Reno Omokri, a media aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan has called the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi a liar. Omokri said  Nigeria’s ex-leader – Jonathan left foreign reserve at $28.6 billion, dismissing the Amaechi’s claim of insufficient funds.

Amaechi had claimed that the funds left by Jonathan were not sufficient to last the new government for three weeks.

The Minister had said, “As former chairman of the governors’ forum, I was told by the security in a meeting chaired by the former President including the former minister of finance that at every point in time, the government must leave money behind in case Nigeria goes to war that would last for six months.

“By the time we came, they didn’t leave money behind that could last us for three weeks. And I was speaking at that time as the chairman of the governors’ forum.”

Omokri stated Amaechi has been showing desperation to be the next All Progressives Congress (APC) vice-presidential candidate, “a situation that has led him to be pouring lies against the Goodluck Jonathan administration”.

“This is exactly what Jonathan left behind on May 29, 2015, that Amaechi said could not sustain Nigeria for three weeks,” he posted on his Instagram page.

“Foreign reserve of $28.6 billion, $2.2 billion in the Excess Crude Account, $5.6 billion Nigeria Liquified Natural Gas Limited dividends and over $1 billion investments via the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority.”

Omokri further wrote: “Rotimi Amaechi is just a useless liar, who thinks he can get APC’s vice-presidential slot by attacking former President Jonathan. 2023 is near. The whole of Nigeria will soon see what Buhari will leave behind, apart from N40 trillion debt.

“Sadly, he has a perpetual problem with self-worth, and Nigerians are cautioned not to take him seriously.”
