- Omokri releases a video protesting against the removal of Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from the Nigerian education curriculum
- The former presidential aide faults Pastor Tunde Bakare and Rev Ejike Mbaka for their alleged silence on the issue
Political commentator, Reno Omokri, has alleged that telecom company, Etisalat Nigeria, supported Muhammadu Buhari's presidential pursuits not knowing that such action would have dire consequences.
The former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, made the statement in reaction to reports that a group of banks had taken over the management of Etisalat Nigeria following the inability of the company to meet its debt servicing obligations agreed since 2016 relating to a $1.72 billion (about N541.8 billion) loan facility it obtained from a consortium of banks in 2015.
According to Omokri, those behind Etisalat backed President Buhari and undermined Goodluck Jonathan, thinking they were working against the former president only for their action to backfire.
In another incident, Omokri released a video in protest against the removal of Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from the Nigerian education curriculum.
