Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, on Wednesday mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over the appointment of Ibrahim Gambari as his Chief of Staff, CoS.
Omokri, in an apparent sarcasm, said Buhari improved on the age of his late COS by appointing Gambari who is 75 years of age.
In a tweet, the former presidential aide said under Buhari the young die so that the older generation can live.
According to Omokri: “General Buhari is indeed a listening leader. I commend him!
“We complained about Abba Kyari’s age (67) and General Buhari heard us and improved on the age by appointing a 75-year-old to succeed a 67-year-old!
“In Buhari’s Nigeria, the young die so that the old may live! That is why Nigeria’s economy is dying!
“General Buhari is 77, Justice Tanko is 66, Ahmed Lawan is 61, the average age of Buhari’s ministers is 55.
“And now they have appointed a 75-year-old as Chief of Staff. Mind you, these are all football ages! In Nigeria, we study history in our leaders, not in our schools!”.
