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics yesterday.
Although he admitted that mistakes were made in previous administrations, he insisted things have only become worse under this current government.
“When you compare this administration with former President Jonathan’s government or Yaradua’s government, yes, there was some corruption there; it’s a human government.
“But the difference between that government and this government is that under Jonathan, there was corruption, in this administration, corruption is official,” Omokri said.
Noble Reporters Media learnt that the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) has given Buhari 14 days, to instruct the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubakar Malami, and anti-corruption agencies to probe an alleged missing N300 billion.
The body based its demand on the audited report by the AGF in 2017.
While it’s a fact that the popular river Niger was discovered by Mungo Park, political critic cum author, Reno Omokri in a recent statement has stressed that Mungo Park didn’t discover the River Niger.
According to Reno Omokri, he stated that people were already living, fishing and swimming in River Niger before Mungo Park’s arrival.
He went on to say that a Black man showed Mungo Park where River Niger is.
Reno Omokri wrote on Twitter, “Mungo Park did NOT discover the River Niger. You can’t discover a river that people were already living in and fishing in and swimming in. If Mungo Park discoverer the River Niger, then what do we say about the Black man who showed him where it is?”
According to Wikipedia, Mungo Park was a Scottish explorer of West Africa. After an exploration of the upper Niger River around 1796, he wrote a popular and influential travel book titled Travels in the Interior Districts of Africa in which he theorized the Niger and Congo merged to become the same river.
A Nigerian Political critics and motivational author, Reno Omokri, drops a hot one at those who were agaist the Government of Ex-president Godluck Jonathan.
According To The Controversial Author, Reno Omokri, the vice president of Nigeria, adams oshiomhole, is reaping exactly what he had planted, Reno wrote,” Oshiomhole, you make me laugh. You and your dethroned NWC members say you may be going to court. Let me ask you one question:
Does General @MBuhari respect court judgments? Enjoy your Buhari and stop crying! Your chickens have come home to roost”
Nigerian Author and lawyer, Reno Omokri has taken to, twitter to advice people who suffer depression, and inferiority because some other persons have made it before them.
According to the former presidential aide, there is a right time for everyone so you shouldn’t feel like you are left out, in his words ” Your time will still come!
His tweet reads;
“If you ever cooked rice and beans in the same pot, you know rice cooks faster than beans. Yet, the beans is more nutritious. Dont feel inferior to others because they made it ahead of you. Your time will still come!”
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, has questioned the whereabouts of President Muhammadu Buhari and his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
Majority of Nigerians believe that their leaders have been missing in action while other countries’ Presidents go about giving daily updates to their citizens on the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
73-year-old Donald Trump, his vice, Mike Pence, (60) and top members of the US government have headed the country’s task force on COVID-19, providing daily information to citizens and making scientific suggestions to their scientists.
Here in Africa, Presidents of South Africa, Ghana, and other countries have been seen actively addressing and consoling their people in this traumatic period.
Reno Omokri wonders where Nigerian leaders have been, describing them as the crisis “we face.”
Ever since the dreaded disease made its way to Nigeria through an Italian on February 27, 2020, President Buhari has only address Nigerians twice in nationwide broadcasts many believed were recorded and aired via Nigeria Television Authority, NTA.
“Where are General @MBuhari and Pastor @ProfOsinbajo?,” the former presidential aide asked in a tweet on Saturday night.
“The more you look for them, the less you see of them.
“It is as if Nigeria has a government in absentia. Leaders should be more visible in a crisis. In our own case, our leaders are the crisis we face!”
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has once again raised questions on how the growing Coronavirus pandemic is being handled in Nigeria.
He slammed the Federal government for refusing to impose travel restrictions despite the Coronavirus pandemic.
The Health Minister, Osagie Ehanire, confirmed the third case of Coronavirus in Nigeria, and Reno in a post shared on his Instagram page asked why the borders are closed against rice smuggling and not Coronavirus
”How can you close your border for rice and open it for #CoronaVirus and have the audacity to call yourself a leader? If #COVID19 kills your citizens, who will eat the rice you are protecting? Are rice and fuel more important than human beings who will buy them?” he wrote
In a new post, Reno has described the former CBN boss as the educated version of President Muhammadu Buhari, who he described as a religious bigot and nepotistic individual.
