Reno Omokri, an aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has denied claims that he left behind funds that would only last three weeks in 2015, while describing him (Amechi) as a “useless Liar.”
Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation, had claimed that Jonathan didn’t hand over enough money to sustain Nigeria for three weeks.
Omokri, who refuted the allegation on his Instagram page, argued that Amaechi’s desperation to be the next All Progressives Congress (APC) vice-presidential candidate had led to him “pouring lies against the Goodluck Jonathan administration.”
Reno, Jonathan’s former media aide, called Amaechi a “liar.”
He wrote; ”This is exactly what Jonathan left behind on May 29, 2015, that Amaechi said could not sustain Nigeria for three weeks: Foreign reserve of $28.6 billion, $2.2 billion in the Excess Crude Account, $5.6 billion Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas Limited dividends
and over $1 billion investments via the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority.”
Responding to the allegation that Jonathan left government with only three weeks’ worth of funds to run the country, Omokri claimed that Amaechi has a slave mentality that drives him to do anything to please those he refers to as his slave masters.
He cited Amaechi as saying in a recent Channels TV interview that the money left behind by Jonathan’s administration when he left office in 2015 could not have sustained Nigeria for three weeks.
“Rotimi Amaechi is a useless liar who believes he can secure the APC’s vice presidential nomination by attacking former President Jonathan.” The year 2023 is approaching. “The entire country of Nigeria will soon see what Buhari leaves behind, aside from N40 trillion in debt,” he added.
“Sadly, he has a perpetual problem with self worth and Nigerians are cautioned not to take him seriously,” Omokri added.
