Reno Omokri, a former Special Assistant to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has slammed the supporters of President Muhammadu Buhari who are celebrating the sack of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
According to Omokri, Buhari has taken Nigeria further backwards than Solskjaer ever took Manchester United.
“You celebrate Ole Gunnar’s sack by Manchester United, yet the Buhari you defend has taken Nigeria further backward than Ole ever took Manu in reverse,” Omokri stated on Sunday.
“Can you not see your hypocrisy? By default, you agree Buhari should have been sacked if not for your tribal and religious sentiments.
“Let me remind Nigerians how much they have gone in reverse. In 2015, under Jonathan:
- 50kg bag of rice was ₦8000
- bag of cement was ₦800
- Fuel was ₦87
-Gas was ₦2000
- Electricity tariff was half the current rate
-Unemployment rate was single digit
- $1 was ₦150 (₦199 in 2015)
- Lagos-Abuja air fare was ₦10,000
-Brand new tear rubber Kia Cerato was ₦3.6 million
- A bottle of Coke was ₦60
- A tin of Peak milk was ₦80
- Banditry was nonexistent in the Northwest
-Killer herdsmen were being arrested and tried
Now, compare with what we have today. Leave Ole Gunnar and face the ole in Aso Rock!”