Sanusi Lamido Sanusi is the educated version of General @MBuhari. He is as nepotistic and has the same level of religious bigotry as Buhari. Read of Sanusi’s involvement in the saga of 13 year old Ese Oruru’s abduction to Kano by Yunusa#BuhariTormentorhttps://t.co/jih4DsfZ50
Reno Omokri has once again queried the motive behind plans to invest $500m on the National Television Authority (NTA).
Recall that on Thursday, Reno queried the Senate over its approval of President Muhammadu Buhari’s request for $22.7b.
Reacting once again, the popular critic of the President queried why the same amount is budgeted for education and NTA.
He went on to query how $500m is being budgeted for an institution that is not worth $50m.
See His Tweet Below:
Of the $22.7 billion loan approved for General @MBuhari by the @NGRSenate, $500 million is for @NTANewsNow while education gets $500 million. How can you spend $500 million on NTA that isn’ worth $50 million, and only $500 million educating 110 million youths? #BuhariTormentor
Social media commentator, Reno Omokri has stated that side chicks look hotter than the main wives because they have not started living with the man.
He added that they look hotter because they see the men when have perfected their make-ups.
Speaking via a tweet he sent out on Monday, he further advised that it is wrong to leave a wife for a side chick because with time, the hotness of the side chick would disappear once marriage sets in.
Dear men, Side chicks look hotter than wives because you don’t live with them. You only see them when they perfect their makeup. Dont leave a wife for a hot side chick. Her hotness is a mirage that will disappear once you start living with her!

Reno Omokri, Femi Fani-Kayode and other Nigerians have reacted to an interview in which Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed said he’s not aware of the ‘Protection from Internet Falsehood and Manipulations Bill’ which is now known as the “Social Media Bill”.
In the interview in London, DW’s Tim Sebastian pointed out that the bill has some draconian provisions in which journalists can be imprisoned for publishing content.
In his defence when asked if he is against the bill or not, Lai Mohammed asked Tim who the author of the bill is. He added that he is not aware of the bill.
Tim Sebastian who wondered why a Minister of Information will not know if such bill exists, fired back by stating that the bill is causing an outcry internationally. Lai Mohammed however vehemently stated “there’s no such bill before the house, I can say that with relative authority”.
Nigerian Author and Lawyer, Reno Omokri has taken to micro-blogging website, Twitter, to share his thoughts about the topic – HARDWORK.
In his tweet, Reno disclosed that although being hardworking is not bad, it does not pay and it ages one before his/her time. Reno further added that SMARTWORK pays, not HARDWORK.
His tweet reads ;
HARD-WORK is not necessarily a virtue, though it‘s not bad. HARD-WORK doesn’t PAY. It KILLS! It ages you before your time. If HARD-WORK PAID everyone will want to be a labourer. What PAYS, is SMARTWORK. A SHARP ax cuts a TREE faster than a DULL one.
I read an actor’s write up about a poor, hardworking and honest man who treats his wife like a Queen. Not possible! If you are poor, hardworking and honest, you can treat your wife well. But even in Scripture, it takes MONEY to look after a Queen!
HARD-WORK is not necessarily a virtue, though it‘s not bad. HARD-WORK doesn’t PAY. It KILLS! It ages you before your time. If HARD-WORK PAID everyone will want to be a labourer. What PAYS, is SMARTWORK. A SHARP ax cuts a TREE faster than a DULL one#FreeLeahSharibu#RenosNuggets
Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has disclosed that the King James Bible which many Christians make use of, was not accurately written.
The clergyman in an article shared on social media opined that the King James Version is similar to a version of one of many sides of an argument.
Omokri further described people who say King James Version was good enough for the early church, as ignorant, adding that KJV was established in 1611, more than 1500 years after the ‘early church’.
He also said it is not funny that many people think that Peter, John, and Paul, among other Apostles, wrote the KJV.
He wrote, “One of the biggest mistake Christians make is to think that the King James Version of The Bible is an exact or evening equivalent translation of the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek Scriptures. Not true. Not true at all.
“The King James Version is similar to a version of one of many sides of an argument. When people argue, they tell their ‘own side’ of what transpired. As an independent and objective bystander, you will be foolish if you hear only one side of the argument and conclude based on that.
