Reno Omokri, an ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu’s visit to the former President.
Reacting to the visit and tweeting photos from it on Wednesday, Omokri praised Jonathan’s calm during what he described as Tinubu’s attacks on him from 2010 to 2015, claiming the ex-President never held a malice despite this.
He referred to Jonathan as Nigeria’s best leader.
Tinubu paid a scheduled visit to Jonathan in Abuja on Tuesday night.
The meeting, held behind closed doors at Jonathan’s residence, was part of Tinubu’s nationwide outreach with key stakeholders.
Tinubu, who was accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shetimma, led a delegation of five APC governors. They included 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 told our correspondent that 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!”
