‘Why is Southern Nigeria a no go area for Buhari?’ – Omokri queries

Reno Omokri, former presidential aide and social commentator, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of neglecting the Southern part of the country.

Omokri berated Buhari for not visiting the Southern part of Nigeria since he won his re-election in 2019.

In a tweet, the former presidential aide wondered why Buhari has refused to visit the Southern part of the country.

He lamented the president’s constant shuttles between Nigeria and London while ignoring the Southern part of the country.

“Since he was sworn in for a second term, had General @MBuhari visited Southern Nigeria?

“Not to my knowledge. Correct me if I’m wrong.

“He shuttles between London and Northern Nigeria. Why is Southern Nigeria a no go area for Buhari? Is this how to govern a nation?,” Omokri tweeted.

The Buhari-led government has been accused of marginalizing the southern region in terms of appointments and federal projects, leading to increased clamour for secession.

After sweeping to power in 2015 with a promise to fight corruption, the Buhari regime has been dogged by nepotism, clannishness and chronic corruption that has left Africa’s most populous nation on the brink.

The president recently gave a shoot-at-sight order to security operatives to quell the rising separatist pressures in the south.

But critics warn the move will stir greater division in a country greatly in need of healing.
