Former Presidential aide to the former President, Reno Omokri has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for hailing the rescue of Thai boys trapped in a cave.
Reacting to the rescue yesterday, Buhari had commended the government of Thailand and international volunteers in the efforts to rescue the boys and their coach trapped in a cave for more than two weeks.
However, in a post on his Twitter handle, Omokri urged Buhari to replicate the efforts of the Thailand Government by ordering the military to defend Nigerians from herdsmen.
“President Buhari just released a statement hailing the rescue of 13 Thai youths from a cave.
“I hope he noted that the Thai government did not PRAY the boys out of the cave the way Buhari said there is nothing he can do about herdsmen but pray. It was ACTION that saved those boys.
“Instead of praising what the Thai government did by rescuing the youths trapped in a cave, Buhari should replicate it by ordering the military to defend Nigerians from herdsmen.
“He should also discipline Femi Adesina for his ‘giving land for cattle colony is better than death’ talk
“It beats my imagination that Buhari is hailing Thailand‘s rescue of the 13 youths trapped in a cave and saying it inspires him.
“If it inspires him, how come he has not spoken of Leah Sharibu, who is trapped with Boko Haram? Let his inspiration be demonstrated by Leah’s rescue!
“7 policemen died in Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory of Abuja where Nigeria’s President Buhari lives and he DID NOT even comment or acknowledge their sacrificial death.
“13 youths are rescued 6000 miles away in Thailand and Nigeria’s President Buhari issues a statement!”
