Former aide to Goodluck Jonathan and die hard Buhari critic, Reno Omokri has supported Federal government’s decision to place a photo of herdsmen on the new Nigerian passport.
In a post he shared on Instagram, Reno stated that he doesn’t see anything wrong in the government putting a photo of herdsmen on the passport as they are also Nigerians as well. In his words:
“I am against RUGA and I am against ISLAMISATION. I am willing to spill my blood to ensure that both of them DONT see the light of day.
But as long as other ethnic groups are represented on the new Nigerian international passport, I don’t see anything wrong in it bearing the image of herdsmen and their cattle. Herdsmen are also Nigerians. We are against KILLER herdsmen, not PEACEFUL herdsmen. We must promote PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE.
I have now received other pages of the new passport. It has images of ethnic nationalities from all 6 geopolitical zones. The issue of herdsmen on the passport may be distasteful to some due to the killings by killer herdsmen, but it is not wrong. It is necessary for peaceful coexistence”.
