False Narrative of Destroying Nigeria: Fashola Vindicates Ex-President Jonathan-Omokri

An Aide to former president Jonathan, Reno Omokri has said that the many narratives of a false claim against his former boss have been vindicated by the present minister of power, housing and urban development and former Lagos State Governor, Mr Raji Fashola.

Omokri made this submission through his Facebook account and obtained by urban express-news online.
The Media Adviser to former president Jonathan said at various occasion since   coming to power on may 29, 2015, both President Mohammadu Buhari and Lai Mohammed, have attempted to sell the false narrative that the Jonathan administration and People’s Democratic Party destroyed Nigeria’s economy and handed over a collapsed polity and are the reason for the current comatose condition of the nation’s fiscal and financial system.
“For instance, on the 14th of August, 2017, President Buhari, speaking through his spokesman, Garba Shehu, said:
“With due respects to the former President Dr. Good luck Jonathan, these are the facts about the economy you left behind, in case you have forgotten.
I hope this will help to erase the wrong statement credited to you and your party, the PDP Convention at the Eagle Square last weekend that you handed to President Buhari a robustly healthy economy. Let me start by reasserting an obvious statement, which is that President Mohammadu Buhari administration was handed an economy ravaged by years of mismanagement and corruption.”
Again, Lai Mohammed had also as recently as the 26th of January 2018, in an interview with the Sun Newspaper, said as follows:
“I think it will be tragedy for this country for PDP to come back because they have not even apologized to the nation for how they had destroyed our economy, destroyed our infrastructure, destroyed our quality, and so far from their campaign, ask them how they will do it better when they get there.”
Disproving the narrative, Reno said “in keeping with the principle that no matter how far and fast falsehood has traveled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth, Babatunde Raji Fashola, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, has exposed both his boss, President Buhari, and his colleague, Lai Mohammed, as liars who will say anything, no matter how untrue, to cling to power and demonize former President Jonathan and the PDP.
Speaking on February 1, 2018, at a civil society engagement workshop on the Power Sector Recovery Programme in Abuja, Fashola in trying to defend himself from allegations of ineptitude as regards the epileptic power supply in the country, ended up vindicating both Dr Goodluck Jonathan and the PDP, albeit unintentionally.
Fashola, in that event, said; “We hear all our so-called experts who say (non-availability of) power is why the economy of Nigeria is not growing. That is not factual and it is not correct. At the time when we had less power in 2013 and 2014, the economy of this country was growing at seven percent per annum.
We had less power then than we have now, but the economy was growing.”
Nigerians can now see that Mr. Fashola, in a Freudian slip, was made by God, to expose the truth that his boss, his party and his colleagues have been trying to suppress for the past three years, namely that former President Jonathan developed and grew Nigeria’s economy at an unprecedented and consistent growth rate of over 6% per annum and handed over a thriving economy that was projected by CNNMoney to be the third fastest growing economy in the world when Dr Jonathan handed over power to President Buhari.
Unfortunately, due to the ineptitude of the Buhari administration, a booming economy became an economy in recession in just one year under the All Progressive Congress.
And this is not the only recent example of the vindication of former President Jonathan by the Buhari administration.
Only recently, Lai Mohammed responded to the letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo by claiming that the Buhari administration had increased the nation’s foreign reserve from the $24 billion it met it to $40 billion.
The question for Lai Mohammed is this: From whom did Buhari inherit the $24 billion? From ghosts? From Killer Fulani herdsmen Reno Ask?

“In light of the vindicating statements by Raji Fashola, “I hereby call on both President Mohammadu Buhari and  Lai Mohammed to tender an unreserved apology to former President Jonathan, the  PDP and to henceforth commit to returning Nigeria’s economy at least to the state that they met it when Dr Jonathan handed over power to them on May 28, 2015”
