“Nothing wrong with the Ministry of Finance begging for ventilators” Reno Omokri

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has defended the Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning after it went on Twitter to beg Tesla CEO, Elon Musk for ventilators to treat coronavirus victims in Nigeria.

Tesla co-founder, Elon Musk tweeted that he has ventilators to donate to hospitals worldwide for immediate use and the official Twitter account of Nigeria’s Ministry of Finance responded, asking him to send to Nigeria – a move Nigerians thought was inappropriate and disgraceful.

President Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad also tweeted at Elon to ask for ventilators to be sent to Nigeria.

Following the backlash the ministry received from Nigerian, the tweet was deleted and an apology was offered.

However, in a surprising twist, Reno who is a vocal critic of the Buhari-led and self-acclaimed ‘Buhari Tormentor, thinks what they did was not wrong.

According to him, “There was NOTHING wrong with what the Ministry of Finance did, by begging Elon Musk for ventilators. No nation was prepared for the novel #CoronaVirus. Ventilators are the most sought after materiel commodity on Earth. They were only trying to save lives by whatever means they had. New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo begged for ventilators on TV! It is not a disgrace to beg to save lives!”
