May. 22, 2019
President Muhammadu Buhari has been given a number of advises by Reno Omokri, a former New Media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, on how t stem the high rate of suicide in Nigeria.
Omokri believes the recent spate of suicide deaths across the country ‘is at epidemic levels’
One of the recent suicide deaths include that of Michael Arowosaiye, a music minister. Michael, who reportedly left RCCG two years ago for Shepherd House Church where he served as a worship leader, was said to have taken his life following financial issues and the inability to pay his house rent.
Reacting, Omokri called on President Buhari to set up a National Suicide Prevention Team, ban the sales of sniper and also address the nation.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Omokri wrote, “Dear President @MBuhari, SUICIDE is at epidemic levels.
“I urge you to set up a National Suicide Prevention Team. Ban sales of SNIPER and similar substances.
“But most importantly, address the nation and give hope to the hopeless. God bless you.”
