Total Energies is the theme of Africa Cup of Nations 2021 but today, Reno Omokri, a former Presidential spokesperson to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan on New Media described as a wrong Energy for the Nigerian Football Federation, NFF to have allowed President Muhammadu Buhari speak with the Super Eagles players.
Reno Omokri in a series of tweets and video broadcast few minutes ago emphatically and repeatedly said President Muhammadu Buhari is the reason why Tunisia defeated Nigeria 1-0.
According to Reno Omokri, Iwobi never had red card, Iheanacho never had yellow card all the time they were playing since the beginning of the tournament until today unwelcomed developments started pouring in after President Muhammadu Buhari spoke with the Super Eagles team.
Reno Omokri while speaking further asked if people have forgotten what happened after President Muhammadu Buhari spoke with Anthony Joshua, the Nigeria-British born heavyweight former champion.
“Buhari Is The Reason Tunisia Defeated Nigeria So Disastrously.
“Oh oh! Why did NFF allow Buhari speak with the Super Eagles players now! What is wrong with NFF? Have they forgotten what happened after he spoke to Anthony Joshua? Or Eagles in the last (or previous) AFCON? Please we want to win. This nonsense must not repeat itself!
“Iwobi red card, Iheanacho yellow card. All the time they have been playing this never happened. Why is it that it is the day they spoke to Buhari that these series of unwelcome events rained on us!
“Energies are very contagious. Avoid negative people!”, Reno Omokri said.
