Former Minister of Education, on Monday, received a scalding backlash for joining in the attack of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, over his demolition of two hotels in the state, whose owners were accused of flouting the lockdown order in the state to check the spread of COVID-19 virus.
Ezekwesili, had assailed Wike for the action, all but saying that the governor, had turned himself into a monster, for failure to discipline himself and allowing raw power to overwhelm him.
But in a quick riposte, Omokri, former spokesman to President Goodluck Jonathan, when he was in power, lashed out at the former minister, sparing no words in condemning her as a political turn-coat, and a hypocrite who only speaks up when it’s convenient for her.
He said, “Oby Ezekwesili, who is forever the hypocrite, is now attacking Gov Wike for demolishing houses in Rivers.”
“How come she was quiet when Elrufai demolished houses of political opponents in Kaduna?”
“Is it because the Elrufai family have her history of begging?”
“She is an APC agent who is being used to sabotage the opposition.”
“Yinka Ayefele’s radio station was destroyed. She was mute.”
“Elrufai destroyed homes of political opponents. She was quiet. But she attacks Wike!”
“She is the house rat that tells the Bush rat where to go. A saboteur.”
“Elrufai, whose son insulted her as ‘beggar with receipt’, demolished homes of his multiple opponents, including a serving Senator, but beggar Oby said Nothing.”
