Former media aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has claimed that Nigeria’s economy has been better, since President Muhammadu Buhari left for the UK for follow-up medical treatments.
Omokri said this at The Conservative International Summit in Miami, Florida, on saturday.
He stated that the value of the naira picked up during the period that Buhari left the country.
“The Nigerian Stock Exchange contracts when President Buhari surfaces and expands when he goes on his many foreign trips especially to his London doctors,” Omokri said.
He also hailed Osinbajo as a better leader than Buhari.
“These are historical facts that show that the acting President is a better manager of men and resources than his boss,” he said.
Omokri also called for the world’s conservatives “to rally round Nigerian acting president who was recently undermined by being named ‘coordinator’ rather than acting president in his boss’s letter to Nigeria’s parliament”.
