A former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan and staunch critic of the APC led administration, Reno Omokri, has revealed that his former boss called him and appealed to him to show more respect and kindness to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Recall that Jonathan and the People’s Democratic Party lost to the All Progressives Congress and President Buhari in 2015 in a historic presidential election which saw an incumbent president defeated for the first time in the history of democratic rule in post-colonial Nigeria.
It would also be recalled that while the announced result was 14,932,385 to the 12,638,310 votes scored by Jonathan with only Borno state result waiting to be announced, Jonathan called and congratulated Buhari.
Omokri, who served as one of the official spokesmen to Jonathan has now described him as the most humble man he has ever encountered.
In a post he made on his Twitter handle, Omokri stated: “I just don’t know how God created Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. I have never met a man, whether Pastor, Imam or Pope, with as much humility as former President Jonathan. He called me and appealed to me to show more respect and kindness to President Buhari. Would Buhari do that to him or Obj or IBB?”
