The popular US based Author and public influencer Reno Omokri took to his verified tweeter account on 28th April, 2020 to counter the live broadcast by President Buhari. He wrote;

General @MBuhari’s speech was not live. It was recorded. What is the president afraid of? Why cant he have a live briefing and take questions from journalists? He just reads what is handed to him. #CoronaVirus response requires a dialogue, not a monologue. And then he went ahead and called it empty broadcast.

So, today he confirmed his allegation from the interview Buhari’s media adviser, Femi Adeshina had with Tvc News:

Reno tweeted below

In an interview with @TVCnewsng, General @MBuhari’s anodyne spokesman, @FemAdesina said “I signed on the final copy before the broadcast was recorded.”

This vindicates my tweet that Buhari’s broadcast was recorded, not live!


Coronavirus in Nigeria: Buhari’s chief of staff Abba Kyari dies of coronavirus.

The chief of staff to the Nigerian president Abba Kyari is dead, presidential


Late Abba Kyari,

spokesmen Femi Adesina said on Saturday morning.

“Funeral arrangements to be announced soon,” Adesina said.

Garba Shehu, the special assistant on media and publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, said Kyari died on Friday.

Kyari was suspected to have contracted the novel coronavirus when he visited Germany in early March multiple sources said. The presidency did not deny or confirm the rumours at the time.

It was only after his death that Shehu confirmed that Kyari had died of coronavirus.

“The deceased had tested positive to the ravaging COVID-19, and had been receiving treatment,” Shehu said.

He was Buhari’s closest person in the cabinet. In fact, Buhari, while inaugurating his ministers in August, ordered them to make requests for meetings with him through his now-late chief of staff.

Multiple media reports said the president was also tested for the virus but his test came out negative. A number of top Nigerian politicians, some of whom met Kyari after his return from Germany, also took the test.

It seems Nigerians are happy about this. Leave your comments below.


A Nigerian Governor, David Umahi Approves Church Service on Easter Sunday.

undefinedThe Nigerian Governor, David Umahi, Governor of one of the South Eastern Nigeria, Ebonyi State has given the go ahead for church services to be held on Easter Sunday between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.

The state government had restricted church worships and other social gatherings as precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus in the state.

The Senior Special Assistant on Religion and Welfare Matters to the Governor, Rev.Fr Abraham Nwali, who disclosed this in a statement, urged worshippers to comply with the government’s directive on the matter.

Nwali is also the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the state.

He said “They must observe sanitary laws which include the usage of sanitisers and hand-washing.

“Every church must conclude activities on or before 12:00 p.m. and worshippers should return to their various homes immediately.”

He implored worshipers not to stay beyond the stipulated time in their churches as defaulters would be made to face the wrath of the law.

“Let us use this window of grace to celebrate Jesus while remaining law-abiding,” Nwali added. (NAN)

Notwithstanding the pandemic, he still recognized the gathering of the brethen. Kudos to Governor David Umahi.
