The Special Assistant to President Goodluck Jonathan on New Media, Reno Omokri has taken a swipe at the Vice-presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo for erroneously re-tweeting the photo of a crusade organised by renowned evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke in Ogbomosho, as that of his party’s presidential rally in Kano on Tuesday.
Omokri took to twitter on Wednesday to tweet the photo of Jonathan’s rally in Kano with the caption, “This is not @ReinhardBonnke crowd photo (apologies to @ProfOsinbajo). This is a real crowd in Kano for GEJ #GEJisit✓”
Prof. Osinbajo replied thus, “@renoomokri Going to Kano after we just left, Mr. Omokri? Good to see the PDP & Mr. President follow progress for a #Change. :-)”.
Omokri then urged Osinbajo to pay copyright royalties to Evangelist Bonnke for ‘borrowing’ his picture.
“@ProfOsinbajo You are welcome Prof. I hope you remembered to pay @ReinhardBonnke copyright royalties for ‘borrowing’ his picture? #GEJisit✓”.
Omokri and former Minister of State for Defence, Musiliu Obanikoro led other Nigerians on twitter to condemn the GMBVolunters and Osinbajo for re-tweeting the Reinhard Bonnke’s photo on Tuesday.
