The popular US based Author and public influencer Reno Omokri took to his verified tweeter account on 28th April, 2020 to counter the live broadcast by President Buhari. He wrote;
General @MBuhari’s speech was not live. It was recorded. What is the president afraid of? Why cant he have a live briefing and take questions from journalists? He just reads what is handed to him. #CoronaVirus response requires a dialogue, not a monologue. And then he went ahead and called it empty broadcast.
So, today he confirmed his allegation from the interview Buhari’s media adviser, Femi Adeshina had with Tvc News:
Reno tweeted below
In an interview with @TVCnewsng, General @MBuhari’s anodyne spokesman, @FemAdesina said “I signed on the final copy before the broadcast was recorded.”
This vindicates my tweet that Buhari’s broadcast was recorded, not live!
