Tinubu appoints son-in-law, and Reno Omokri reacts

Posted by

Reno Omokri, a social commentator, has spoken out against President Bola Tinubu’s choice of Oladimeji Ojo, his son-in-law, to lead the Federal Housing Authority (FHA).

The President’s approval of the reconstruction of the Executive Management teams of agencies under the Federal Ministry of Housing and Urban Development benefited Ojo, according to 460PLAY

Nigeria is not a family business, according to some Nigerians who have voiced their disapproval of the nomination, particularly on social media.

Assuming the appointee is capable of carrying out the responsibilities given to him, Omokri, a former advisor to former president Goodluck Jonathan, sees no problem with the nomination.

Folasade Tinubu-Ojo is the president’s daughter, and Ojo, a former lawmaker, is married to her.

Assuming the individual in question possesses the necessary qualifications for the position, President Tinubu’s appointment of his son-in-law to lead the Federal Housing Authority does not in any way violate any laws. Based on what Omokri wrote on X, that is not nepotism.

As the brother of the president and his closest confidant, Robert F. Kennedy was named attorney general and advisor by John F. Kennedy. Jared Kushner, who happens to be President Trump’s son-in-law, has been nominated for two positions: one as Senior Advisor to the President and the other as head of the American Office of Innovation.

Members of Trump’s family have been appointed to executive posts in the U.S. Federal Government by ten prior presidents, including Kennedy.

When there is a trend of favoring friends and family members over others with more qualifications, that is when nepotism occurs. An isolated occurrence does not constitute a trend.
