BBNaija: Nigerians vote more for drama than good governance – Reno Omokri slams
Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has slammed Nigerians for prioritizing drama and religion at the detriment of seeking good governance.
Omokri, in a post on his verified Facebook page, said Nigerians would sleep in church but will not care about ensuring that their votes are counted during elections.
He said the ongoing reality TV show, Big Brother Naija, BBNaija’s annual accumulated votes are more than total votes cast during general elections in the country.
Following outcries on bad governance, Omokri advised Nigerians not to wait for God to change things stressing that the power for change lies in their hands.
The post reads, “Nigerians are willing to sleep in church, but are not willing to sleep in a polling booth to make sure their votes are not rigged. Every year, more votes are cast on #BBNaija than are cast in actual elections.
“We vote for drama rather than for good government. And then we wonder why we have clowns for leaders. Buhari has ruined Nigeria, but Nigerians keep praying to God to save Nigeria.
“God won’t save Nigeria. God has already empowered us to save our country. If we outsource our deliverance to God via prayers, we will remain where we are until we realise God gave us hands not just to eat, but to free ourselves from oppressors”.
