Former President, Goodluck Jonathan, has fired back at the Presidency, over a statement countering claims of corruption in President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
Jonathan made his reaction known through his ex-aide, Reno Omokri, via his Twitter handle.
￼Recall, that President Buhari through his Spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Thursday, denied the allegation made by Jonathan in his book, ‘My Transition Hours’, that the present administration is more corrupt than previous ones.
The Presidency, said that the allegation lacked empirical evidence to back the claims, and that the 16 years of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, was a waste, especially on infrastructural development, despite the humongous money available to the government through oil.
￼However, reacting, Omokri countered Garba Shehu, saying that the achievements under Buhari’s administration, are questionable and full of ‘lies’.
On his Twitter page, he wrote: “Garba Shehu you are a LIAR, and a disgrace to anyone who was ever a Presidential Spokesman. Iweala’s book says she warned the Governors, but APC Governors led by Chibuike Amaechi, refused to save. Respect your old age and stop LYING”.
“It is not Goodluck Jonathan who said there is more corruption, it was Transparency International. According to @anticorruption, Nigeria made her worst retrogression in corruption under Buhari, moving 12 steps backward, from 136 in 2014, to 144 this year.
