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?”
