A former media aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has urged the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, not to sack his aide for covering his nose.
In a video, which has now gone viral on social media shows the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu with suspected pee stains on his cloth during a visit to the Awujale of Ijebuland.
Tinubu, who was seated on a black leather couch alongside some other party stalwarts had risen to give a speech but his attire had soaked from behind, particularly at the butt area.
The politician’s security aide was seen constantly holding his nose while looking at the wet area as another woman immediately wore her face mask as the Asiwaju rose up to speak.
Omokri stated this while reacting to video clips showing Tinubu looking wet after he stood up to address some of his loyalists at the palace of the Awujale of Ijebuland in Ijebu Ode.
Omokri tweeted: “I call on investigative journalists to help identify Tinubu’s aide who covered his nose.
“I pledge to help him secure another job if he has been fired. Nobody deserves to be fired for covering his nose when the air has been polluted by the release of special perfume.”
This has piqued the interest of many Nigerians who insisted the wetness of the attire at the spot was urine. Others, however, argued that it might be sweat resulting from the long period of sitting on a leather couch.
Meanwhile, there have been concerns over Tinubu’s presidential ambition considering his health challenges.
Recall that last month, Tinubu had informed President Muhammadu Buhari of his ambition to contest the position of president in 2023.
Tinubu also paid visits to some Northern states including Niger and Katsina to sell his ambition.
He had also met with the former dictator, who annulled June 12, 1993, presidential election, General Ibrahim Babangida, over his plans to be President of Nigeria.
Unconfirmed reports said Tinubu took a long time to get off the aircraft when he visited Niger State, and that he had to be assisted to get down.
