Reno Omokri, former media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, yesterday posted a comment on twitter questioning why the office of EFCC chairman is at all times occupied by a Northerner.
He was reacting to the appointment of Mohammed Umar as the brand new boss of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) instead of suspended acting chairman, Ibrahim Magu.
Lots of people chipped in to debate the issue. However one contributor who caught our eye was none apart from son of veteran thespian and notable actor, Pete Edochie – Yul Edochie.
Beneath is his tweet
From the desk of my big brother, the great @renoomokri Are there no credible men and women from the East, West or South to occupy that position? Must it remain one sided? Na so we go dey do the One Nigeria
Is there any law that say @officialEFCC Chairmen can only come from the North? Magu goes and is replaced with another Northerner, Mohammed Umar. There have now been 5 chairmen. Each has been a Northern Muslim. What‘s happening? Are there no credible Southerners?
