A former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has advised Nigerians to disregard calls for civil disobedience.
Omokri who gave this advice while reacting to Wednesday’s tribunal judgement on the 2023 presidential election, struck out petitions, seeking to disqualify President Bola Tinubu.
The Peoples Democratic Party Chieftain in the video clip, advised that Democracy must thrive in Nigeria.
He further restated his commitment to support the Peoples Democracy Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar while assuring that he also supported the administration of Tinubu/Shettima.
“Dear citizens of Nigeria, the presidential election petition court has ruled against the petition brought before them by Peter Obi and the Labour Party and it’s not too surprising.
“Now, I am in support of Waziri Atiku Abubakar, I will support him in whatever he does.
“However, why I am speaking to you today is because some prominent ‘Obidients’ have called for mass civil disobedience and some are even Coup-bidding. One of them some time ago said that a coup is an option.
“Look, Nigeria has gone too far; we want democracy and even if our candidates did not win the election and did not win at the presidential election petition court, this democracy must thrive. This is not about Peter Obi, I call on all Nigerians to disregard any such unpatriotic cause.
“I want to tell you something. I have been a victim of the Obedient movement, seriously. I did not stand out to fight the Obidient movement, I was in support of Waziri Atiku Abubakar and that was it. I was not against the Obedient movement.
“These guys don’t mean well for Nigeria. A movement like this is a threat to Nigeria’s corporate existence. So, now that they are saying this thing after they have lost at the tribunal, I encourage Nigerians to ignore them. If they feel that they have been cheated at the tribunal, let them go for appeal at the Supreme Court!
“Democracy must thrive in Nigeria! Nigeria is above and beyond Peter Obi and his Obidients. We call on the Nigerian armed forces and the police to resist any move at all to threaten our democracy. We will support you.
“I am going to support this administration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Kashim Shettima to crush any attempt to subvert our democracy.
“I am still in support of Waziri Atiku Abubakar,” he said.
