Reno Omokri Reacts To Tinubu’s Visit To Jonathan



Former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has hailed the former president for receiving the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, in his Abuja home.

According to Omokri on Wednesday, Jonathan, who he described as Nigeria’s best leader, did not keep a grudge against Tinubu despite the attacks on him from 2010 to 2015.

Tinubu visited the former president on Tuesday evening ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

The meeting, which was held behind closed doors in Jonathan’s residence, was in continuation of Tinubu’s nationwide consultation with critical stakeholders.

Tinubu, who was accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shetimma, led a delegation of five APC governors: the Governor of Plateau State and Director-General of his Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong; his Ogun State counterpart, Dapo Abiodun; Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawale; Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru and Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

While the details of the meeting was not made public, a source in Tinubu’s camp said the visit was an extension of the APC national leader’s consultation with major stakeholders in the polity ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“His visit to Jonathan shouldn’t come to anyone as a surprise. Tinubu holds no grudges with any political leader whether within the party or in the opposition,” the source had said.

Reacting via a tweet, Omokiri said, “H.E @GEJonathan, the best leader that Nigeria ever had. Look at his Godly gesture. Bola @officialABAT spent the five years between 2010-2015 insulting, attacking and lying against Jonathan. Even after GEJ left office, he continued. Yet, Jonathan never bore a grudge!”
