A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has praised President Bola Tinubu over the sack of service chiefs.
In a Twitter post, Omokri said the sack demonstrates that he is the Commander-in-Chief. He wrote:
Hurricane Tinubu strikes again. In one fell swoop, he has demonstrated that he is the Commander-in-Chief.
This is the type of courage that has been missing in Aso Rock. Now our military and security services will sit up.
What a man! Talk about hitting the ground running. No ambiguity about who is in charge. In three weeks, he has consigned Buhari’s eight years into the dustbin of history.
Well done! Bravo. No matter your shortcomings (and you do have them), no objective observer can deny that you have exceeded everybody’s expectations.
The only thing I will appeal to the President to do is to find a way to reflect the Southeast commensurately to their population, and not according to the votes they gave him, in his security architecture and government.
Inclusion will reduce agitation. That aside, let me add that this is the leadership that Awolowo would have given if Nigeria had given him the chance. I doff my heart to the President. But my support is still for Waziri Atiku!
