Reno Omokri Releases ’15 Lies Of Buhari At Presidential Campaign Inauguration’

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.

Buhari, while inaugurating the council at the International Conference Centre, ICC, in Abuja, gave a National Leader of the party, Bola Tinubu full charge of his re-election campaign.

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.

The former presidential Spokesman wrote: “1. Buhari said he was unanimously nominated unopposed. That is a lie. There are several court cases, from multiple APC candidates, challenging and opposing his nomination because they were unconstitutional shut out of the process

“2. Buhari lied that he regained all territories, whereas our soldiers are falling, due to lack of weapons and ineptitude from the commanders that are appointed based on nepotism. Boko Haram are still capturing towns. Bags and 5 other towns in Borno

“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% .

“5. Buhari said “There is greater evidence of economic diversification seen in growing local production of agricultural produce”. LIES. Our economy is now LESS diversified. Contrary to APC lies, USDA says our rice imports increased by 60%. Google it

“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.”

“8. Buhari said “In addition, the quality of elections since 2015 has continued to improve with declining levels of problems”. What a liar we have for a President. APC introduced the concept of “inconclusive elections” into our political lexicon

“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.

“14. “Buhari said he reduced inflation. Why does the President do this to himself? At 76 (allegedly) he still tells such infantile lies. The inflation on May 29, 2015 was 8.9%. Today the inflation rate is 12%. Why would such an old man lie so blatantly

“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?

Dino Melaye Regains Freedom, Drags New IGP To Court

Published

The senator representing Kogi West district in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye has regained freedom after over two weeks in detention.

Melaye’s freedom was sequel to the bail granted him by a high court in Abuja on health grounds.

In his ruling, Justice Yusuf Halilu said Melaye should be allowed to attend to his health as he could not be arraigned on a stretcher or on his hospital bed.

Halilu ordered the senator to present three sureties who reside and have property in Abuja, emphasising that one of the sureties must be the clerk of the national assembly who would provide a letter attesting that Melaye will always be available for trial.

After fulfilling his bail conditions, Melaye filed a suit against the inspector-general of police (IGP), seeking that the police should not arrest him.

Buhari Reacts To Obasanjo’s Attack, Says Ex-President Needs A Good Doctor For Good Treatment [Full Text]

Published

on

President Muhammadu Buhari, Sunday night lambasted former President Olusegun Obasanjo for attacking and his government.

Obasanjo has compared the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration to that of the Abacha era.

Reacting, presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement said: “The sixteen-page letter the former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, wrote to President Muhammadu Buhari and released this afternoon is the last push by desperate politicians who can’t handle the President politically and have resorted to subterfuge.

Our first message to the former President is that he needs a good doctor for good treatment and to say to him, “Get well soon.”

As repeatedly said of him, since Chief Obasanjo left office in 1979, he never let every succeeding leader of the country function freely, and this included the one he personally handpicked against all known rules drawn up by the party that put him in the office of the President. But Chief Obasanjo is jealous because President Buhari has more esteem than him and the sooner he learns to respect him the better.

It is a notorious fact that in dealing with any leader that he failed to control, he resorted to these puerile attacks. As the grand patron, more correctly the grandfather of corruption as described by the National Assembly, Chief Obasanjo released today’s letter purely for the reason of rescuing his thriving corruption establishment.

The elections starting in February will be free and fair as promised the nation and the international community by President Buhari.

What Chief Obasanjo and his co-travelers in the PDP should expect is that from the outcome, we will teach them a political lesson that they will never forget. This margin will be much bigger than we had in 2015.

Claims that President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have embarked on the president’s “self- succession project, by recruiting collation officers who are already awarding results based on their projects to actualise the perpetuation agenda, in which the people will not matter and the votes will not count” is not only utterly false, but a copious note from the book on the failed third term agenda of President Obasanjo.

The man, President Buhari who has taken Nigeria’s reputation to a higher level internationally and is working hard to improve on the records of elections he found in place cannot descend to the level that Obasanjo has himself sunk.

As for his attacks of the administration’s records in fighting corruption, what the former President said is no more than evidence that President Buhari’s war against corruption is succeeding. They thought it is all a joke.

A leader who took USD 16 billion “upfront” to supply electric power yet failed to add a single megawatt to the national grid and to date, there is no trace of the money is jittery that he will be called to account. He is a coward.

Chief Obasanjo, manifesting a confused state of mind blames President Buhari for the fall of Libya into a failed state and the unholy alliance between the Boko Haram terrorists and the ISIS, while at the same time calling it an African problem, saying “the struggle must be for all West African, Central African, North African and most East African States,” which really does not amount to saying anything new.

Nigerians looked up to him as a role model and a ray of hope to ethical and clean leadership until President Yar’Adua called him out to explain what happened to the sixteen billion dollars of taxpayer’s money. It is clear that with him sitting on top of the heap of corruption, he is no different from the crowd he leads.

This language of his 16-page letter, likening President Buhari to General Sani Abacha, a man he dreaded and the one who jailed him under military laws is most unfitting from a former President of Nigeria.

The claim that President Buhari has put in place rigging machinery is both outlandish and outrageous. We are unable to get the words to describe a 90-year old liar, except to say that by the publication of this tissue of lies against the President, he Obasanjo, not the President will fall from everyone’s esteem.”
