Reno Omokri has recated to Tony Momo’s interview saying Buhari’s three years is better than Obasanjo’s 8 years in office. He tweeted:
Tony Mommoh said Buhari’s 3 years are better than Obasanjo’s 8. Let us examine that statement factually. In Obasanjo’s 8 years, he paid off Nigeria’s entire foreign debt of $30 billion. But in 3 years, Buhari has borrowed more money than all the governments in the last 16 years.
What is the rationale for Tony Momoh’s assessment that 3 years of Buhari are better than 8 years of Obj? Under Obasanjo, Nigeria officially moved from a poor to a middle income nation. Under Buhari, Nigeria had her first recession in 25 years. I am saddened by Mr. Momoh’s claims.
Tony Momoh, a man who should be thanking God that Nigerians have not stoned him, seems hell bent on provoking us to do what we failed to do last year by his ill advised comment that Buhari’s 3 years are better than 8 years. Why would Mr. Momoh do this to himself and his legacy?
But it is in the area of anti corruption that Buhari proved to be a huge disappointment. Sold to Nigerians by Tony Momoh and his ilk as a man of integrity. But facts don’t lie. According to Transparency International, Nigeria is now more corrupt under Buhari than ever before.
Do you agree with Reno?
