Reno Omokri, a former Aide to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has described act of the Acting Managing Director, MD, of the Niger Delta Development Commission, NDDC, Prof. Daniel Pondei, where he fainted during his appearance before the House of Representatives Committee, as fake.
Pondei slumped while being grilled by members of the Committee, led by Thomas Ereyitomi, over alleged financial mismanagement in the NDDC.
The Acting MD was noticed to have fainted, while one of the Committee members was talking, which eventually disrupted the sitting, as efforts were made to revive him.
Reacting however, Omokri said that the drama displayed by Pondei, shows that President Buhari’s administration is corrupt.
According to him, from the video making the rounds, Pondei raised his hand at some point during the purported faint.
The former Presidential Spokesman mocking Pondei, said that his drama looked like he was auditioning for the Big Brother Naija reality show.
Omokri on his Twitter page wrote: “Did the MD of the NDDC really faint? I doubt it. Watch as he used his hand to hold the guy trying to resuscitate him. Someone who ‘fainted’ does not do that.
“Maybe the NDDC MD was auditioning for #BBNaija? I am a long-distance runner. I have seen people faint. No one faints and then puts up his hand to stop the person resuscitating him.
“When I said “under General @MBuhari corruption is official”, this is what I meant!”
