Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has described former President Goodluck Jonathan as the best President in the history of the country.
Omokri, Jonathan’s ex-Special Assistant on New Media, stated this in a tribute on Thursday to the former Nigerian leader on his 63 years birthday.
Making a veil reference to the Muhammadu Buhari administration, Omokri said the ex-Governor of Bayelsa State did not pardon Boko Haram terrorists.
He said: “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.”
Speaking further, Omokri, a US-based pastor, disclosed that Jonathan did not focus on development in his home state or the South-South region.
“Some people mock him for this. But that is a father’s heart. I remember once when we were at London’s Heathrow, and the Nigerian High Commission sent a car to pick President Jonathan up.
