“I won’t follow Jonathan to APC, my stomach does not control my mouth” — Reno Omokri vows

Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri has vowed that he won’t go with ex-President Goodluck Jonathan to join the ruling APC if he does.


Recall that yesterday Thursday September 16, former Aviation minister Femi Fani-Kayode decamped to the APC from the PDP and lots of reactions have trailed his defection … with many people saying, it is because of FFK’s lack of money.

It appears it is in this light, that Reno Omokri made this comment while responding to a question asked by Wazobia FM host and actor, Yaw.

“I am not FFK. I urge you, your radio station, and the general Nigerian public not to be emotionally agitated,” he wrote on social media.

“Don’t be excitable. Be rational. Put things into proper perspective. Study my past. Am I or am I not a stable person? You and the public should be able to gauge my future conduct from my past conduct. Let me make this clear: Former President Jonathan will not join the APC.And even if he does, I will NOT go with him. But he won’t.”

“Fani-Kayode’s behaviour is not representative of my behaviour. My late father was an Appeal Court Justice. Investigate him. He was known for being an honest judge. I was a Presidential spokesman for four years. Nobody has even accused me of stealing a pin. Betrayal, grovelling and instability are not in my DNA. So what will make me vulnerable to APC? My pedigree is too important to me to soil. I must pass it unblemished to my children as it was passed on, unblemished, to me.”

“My stomach does not control my mouth. What I say, and how I behave, are dictated by conscience, not by appetite!,” Omokri added.
