In front of Chatham House in London, Reno Omokri together with supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, and those of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, created a scene. The incident was captured on a viral video.

On Monday, Tinubu addressed Nigerians living abroad to explain why they ought to vote for him in 2023.

Omokri and Tinubu’s followers were shown in the video engaging in a shouting match.

While Omokri shouted “Tinubu, drugs, Tinubu, heroine,” in an apparent dig at the APC presidential candidate, his voice was drowned in the chorus of Tinubu’s supporters who held placards and exclaimed, “Tinubu for President.” They also sang, “On your mandate we shall stand.”

In another video at the venue, Omokri and some persons holding placards were seen shouting, “Tinubu, ole (thief).”

According to the Daily Trust, Tinubu spoke to the Chatham House audience on his plans for Nigeria if he were elected president in 2023.

After his speech, some audience members questioned him about security, oil theft, education, and the economy, as well as how, if elected president, he intended to handle difficulties in those areas.

When the moderator urged Tinubu to react to the questions, he said that he would delegate some of his entourage to do so.

The former Lagos State governor asked the Director of Strategic Communication of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Dele Aleke, to respond to a question about oil theft and asked Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State to speak on his (Tinubu-led government’s) approach to addressing insecurity.

Wale Edun, a former commissioner for finance in the Lagos State government, was chosen by Tinubu to speak on his behalf when asked how he would improve the economy if elected.
