'Audu Ogbeh is incompetent,' Reno Omokri says

Reno Omokri said Audu Ogbeh was running a ministry which require specialised attention different from his field of study.

Minister for Agriculture, Audu Ogbeh

Ogbeh recently said that consuming rice on a regular basis was risky, adding that substituting it with potato would be welcomed development.

The minister said that the consumption of rice in the country was rising and that a lot of people were not aware that the rice had some degree of arsenic.

But comparing the minster's comment to that of the Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, Omokri said Ogbeh was running a ministry which required specialise training different from his field of study.

He said: "Mark Zuckerberg came to Lagos and commended our jollof rice. Audu Ogbeh stayed in Abuja and condemned our rice eating habit. This is the difference between a self-made 32-year-old billionaire who values people and a 69-year-old French graduate running a ministry requiring specialised attention like the ministry of agriculture. One sees the best in people while the other sees the beast in people," Omokri wrote on Facebook.

The minister recently warned Nigerians against using grinding machine for vegetables.

Ogbeh, who gave the warning at the launching and National Dissemination of Food and Nutrition Policy in Abuja, said that the machine was not good for such purpose.
