Omokri Reacts to Police IG Snubbing the Senate

Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to the decision of the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris to shun the Senate for the third time.

Idris, who refused to honour an invite by the Senate over several killings across the country, had said he owed the Upper Legislative chamber no apology for his decision.

Reacting to the face-off between Idris and the Senate, Omokri said the police boss who defied President Muhammadu Buhari’s orders will do same to other institutions of government.

In a tweet, the former Presidential aide wrote: “If the IG of Police can defy President Buhari’s orders to relocate to Benue is it the Senate that he cannot defy?

“His tenure as Nigeria’s police boss has witnessed unprecedented killings nationwide. Yet this man continues to act as a law unto himself. Only in Buhari’s Nigeria!

“What‘s the difference between a dictatorship and Nigeria’s democracy if the Nigerian Senate cannot summon the Inspector General of Police especially where there have been unprecedented deaths in every part of Nigeria?

“What does this say about the Principle of Checks and Balances?”

    Omokri was still on one sided polygon and still serving the interest of his else while pay master.For his remembrance, is it not in this country that a minister (Deiziani)refused to honour the Senate and not even sent any representative and the earth was not loose neither the heaven fall.
    I’m not defending illegality, but for us to see the antecedent and for us to see that our law /system is faulty /crack somewhere. The Senate so far since the inception of killings in Nigeria had never once invited the IG but when the case of their beloved son/brother(Dino) came up they have to invite the IG.
    Who is deceiving who?
    We are all watching and not ignorant of the ongoing drama in the Senate.
    The PF said, the senate was written to produce Dino for charges on criminality which they dishonor.
    The IG sent representative which they dishonor.
    Our budget is there since Nov.2017 yet to be processed,but they can mobilized themselves to greet their anointed son
    Hmmm
    God dey ooooo
