…As Nigerians React to Comment
Reno Omokri, a former Adviser to ex-Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan, has said that in terms of what Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, a former Governor Lagos State, and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, achieved in Lagos, he is by far more competent than Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, an aspirant for the 2023 Presidential Race.
RenoOmokri, however, pointed out that he has no liking for Tinubu, but, he fully expects that if the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chooses the right candidate, they will defeat the APC presidential aspirant.
“But put his record side by side with Osinbajo’s record, Tinubu is better!” He concluded.
Reacting to this claim by the human rights activist, Omokri, one Twitter user, @Madonans, said, ‘Yeah you are right, Tinubu transformed Lagos without getting federal government allocations.’
Responding, @Ekpe stressed that what they’ve both is a lie. ‘It was only local govt. allocation that was withheld due to his ultra vires creation of additional local govt. areas. The state allocation was duly remited.’
@ojodave123 asked, ‘who was once at the corridors of power should understand better that there is no basis of comparison here. However you can compare Namadi Sambo with Osinbajo and let’s see who is better?’
Meanwhile, @OloyedeIsreal, said, “BAT is competent but he lacks integrity and vigour that the current Nigeria demands. Nigeria deserves more than better but the best in this challenging time. PYO competence was brought to fore when Buhari was on 3-month medical trip, he’s able resolve knotty issues which his boss couldn’t.
