Ex Jonathan’s aid, Reno Omokri has eulogized former President Goodluck Jonathan. He said the ex-Governor of Bayelsa State did not pardon Boko Haram terrorists, a veil reference to the Buhari administration’s reintegration of repentant insurgents. Omokri was Jonathan’s Special Assistant on New Media.
On Thursday, he paid tribute to the former Nigerian leader on his 63 years birthday. The author described Jonathan as the best President in the history of the country.
“He identified the single biggest problem in Nigeria, illiteracy, and addressed it by building 165 Almajiri schools, and 14 new universities – 13 built from the scratch and one, the Police College, Wudil, Kano, upgraded to a full university,” Omokri said.
Omokri noted that Jonathan was detribalised and did not focus on development in his home state or the South-South region.
