Bemigho Reno Omokri, popularly known as Reno Omokri has been known to be Goodluck Jonathan’s defender both when Jonathan was president and even now that he is not.
Born in 1974, Reno Omokri is known as a Christian pastor to many after having hosted Transformations With Reno Omokri, a Christian teaching TV show broadcast.
Omokri served as special assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan and during that time he was noted for using social media to conduct surveys and project the developments undertaken by the Nigerian Government.
Now, that the All Progressives Congress is the party of the current president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, time and time again, Omokri has used social media to extol Jonathan and criticize the current government.
His Facebook post below is only one of many posts he has been putting up. In this post, he highlights some of the many things Jonathan achieved and asked his audience to compare it with Buhari’s government. Read the post below:
“They keep saying Dr. Goodluck Jonathan ruined Nigeria for five years, but in those five years Nigerians had affordable food, fuel, dollars and regular salary at the federal level.
“Moreover, Jonathan did not spend unspecified sums of money on his health abroad neither did he write letters to the National Assembly defending members of his cabinet caught red handed in corruption.
“Perhaps Jonathan ruined Nigerian by reviving our previously moribund railways and made it possible for you to travel by rail from Lagos to Kano at a cost of ₦1500.
“Perhaps he ruined Nigeria by building the ONLY standard gauge modern railway that makes it possible for you to live in Kaduna and work in Abuja.
“In fact, I am sure Jonathan ruined President Muhammadu Buhari’s home state of Katsina, by building the ONLY federal university in that state. If ruining is what Jonathan did for five years, then what will you call what President Buhari has done to Nigeria in the last two years?”
