Why The Nigerian Presidency Must Address The Wendell Simlin Scandal – Omojuwa

My Metropole.ng article today focused on the Wendell Simlin controversy and the dangers of Presidential silence on the matter. I wrote, “For those who may not know, Reno Omokri is not a private citizen. He works in the media team of the presidency as Special Assistant to the President on New Media. Dr. Reuben Abati has since made his role superfluous, but Reno Omokri remains officially a staff of the presidency and the presidency must take absolute responsibility for his indiscretions. This is not just your everyday indiscretion; this is something off the pages of the worst of propaganda. Something definitely has to give.” You can read more on the piece here Wendell Simlin: When Silence Is Not Golden – Metropole Magazine
