Why Nigeria’s economy thrived under Jonathan, failing under Buhari – Omokri
Reno Omokri, former Special Assistant on New Media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has given reasons Nigeria’s economy flourished under Jonathan while under President Goodluck Jonathan it’s allegedly failing.
He explained that Nigeria’s economy thrived under Jonathan because the former president relied on proper agenda and not propaganda as being done by the current government.
Omokri made these claims while reacting to a statement credited to Buhari’s Personal Assistant on New Media, Lauretta Onochie, who asked Jonathan to crawl on his knees and apologize to Nigerians for “plundering” the nation’s economy.
Onochie had also said Jonathan bequeathed “dearth of infrastructures” to Buhari.
However, Omokri, while describing Onochie’s statement as ridiculous, wondered who Jonathan should seek forgiveness from.
In a Facebook post, Omokri said, “Nigeria’s economy thrived under Jonathan because he relied on proper agenda, but collapsed under Buhari because he relies on propaganda.
“What Team Buhari have failed to understand is that it is easier to manage an economy than it is to manage lies.
“Imagine the ridiculousness of asking former President Goodluck Jonathan to crawl from Otuoke to Kaura Namoda to ask for forgiveness.
“Forgiveness from who? From President Muhammadu Buhari who said ‘Abacha did not steal’?
“Let me tell you what exists between Otuoke and Kaura Namoda-165 almajiri schools built for Talakawa that were never ever cared for until the man from Otuoke became President.
“Nigeria’s economy thrived under Jonathan because he relied on proper agenda, but it has collapsed under Buhari because he relies on propaganda.”
