Buhari should make Jonathan's mistakes - Reno Omokri replies Sanusi

Former President Goodluck Jonathan‘s aide, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the statement credited to the emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, where he warned President Muhammadu Buhari to be careful not to make the mistakes Jonathan made.

Omokri said Buhari should make the supposed Jonathan mistakes, adding that contrary to Sanusi’s comment, Jonathan made naira stable at N150-N215 to $1 between 2011-2015.

He said: “How can anyone say President Muhammadu Buhari should not make Dr. Goodluck Jonathan’s mistake?

“Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that made the economy grow at over 4% every year GEJ was in power!

“Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that ensured our economy overtook South Africa’s economy as Africa’s largest economy!

“Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that ensured Naira was stable at ₦150-₦215 to $1 between 2011-2015.

“Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that ensured EVERY state had at least one federal university! Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that ensured EVERY election INEC held under GEJ was conclusive!

“Rather than avoid GEJ’s mistake, PMB should make the same GEJ mistake that ensured civil servants were consistently paid as and when due!

“How can you say a man who kept inflation at single digit THROUGHOUT his tenure was a mistake? Nigerians pray for PMB to make same ‘mistake’! Let me assure anybody NO MATTER WHO HE IS, I, Reno Omokri, will not let ANYONE rewrite history. GEJ was a man who did well for Nigeria!”

On Wednesday, August 24, Sanusi, while delivering a lecture at the ongoing 15th meetings of the joint planning board and national council on development planning in Kano State, had said that if the Buhari government does not expand the economy through wise investment, it will fail like the Jonathan administration.
