Reno Omokri has apologized to Toyin Saraki after he made a most using her picture and that of Queen Elizabeth to explain the sad state of Nigeria.
Toyin Saraki got hold of the post and slammed Reno Omokri for his post which she referred to as a mis-juxtaposition which led to him apologizing.
Reno had posted;
Very few photos speak of the sad state of Nigeria as this picture. This is Queen Elizabeth. She was born great. She demonstrates her greatness by what she is willing to do for herself at 93 while a lowly official 1/3 her age is unwilling to do it.
Toyin Saraki responded;
Mr Bemigho Reno Omokri.
While I’ve never personally made your acquaintance, I am surprised to wake up this fine morning, to this mis-juxtaposition from you, as an apparent pastor of the @renoomokri Mind of Christ Christian Center of California and Abuja
Indeed Mr Omokri, your misadventure speaks more to the state of your mind and mischief, that you would juxtapose my picture approaching an airport receiving line with that of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on a walkabout at the races…
A few #facts – I have never desired, sought nor solicited any public office, whether high or lowly. While I am indeed 55, over half the age of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, it is improbable, in the Nigeria of today, that any woman may ascend to the throne of my royal ancestors
Since the time of your erstwhile appointed and remunerated perambulation as spokesman to Former President @GEJonathan , surely you must have observed, in person or virtually, the practicalities of principals requiring at least one hand free to engage with welcoming delegations..,
While you may not personally subscribe to the historic spirit of chivalry which Sir Walter Raleigh extended to Queen Elizabeth I, hopefully, chivalry is not completely dead in our gender challenged yet beloved nation…
In the meantime, in the spirit and vision of today’s #InternationalDayOfTolerance I’ll leave your mischief with some humour and good cheer!
Her response humbled Reno Omokri who immediately tendered and apology to her. He wrote;
Dear Mrs @ToyinSaraki,
I did not know that was you in the picture. Indeed, I know your character is not like that. If I had known it was you, I would have investigated further. You are an epitome of a well brought up lady and I crave your forgiveness.
