Reno Omokri Is A ‘joke’, Struggling For Relevance – By Adefemiwa Oluwole

I never saw this coming, that someday Reno Omokri will get into a competition with Nigerian comedians just to make a joke. But in his case, he is just down right boring. He wouldn’t get a grin from Nigerians speak less, a smile.

Just when you thought Reno cannot hit a new low, he digs the ground and goes for it, there is no stopping him in the abyss.

Asserting that President Buhari’s son, Yusuf, has more guards than Dapchi schoolgirls is lame, colourless and ludicrous.

Have Reno Omokri ever heard of Google? I doubt it because if he has he wouldn’t launder his stupidity and ignorance in public saying things that a four-year old should know.

One would think, Reno who once worked at the Presidency will know these little things, instead he goes public exuding a high level of ignorance and a nauseating sense of political blindness. I understand that Reno is pained that he is not the son of the president but it is unfair to take it out on Yusuf.

World over, it is known that the President, Vice President and even close family members have Secret Service agents watching and protecting them.

They are sometimes referred to as the ‘First Family’ and their security is of immense importance to the country.

But that is BREAKING NEWS to Reno. For a second, one would like to know what he did when he worked in the Presidency? Was he just galivanting around the building wondering what wonderful work of art it was, or was is office restricted to his Twitter account alone?

He should have asked questions if he needed clarification rather portray Nigerians as ignorant people, given that people across the globe could be reading his hogwash and wondering are Nigerians still in medieval times?

If Reno had taken some minutes to check up the mandate of Nigeria’s State Security Service, he would have saved all of us this embarrassment.

Anyways, I have taken the pains to do that job for him. According to the Wikipedia page of the Nigerian State Security Service, “The mission of the SSS is to protect and defend the Federal Republic of Nigeria against domestic threats, to uphold and enforce the criminal laws of Nigeria, and to provide leadership and criminal justice services to both federal and state law-enforcement organs. The SSS is also charged with the protection of the PresidentVice PresidentSenate PresidentSpeaker of the House of RepresentativesState Governors, their immediate families, other high ranking government officials, past presidents and their spouses, certain candidates for the offices of President and Vice President, and visiting foreign heads of state and government. The SSS has constantly adapted to various roles necessitated by evolving security threats in Nigeria including counter-terrorism and counter-insurgent.”

There you go, Reno. A little research could have been helpful being lazy would only cause you to make wrong assertions and accusations unless you have deliberating come up with one of your pranks again.

Thank your stars that the Nigerian Cybercrime Act has been taken with a pinch of salt, else you would be having conversations with some stern-looking Nigerians behind bars.
