Reno Omokri has eulogized former President Goodluck Jonathan.
He said the ex-Governor of Bayelsa State did not pardon Boko Haram terrorists, a veil reference to the Buhari administration’s reintegration of repentant insurgents.
Omokri was Jonathan’s Special Assistant on New Media.
On Thursday, he paid tribute to the former Nigerian leader on his 63 years birthday.
The author described Jonathan as the best President in the history of the country.
“He identified the single biggest problem in Nigeria, illiteracy, and addressed it by building 165 Almajiri schools, and 14 new universities – 13 built from the scratch and one, the Police College, Wudil, Kano, upgraded to a full university,” Omokri said.
Omokri noted that Jonathan was detribalised and did not focus on development in his home state or the South-South region.
He added that, “Some people mock him for this. But that is a father’s heart. I remember once when we were at London’s Heathrow, and the Nigerian High Commission sent a car to pick President Jonathan up.
“I was waiting to pick a taxi to join him at his destination, when he said ‘don’t be silly’, and shifted from what we call the owner’s corner in Nigeria, for me to sit, he sat on the other side. Which other Nigerian leader can be that humble?”
Omokri insisted that Jonathan built the nation’s single largest infrastructure project – the 187km Abuja-Kaduna railway.
The government critic said humility is often regarded as gutless and that citizens can now see that what they called weakness was strength under control.
“Herdsmen were afraid under Jonathan. Bandits were unknown. Yes, we had Boko Haram, but they knew they would be devastated when caught, rather than being rehabilitated,” he said.
Noting that it was under his ex-principal that Nigeria recorded the highest increase in life expectancy, Omokri expressed delight that Jonathan has been on peace missions across Africa.
#EndSARS: I Will Expose Peter Obi – Bonaventure Mokwe
From Bonaventure Mokwe-Dikeh’s Facebook Handle
Peter Obi just served me a panel process, on behalf of himself and James Nwafor trying to restrain the panel from hearing me out because it will expose his joint activities with Csp James Nwafor of the AWKUZU Sars..
He does not want the Anambrarians and the whole Nigeria and the outside world ,to know who he really is and his unbecoming relationship with James Nwafor .
Either way, I will commence a page by page posting of my 25 pages details of my AWKUZU Sars experience that is backed by a court affidavit on the Facebook, Instagram and Twitter and it will run for 25 days on a stretch.
He did not avail me of any benefit of doubt that comes with the law and therefore, I intend on denying him the same benefit.
I thought he is a perfect Saint that makes no mistake, what is he trying to cover?
PETER OBI GOODLUCK IN RESTRAINING ME FROM EXPOSING THE REAL YOU TO THE WHOLE WORLD.
THE CHIEF PRIEST.
3 Missing Kids Found Dead In a Retired Police Officer’s Car In Enugu (photo)

The bodies of three children were found in a car parked at the home of a retired police officer at Ugwu Ogede in Itchi, Igbo-Eze South Local Government Area of Enugu State on Monday, November 23.
The victims identified as Chibugo Eze, Chinenye Eze, and Ebuka Ene, were reported missing after they went to fetch water at a commercial borehole owned and located at the home of the former police officer.
It was gathered that two other children named Kingsley Eze, and Mmasichukwu were equally rescued from the same car.
Upon resuscitation, they claimed that three hooded men abducted them and left them in the car. The hoodlums reportedly returned in the middle of the night to take them away but they couldn’t open the car doors which were faulty, so they abandoned the kids and ran away.
The parents of the children had raised a search team when the five kids who had gone to the borehole at about 8 am on Sunday, November 22, did not return home as usual.
The traditional ruler of the community, HRH, Igwe Ike Oke, who confirmed the incident said that he also mobilised personnel of vigilante and Forest Guard groups who joined in the search of the missing children.
“We were almost frustrated in our search when a community member who went to fetch water heard the voice of a little child calling her name. She traced the voice to a car that had been parked for over six months in the compound where she discovered the children and raised the alarm,”said the monarch.
“We found three of the children already dead by the time we opened the car. I think they suffocated to death because the car doors were stiffed when we tried to open it at first but we engaged an artisan who forced it open. One of the two children rescued said they went to fetch water but didn’t meet anyone at the borehole because the owner and the entire members of the family had gone to church service,”
“He informed us that they were about going home when three hooded men came from a hill beside the scene of the incident and abducted them into the car and left. He said they were all dressed in red cloths. He also said that the hoodlums returned at the middle of the night to take them away but they couldn’t open the car doors because they were stiffed. We are still investigating the incident and the dead victims have been deposited in the mortuary. The owner of the house has been arrested by police,” he explained.
Also confirming the incident, the youth leader of Nkalagu Obukpa community where two of the victims hailed from, Ifeanyi Eze, described the news as shocking.
Eze added that leaders of the community are working toward unraveling the circumstances which led to the mysterious death of the children.
