Reno Omokri has made a controversial post he recently shared on his Twitter platform.
The author and lawyer admonished men to desist from spending money on a woman they have not married yet because such a gesture attracts no blessing.
Omokri was the Vice President, Africa, at Joe Trippi and Associates, a U.S Political Consulting firm. As the Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria, he was noted for using social media to conduct surveys and project the developments undertaken by the Nigerian Government.
When President Umaru Musa Yar’adua was evacuated from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia on November 23, 2009, for a medical emergency, he did not hand over executive powers to his vice, Jonathan. This led to the founding of the G55 – a group that put pressure on the Nigerian Senate to transfer power to Jonathan.
In 2011 he led some Diaspora Nigerians to endorse Jonathan for the 2011 elections, Omokri was a signatory of a letter by a group known as G 57 that called for the resignation of Yar’adua.
