Reno Omokri, a former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has listed what he called 15 lies told by President Muhammadu Buhari at the launch of All Progressives Congress, APC, campaign council.
Rotimi Amaechi, the Minister of Transportation was inaugurated into the Presidential Campaign Council, despite the emergence of leaked audios in which he allegedly criticised Buhari as someone who “doesn’t care” and “doesn’t listen to anybody”.
However, Omokri has countered Buhari’s speech, listing lies from his speech on Monday.
Among the lies, Omokri in a post on his Twitter page, highlighted corrupt cases condoned by Buhari’s administration.
“3. Buhari said “corruption is no longer condoned and is no longer seen as normal for public office holders.” Big LIE. Buhari went to Paris and praised Gov. Ganduje, after he was caught on camera receiving bribes. He received Babachir at Aso Rock.”
“4-President Buhari said “Our economy has become a prudently managed enterprise. Our resources are now working for us”. LIES. We had our worst economic crisis ever under PMB. Foreign debt doubled from 11 trillion to 23 trillion. Naira devalued 100% .
“6. Buhari Said “Our government has succeeded in the last 4 years in halting national drift” Lies. Ever since PMB said in USA that “those who gave me 5% cant expect to be treated like those who gave 97%”, we‘ve been more divided than anytime after civil war.”
“7. Buhari said “The macroeconomic health of our economy, indicated by measurable factors such as a stable exchange rate, lower inflation… has been applauded”. This is such an obvious lie from a pathological liar, I won’t even bother to debunk it.”
“9. Buhari said “In addition, the quality of elections since 2015 has continued to improve with declining levels of problems”. In Osun, the Police charged the PDP candidate for exam malpractice. 30k police cordoned the state and threatened Adeleke.
“10. Buhari said “the comparative difference between 2015 and 2019 on security, economy and corruption”. Another big LIE. According to Transparency International, Nigeria is more corrupt today than it was in 2015. Ganduje, Babachir, NNPC $25billion.
“11. Buhari said “We have reversed this downward slide that the PDP took us in its 16 years of misrule”. Big LIE. PDP made Nigeria the 3rd fastest growing economy in the world APC made Nigeria the world headquarters for extreme poverty.
“12. Buhari said “We have restored the territorial integrity of our nation, thanks to our gallant men and women of our armed forces.” As you read, Baga, Doron-Baga, Kross Kawwa, Bunduran, Kekeno and Kukawa towns are all under Boko Haram/ISWAP control.
“13. Buhari said “Agencies of government are no longer equivocal in dealing with anyone who flouts our laws.” LIE. EFCC has not charged Ganduje, Babachir, Aisha Buhari’s ADC, NNPC $25 billion contracts without due process. But charged Fayose.
“15. Buhari criticises PDP for “abuse by those entrusted with leadership in Nigeria.” Under Buhari the entire 10 intelligence agencies Nigeria has are headed by Northerner. Not even 1 is headed by a Southerner. Is there a greater abuse?
