Bemigho Reno Omokri has stated that the ‘greatest miracle of the 21st Century is how Borno and Yobe, the two Nigerian states ravaged by war, also became the states with the highest voter turnout in Nigeria.’
The former-aide to ex president Goodluck Jonathan queried the presidential results from Borno and Yobe states as he wrote on his official twitter handle saying;
“The greatest miracle of the 21st Century is how Borno and Yobe, the 2 Nigerian states ravaged by war, also became the states with the highest voter turnout in Nigeria. Apparently, it is safer to vote in Borno and Yobe than it is to live and work there.”
Reno disclosed that over millions of IDPs in Borno and Yobe were dislocated from their PUs, adding that armed soldiers couldn’t access certain towns in both states yet they had the highest voter turnout in Nigeria.
“There are millions of IDPs in Borno and Yobe dislocated from their PUs. There are towns in both states that even armed soldiers fear to enter. Tens of thousands of citizens fled to Cameroon. Yet Borno and Yobe registered the highest voter turnout in Nigeria,” he tweeted.
Sarcastically, Reno noted that the present INEC can actually help the Democrats defeat Donald Trump in US 2020 presidential election.
His tweet reads;
“The only way the US @TheDemocrats can defeat @RealDonaldTrump in 2020 is if they invite the current @INECNigeria to conduct their election. Borno/Yobe having higher voter turnout than Lagos. @MBuhari having 72,745 and @Atiku only 7,148 in Emohua LGA, Rivers”
Other Nigerians also reacted to shocking outcome.
According to one GODFREY MICHAEL (@djirokin)
“Anybody that will start a trend of pray for Borno and yobe after boko haram destroy them, i dy wait for the person on that day.”
Mr Čhūkś ÔTįÇH (@oti_pr) said;
“It’s safer to vote in Yobe and Borno! Than to live and work there”
Uncle Mark (@iamUncleMark) noted;
“After seeing the results from Borno and Yobe. It is very obvious they don’t need our prayers.”
While Viktor (@Veektohr1) said;
“The same Yobe state that the Governor could not vote due to attacks by Boko Haram turned out such numbers.”
