Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Assistant on News Media, Reno Omokri, has said that the notion that his principal did not honour Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola is ‘ridiculous assertion.’ This came as he asked between the national stadium and the University of Lagos, which was more prestigious?
Omokri said: “It has come to my attention that the Buhari Presidency, embarrassed that not a single former President or ex-head of state attended Muhammadu Buhari’s June 12 celebration, is spreading tales, through faceless groups and expected to grace the headlines of tomorrow’s papers, to the effect that former President Goodluck Jonathan refused to rename the National Stadium Abuja despite advice to do so, because he was afraid of former President Olusegun Obasanjo and lacked the courage to do so,” “Between the national stadium and the University of Lagos, which is more prestigious and which would require more courage to rename?
“It would also be recalled that former President Jonathan took several other courageous decisions during his presidency, including firing two ministers when questions of impropriety were raised against them.
“There have been a number of serious and proven cases of impropriety involving Muhammadu Buhari’s ministers, including two incidents of clearly established cases of certificate forgery. Did Mr Buhari have the courage to move against them?”
