Nigerian politician and lawyer, Reno Omokri, and other Nigerians, have reacted to President Muhammadu Buhari’ s appointment of Farouk Yahaya, a major general, as the new Chief of Army Staff, COAS, in Nigeria.
The appointment of Major General Yahaya as the country’ s COAS comes in the wake of the death of Lt Gen Attahiru Ibrahim who died in a plane crash alongside 10 other senior officers on Friday, 21st May 2021.
Although the likes of Reno Omokri and others congratulated Yahaya on his new appointment, their congratulatory messages emphasized an anomaly that got Christians and Southerners worried.

In Reno Omokri’ s congratulatory message on Twitter, the politician said, ” I congratulate General Yahaya on his appointment as Chief of Army Staff, But will Buhari die if he doesn’ t appoint a Northern Muslim? Executive, Legislature, Judiciary, Defence, Army, Police, Airforce, NSA, DMI, EFCC, NCS, NIS, NPS all led by Northern Muslim Males! “
Reno Omokri’ s message stirred reactions.
A Twitter user @Ugwuchukwyani said, ” He’ s indirectly telling the North not to complain in case the reverse becomes the case when a Southerner becomes next president because they had their fair share. “
@Augustxjay said, ” But Southerners no wise. Let the have the power and authority. They’ ll still serve the north. Southerners leaders are the one selling their people. “
@Ishakuashafa said, ” He contested 3 times and failed, until your people, the yorubas joined forces to bring him, so please bear it “
@Donpaterson001 said, ” The precedents he wants to set now, if there’ s still going to be Nigeria. If another president begins to do same in their administration hope nobody will complain no even cough because if at all it will repeat itself it definitely will. SMH. “
@CherishJoseph8 said, ” This is basically a continuum, ei no go end another person go come, ei go preach ” one Nigeria” and ei go still support him people. Nigeria is still very far from any form restructure honestly. “
@Rrbecca said, ” He has a weakness for other tribes. Igbo people do not appeal to him enough. Even Yoruba, na manage he try manage them. It’ s high time we’ ve come to learn that Politics isn’ t an affair of sentiment. It’ s beyond one’ s tribal or religious affiliation. Let’ s learn to live 2geda. “
