Reno Omokri, a Nigerian politician and socio-political commentator, has slammed the Nigerian Airforce for allowing the All Progressives Congress’ (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to land in the presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport on Sunday.
Reno alleged that such gesture proves that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government is prepared to use its federal might to rig the forthcoming presidential elections in Tinubu’s favour.
“Tinubu is a citizen like any other. The Presidential wings of Nigeria’s airports are for the use of the President, and those representing the FG. Tinubu does not fall into that category. The Nigerian Airforce must not allow itself to become Tinubu and APC’s poodle!” Reno Omokri fumed.
On Twitter, he added: “Why would the Nigerian Airforce allow Bola Tinubu land in the Presidential wing of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport? That is wrong, almost to the point of treason! It proves that the Buhari government is prepared to use federal might to rig him into power!
“Allowing Tinubu land in the Presidential wing is unethical. The man is not the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed forces. Presidents Obasanjo, Yar’adua and Jonathan never did that. This reduces our airforce in the estimation of right thinking members of the public!
“In South Africa, heads rolled when the Gupta family landed in the Presidential wing of the Waterkloof airport. It almost brought down Zuma’s government. Is Nigeria a Banana Republic that Tinubu will just land in our Presidential wing and the airforce allows it?”