“Sadly, that is what many people do with the King James Version. And this has led to a situation where their faith is built on lies, half truths and inadvertent errors by the translators.
“There are actually people who have said, ‘If King James Version was good enough for the early church, it is good enough for me!”. Such is the ignorance of many so called Christians that they are unaware that the KJV was established in 1611, more than 1500 years after the ‘early church’. Many people you know, actually think that Peter, John and Paul, among with many of the Apostles, wrote the KJV. I am not joking.”
Omokri who said he had previously dealt with the issue at length, but he will be talking about it again because it takes several dose of medicament to cure some diseases.
“So let me give this another go,” he said.
“One of the Scriptural verses that the KJV got either deliberately or inadvertently wrong is Isaiah 45:11 which reads in that version as follows: “Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” Based on that, many genuine believers have been commanding God. Let me put it this way, it is actually stupid to command God. And the original Hebrew Scriptures never said such.
“The truth, which is clear if you read the original Hebrew, or even if you read the preceding and succeeding verses, is that God speaking through Isaiah was showing disappointment in people who were questioning His judgment. The preceding verse (Isaiah 45:10) says: “Woe to the one who says to a father, ‘What have you begotten?’ or to a mother, ‘What have you brought to b
“The truth, which is clear if you read the original Hebrew, or even if you read the preceding and succeeding verses, is that God speaking through Isaiah was showing disappointment in people who were questioning His judgment.
“The preceding verse (Isaiah 45:10) says: “Woe to the one who says to a father, ‘What have you begotten?’ or to a mother, ‘What have you brought to birth?’” The verse before that (Isaiah 45:9) says: “Does the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you making?’ Does your work say, ‘The potter has no hands’?” Now think. After giving out such warnings as was given in verses 9 and 10, why would God now ask His creations, you and I, to command Him about the work of His hands? The answer is that He did not.
“Almost every other translation gives the right translation to Isaiah 45:11. I will give four below and you can compare them with the KJV: “”This is what the LORD says– the Holy One of Israel, and its Maker: Concerning things to come, do you question me about my children, or give me orders about the work of my hands?”-NIV “Thus says the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and the one who formed him: “Ask me of things to come; will you command me concerning my children and the work of my hands?”-ESV “This is what the LORD says— the Holy One of Israel and your Creator: “Do you question what I do for my children? Do you give me orders about the work of my hands?” There are two verses in the King James Version which have always troubled me and made me question my faith as a youth. Those verses are 2 Kings 2:23-24 which read: “And he went up from thence unto Bethel: and as he was going up by the way, there came forth litt.”
Reno Omokri tweeted that money and women can separate twins and he used Peter and Paul Okoye as examples.
According to him, money and women are to blame for the separation of the twin brothers who once made up the music duo, P-Square.
He tweeted: “Money and women can separate even twins. No need to look too far. Think of PSquare. If you want your brotherhood and friendship to last, compartmentalise your life. Have boundaries between love and financial life separate and family and friendships.”
Social media activist and politician Reno Omokri has something for students who consider themselves to be a failure after failing an exam.
According to him, they are not, as examinations are not truly the best way to test for intelligence. He stated that exams are just means to test one’s memory and should not be used as a yardstick for success.
Exams are a test of memory, not a test of intelligence. Read to pass your exam but don’t think you are unintelligent because you fail. Dont think you are better than those who failed. You might actually end up working for a classmate who failed
But it appears as if some of his followers on Twitter have other opinions on the subject. A man identified as Austin believes exams are both a test of memory and of intelligence, as some examination questions are set to determine once analytical capacity.
I think exam is a test of both. If exams were just about memory, there wouldnt be that critical and analytical dimensions in exams. Sometimes, an examiner is testing your ability to be analytical or critical on an issue than your ability to just memorize…

Reno Omokri has shared photos of Deji Adeyanju being treated in a Dubai-based hospital.
Adeyanju suffered injuries after allegedly being beaten by hoodlums during a #FreedomRally in front of the National Human Rights Commission on Monday December 23rd.
”Happening Now: Former APC spokesman, Timi Frank, visiting Deji Adeyanju at the hospital where he is on admission in Dubai. This is not time for much talk. The situation is just sad. Very sad. Deji, you are the great Nigerian hero!?” Reno wrote
