A former presidential spokesman, Reno Omokri says in less than a year in office, President Bola Tinubu has far outperformed the “eight wasteful years of former President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Omokri, in a post on X wishing Tinubu a happy 72nd birthday, said “Our currency is floated, and fuel subsidy is gone. These courageous decisions are now yielding results in our balance of trade.

“Fuel imports are down 53%. Local refining is up 8% and rising fast. Our GDP has grown by 3.4% under him, and we now have a trade surplus.

“The benefits of these reforms are also gradually trickling down to the masses in the form of reduced prices for everyday items, like cement, indomie noodles, rice and sundry other staples used by the common person.”

Omokri said he would not be emotional, sentimental, partial, primordial, or parochial, saying despite the fact that “our political leanings are different, I will be factual. Bola Tinubu is doing well. And if he continues on this path, he (not the APC) will continue to enjoy my support.

He said on his 50th birthday, Tinubu acknowledged him, previously one of his most vocal critics, and wished him a happy birthday.

“Asiwaju won my respect and admiration for his ability to forgive and the equanimity with which he takes life. He has demonstrated that he is a true leader of men who can rise above his feelings and be led by his principles.

“Therefore, on his 72nd birthday, I wish the President a happy birthday and pray for his success as the leader of our great nation. In less than a year in office, President Tinubu has far outperformed the eight wasteful years of General Buhari.”
