A former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has called on the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, to pay the medical bills of veteran Nollywood actor, Mr Ibu.
ThisNigeria reported that Mr Ibu had appealed to Nigerians for financial assistance to treat an ailment that has affected his two legs.
Reacting via X, Omokri, while urging members of the public to donate to help Mr Ibu, called out Obi to help Mr Ibu as the actor supported his presidential ambition.
He wrote, “I sympathise with John Ikechukwu Okafor, AKA Mr Ibu, over his ailment, and I urge all #RenosNuggeteers to donate to the account number he put out. Please do not ignore his cries for help. I also urge members of the public to donate.
“However, this is a man who publicly endorsed Peter Obi. He and his daughter danced for Peter Obi and broke the Internet. They went out on the streets campaigning for Obi. The same Peter Obi who boasted that he was richer than President Biden of the US, who at the time of Peter’s boast was worth $8.2 million.
“After all that John Okafor did for him, perhaps Mr Peter Obi can support him by paying Mr Ibu’s medical bills. I am even surprised that Peter Obi did not remember to post about Mr. Ibu on his birthday yesterday. Even at that, Peter Obi should help him in his time of need.”
