Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has reacted to a picture which shows Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege kneeling to greet Buhari.
Hours after the inauguration of the 9th senate which saw the emergence of Ahmad Lawan as Senate President and Ovie Omo-Agege as Deputy Senate President, both men headed to thank President Buhari for his support.
The below picture show Ovie Omo-Agege kneeling to greet the Buhari.
In reaction, Reno Omokri slammed the gesture by the deputy senate president. According to him, that’s a sign that the 9th senate will never stand up to the president.
“When we have a Deputy Senate President KNEELING DOWN to greet General Muhammadu Buhari, how can we expect the 9th Senate of the National Assembly to STAND UP to him? The Legislature was created to CHECK the Executive, not to BOW to them. I served under President Goodluck Jonathan. I was Uber loyal to him. I am still ultra loyal to him. But I never knelt down to him. I kneel down to my God. I respect my boss. I won’t kneel down to a President. Sad! Very sad!”.
