Nkechi Blessing and Tonto Dikeh have taken a swipe at Reno Omokri, the author, for likening them to Bola Tinubu, a presidential aspirant of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The ex-Lagos governor has consistently argued that he deserves to be Nigeria’s next president, citing his political records and role in APC’s victory over the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015.
At a recent event, he boasted that he facilitated President Muhammadu Buhari’s win in the last presidential election.
His comment has continued to elicit intense reactions among Nigerians on social media.
Joining the conversation on Friday, Omokri, in a Facebook post, took a swipe at Tinubu and likened his action to Blessing and Dikeh, who he cited as examples of disgruntled lovers.
“Tinubu is just behaving like Tonto Dikeh and Nkechi Blessing. Like a woman who was promised marriage and jilted and is now exploding and exposing the jilter. Buhari don buy market. He either builds another ‘other room’ for Tinubu, or marry him as promised!” he wrote.
“And the curious thing is that Buhari has not yet cheated Bola Tinubu, and Tinubu attacked him. Why did he not wait until after the primaries before attacking Buhari? Now, he has given Buhari an excuse not to support him. I thought Bola Tinubu knew how to play politics. I was wrong. Very wrong!
“Tinubu is letting tantrums spoil what could have been a home run for him at the APC primaries. How can you go and call a Yoruba Governor ‘eleyi’ to his face? Yoruba that love respect? Vice President Yemi Osinbajo must be dancing with his RCCG political directorate!”
Blessing and Dikeh have made the headlines on several occasions due to the controversies that trailed their failed relationships.
Responding in a now-deleted post, Blessing called out the former aide to Goodluck Jonathan.
“I use to think you have sense, but it’s obvious you lack common sense..why put me in this context in the first place? Welcome to Nigeria when a relationship ends, automatically it’s the man that left the woman,” she fired back.
“I for like talk more but Instagram guidelines won’t allow. Mr Reno leave my name out of your mouth..no let God punish you #respectfully.”
Blessing also took to her Instagram stories to further pour out her annoyance on the author.
The actress wondered why Omokri — who is believed to be supporting Abubakar Atiku, PDP’s presidential candidate — would mention her name in a political discussion.
“Support Atiku all you want @renoomokri but leave my name out of that mix, I am not a politician…” she added.
On her part, Dikeh described Omokri as “Atiku’s houseboy”. She also said he is “always on the wrong side of history.”
“Reno Atiku’s houseboy, Twitter fingering from exile. If your mummy born you well come to Nigeria. Always on the wrong side of history. Look at the difference your mate Peter Obi is creating,” she wrote on Instagram.
“Rather you’re here fighting young girls with bigger dreams than being a bingo to an oga!! I’ll come back to give you a reply when Peter Obi wins. As for now, I’ll let you run your errands.”
