The reaction of the minister of information during a press conference saying $1billion is not too much to fight insecurity has been given a knock from An Aide to former president Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri. Reacting to the said statement, Omokri said Lai Mohammed does not know is that he had implicated his principal as a hypocrite who has no moral Authority to pontificate on others!
On the 25th of July, 2014, Muhammadu Buhari gave an interview to APC Television, a media arm of the All Progressive Congress. In that video, he criticized then-President Jonathan for seeking $1 billion to fight terrorists of the Boko Haram radical Islamic sect.
His exact words were “now that we want to deal with some riffraff in the Northeast, this government is looking for $1 billion. We are in a real mess and we know it” Three years after making that statement and exactly two years after he claimed that Boko Haram was ‘technically defeated’, the same President Muhammadu Buhari is now looking for $1 billion to fight ‘riffraffs’ in the Northeast.
