- Pastor Reno Omokri has released a video in a bid to campaign against the removal of CRK from Nigeria's education curriculum
- The cleric said it is an unjust move and a disrespect to a great number of Nigerians who are Christians
- According to him, if CRK must be removed, IRK should also be removed from the curriculum
Former spokesman to the Goodluck Ebele Jonathan administration has released a video in protest against the removal of Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK) from the Nigerian education curriculum.
Omokri in his video was angry at the likes of Pastot Tunde Bakare and Rev Ejike Mbaka, over their alleged silence on the crucial issue.
He also warned that Acting President Yemi Osinbajo must speak up for Christians and for Nigerians in general. Stresssing that the vice president must not allow his loyalty to his principal, becloud his judgement.
Below is the video in which Omokri argued that Islamic Religious Knowledge must be removed from the curriculum, if CRK must go.
Tunde Bakare, the senior pastor of the Latter Rain Assembly, had earlier been slammed by the former special assistant to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan on new media Reno Omokri over comments concerning Acting President Yemi Osinbajo.
According to reports, while speaking about the state of the president’s health on Sunday June 18, Bakare had said: “The next in line might not be king”.
Lashing out at the cleric over the comment however, Omokri mocked Bakare for losing the presidential election in 2011 with Buhari.
In series of tweets, he stated: “Tunde Bakare can’t condemn removal of CRK from our curriculum but can send coded messages to Osinbajo about ‘next in line’ not being king!
“PMB ran with you and lost. He ran with @ProfOsinbajo and won. Maybe if you had “shown off” you would not have lost the election for Buhari!
“If Osinbajo’s show off leads to Naira appreciation, diesel price drop and prompt payment of salaries, then all politicians should show off!”
