Notable political activist, Reno Omokri has tackled reality tv star, Pere Egbi after he said disagreed with his subsidy opinion and referred to Nigerian politicians as ‘big-time thieves’ compared to Ghanaian politicians.
Speaking in support of the fuel subsidy removal, Reno stated that he had recently returned from Ghana, and they do not offer cheap or subsidized fuel that allowed the country to focus the extra income on developing their economy.

Reacting to his claim, Pere argued that Ghanaian politicians were better than Nigerians who always siphoned the country’s funds for themselves.
“Ghanaian politicians are not as callous, self centered, evil, big time thieves, manipulative and disgusting like Nigerian politicians. I’m sure they pilfer money every now and then in Ghana but they get the work done.”
Reno Omokri who did not agree with Pere dubbed his post unpatriotic and urged him to use his platform to promote the Nigeria positively since the country was not as bad as he painted it.
Thank you for your feedback. It might be a good idea if you use your celebrity to project Nigeria positively. Nigeria is not as bad as you paint it. I urge you to view the World Misery Index, published by The Hanke Index. Ghana is in the Top 20. Nigeria, according to the Index, is far better than Ghana in terms of Human Development.
Lagos State alone, with just half of Ghana’s population, has a GDP that is more than that of the entire Ghanaian nation.
As a participant of #BBNaija, you won a made in Nigeria car. Made in Nigeria mind you, not assembled in Nigeria. I believe it was an Innoson. Does Ghana have a made in Ghana car?
If you had been Ghanaian, would you be as big a star as you are today? Does Ghana even have its own version of Big Brother?
After Big Brother, you have become a Nollywood star. Would that have been possible if you were Ghanaian? Even Ghanaian actors are fleeing to Nigeria to make it big. Probably Ghana’s biggest music star, Shatta Wale, has publicly said NIgeria treats her stars better than Ghana does. Please Google it.
Ask Senator Ben Murray-Bruce. He and I just returned from Ghana, where we met with John Apea, the Ghanaian Africa Movie Academy Award winner, who was frustrated out of acting because the Ghanaian movie industry is depressed, like the rest of their economy.
Who got their economy depressed? Certainly not the Nigerian politicians and leaders that you are insulting here. Ghana’s economy is on the brink of collapse. Research it. They are begging the IMF for $3 billion bailout. If not, the government can’t even pay salaries.
Was Ghana able to evacuate ALL her citizens willing to leave war-torn Sudan even before Britain and America, like Nigeria, did? We not only evacuated them for free, we even gave each evacuee ₦100,000 cash, ₦25,000 airtime, a SIM pack, and food provisions.
Was Ghana the first country in the world to overcome the Wild Ebola outbreak even before the U.S. and UK? Yes, Nigeria did it in 2014 under Jonathan. Please research it. If I lied, I would pay you $10,000.
Pere, Nigeria has given you so much. To whom much is given, much is expected. Respectfully, would it be asking too much if you could be Nigeria’s brand ambassador rather than her brand de-marketer?
I urge you to be patriotic and never undermine your country and elevate a neighbouring nation over her.
Thanks again, and may God bless you.
