Reno Omokri, the former media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for the rise in cases of Coronavirus in Nigeria.
He disclosed that the failure of the president to take the advice of Atiku Abubakar, a former vice president, is the reason for the increased figure every day.
He made this claim while reacting to a report that Mr Buhari described the current situation as frightening and appealed to Nigerians to adhere to the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Health to stay safe from the disease.
The president’s concerns gained strength from reports that Lagos, is running out of beds for patients of the disease, many of who are now being turned back at isolation and treatment centres in the state.
In reaction to this, Mr Omokri tweeted: “Dear General @MBuhari, You are shedding crocodile tears. You caused the spread of #COVID19 in Nigeria by refusing to close Nigeria’s airspace in February, despite @Atiku asking you, because your daughter and Abba Kyari were abroad!”
