Last week, Nigeria received significant bad publicity in the media; from terrorism to fraud… nothing out of the ordinary, well until the country was placed in a report as number one as the worst place to be born in 2013.
In one tweet, Omokri addressed the ‘enemy’ directly:
“Recently some bitter person has been circulating manipulative tweets and FB messages maligning the current admin. I will address them in as much detail as I can with facts,” Omokri tweeted.
On Nigeria purportedly being ‘the worst country in the world to be born in’ in 2013, as rated by the EIU this just is not true.
That’s not what the KPMG report said. Please read a more balanced reportage on VOA here ( http://tinyurl.com/c5hvbls )”
On other issues:
On the issues addressed, Omokri said despite the awful reports, Nigeria was doing well, again attacking the ‘failed politician’ whom he believes is responsible for these negative reports.
“It is the easiest thing to run down your nation because of bitterness as a result of failed political expectations but Nigeria is our only country.
Be careful about those who because of bitterness spend their time looking for the negative things and suppressing positive things.
An example of a positive thing is the report by the Clinton foundation that Nigeria is one of the world’s 10 fastest growing economies.”
Could this be Round 2?
