Peter Obi would have visited Mohbad’s family if he died before election – Reno Omokri

Former media advisor to former president Goodluck Jonathan Reno Omokri asserts that if there had been an election, Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s candidate for president in the February 2023 poll, would have paid a visit to the family of the late musician Ilerioluwa Oladimeji Aloba, better known as MohBad.

According to reports, the singer had treatment for an ear infection before passing away on Tuesday, September 12.

Omokri, who stated this via a post on X former Twitter on Monday night, said Obi would have paid Mohbad’s family a visit if the singer had died before the presidential election.

He posted: “Sadly, the truth is that if this were before the election, Peter Obi would have visited Mohbad’s family by now.

“He would have posted about it. He may even have shed some crocodile tears and perhaps donated some money.

“But the election is over. And Mohbad is not from a certain part of Nigeria. He is not a member of the Labour Party or an Obidient. So, there is no need for Peter Obi to even pretend that he cares!”

JUST IN: Imo Assembly recommends removal of chief judge over age falsification

The Imo State House of Assembly on Wednesday, July 17, recommended the removal of Chief Judge, Theresa Chikeka from office.

The chairman of the ad-hoc committee Hon. Ikenna Ihezue, said: “Her actions amount to misconduct, and we cannot allow such behavior to go unchecked.”

The committee’s findings revealed that the Chief Judge adjusted her date of birth from October 27, 1956 to October 27, 1958.

Despite being invited, Ihezue said,  Chikeka refused to appear before the committee, which further solidified the case against her.

 “Her refusal to cooperate with the investigation only adds to the evidence of her misconduct,” said Rt. Hon. Clinton Amadi, a member of the adhoc committee.

The Imo State House of Assembly has forwarded their recommendations to the National Judicial Council for further action.

“We are confident that the NJC will take appropriate action to address this serious matter,” said Hon. Bernard Ozoemenam, another member of the adhoc committee.

“Falsification of age is a serious matter, and several judges and justices have been removed from office for this very reason,” said Comrade Ndubuisi Onyemaechi, Director of Investigations for the Civil Society Engagement Platform.
