A former aide to Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Mr. Reno Omokri has taken a swipe at the Vice President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo over a statement he made to ridicule his boss in 2015.
Prof. Osinbajo had said during the presidential campaign that Jonathan was leading a visionless government.
According to series of tweets in 2015, Osinbajo said “Once we win, we have to hit the ground running because people’s expectations are high. Gen. Buhari is the vehicle of the change we need.
“We would support an immediate scheme to employ, train and pay 20,000 graduates (least, S/school) per state plus FCT, 740,000 relief jobs.
“We will intervene and provide 740k immediate relief jobs for graduates. This excludes the 3 million jobs target created by economy.
Omokri quoted the bible from the book of Psalm which says “And you yourself must be an example to them by doing good works of every kind. Let everything you do reflect the integrity and seriousness of your teaching.” to remind Osinbajo that he has not kept to his words. He added “Man of God, read what you wrote and ask yourself if your actions have followed your freely given word in keeping with what the Good Book admonishes pastors in Titus 2:7?”
Omokri reminded Osinbajo that the two achievement widely celebrated by Buhari-led administration were the hand work of Goodluck Jonathan.
The former aide disclosed this on his Facebook wall on Saturday.
Omokri said “After a year in power Professor Yemi Osinbajo may now see it is not easy to lead a nation. Does he still maintain this accusation against Goodluck Jonathan he made last year?
“May I remind him that the two main achievements his boss has celebrated in the last year are the Treasury Single
Account and the commissioning of the Abuja-Kaduna fast rail. Both of them were largely the hand work of the
gentleman he called visionless.
“My prayer is that the Vice President should read Psalm 15. As a man of God, he should know the implication of that
