Reno Omokri has led a barrage of hostile reactions to the statement made by the President Muhammadu Buhari campaign Spokesperson, Festus Keyamo (SAN), describing the President as “friend of the poor.”
Keyamo, in sarcastic tweet at the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Wednesday, had described Buhari as: “The nightmare of PDP since 2003! The demystifier of old power-blocs! The slayer of the corrupt! The friend of the poor! The one the thieves love to hate! My guy!”
Taking the tweetstorm higher, however, author and self-described Buhari Tormentor, Mr. Reno Omokri, has taken up Keyamo, who served as Director, Strategic Communications of President Buhari 2019 Presidential Campaign.
On Thursday, Omokri, a critic of the Buhari administration, tweeted back at Keyamo, “Festus @FKeyamo is correct when he calls President @MBuhari ‘friend of the poor’. President Buhari loves the poor so much, he DOUBLED their number in just 4 years. Not only does he love the poor, he loves EXTREME POVERTY and made Nigeria its headquarters #BuhariFriendofPoverty”
While many social media followers of Keyamo agreed with his viewpoint, many also saw things differently, and this they expressed with memes and other funny reactions on his verified Twitter handle, @fkeyamo.

The DEAF & DUMB to critical situations!
The one the SENSIBLES hate to love!”
Thank you Keyamo SAN!!”

I love the way you defend this man. You don't see anything wrong with all he's doing. With the killings in Zamfara and some parts of the north. You are enjoying what's happening in the country right?
