Omokri calls ‘publicity seeking’ Osinbajo a liar

Pastor Reno Omokri, ex-aide to former president Goodluck Jonathan, criticized  vice president Yemi Osinbajo, on Tuesday calling his statement  that Jonathan shared a whopping N150 billion two weeks before the 2015 elections  a disgusting lie.

“Vice-president has again surrendered his lips to Satan to be used to spread slander and lies, he said.

Omokri  challenged Osinbajo to publish evidence that the former president shared the alleged amount.

“If professor Osinbajo has proof that former President Jonathan did so, then we challenge him to publish his proof. He is a professor of law and ought to know that he who alleges must prove.

“Again, it is a lie from the pit of hell that the Jonathan administration spent only N14 billion on agriculture and N153 billion on infrastructure in three years as alleged by the fallacious Osinbajo.

The former president Jonathan aide called on Pastor Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), to call Osinbajo to order if the president would not do so.

“The Jonathan administration budgeted and spent over $10 billion on infrastructure in the 5 years between May 6, 2010 and May 29, 2015.

“The Buhari administration, which in less than three years has borrowed more money than the PDP borrowed in 16 years cannot point to even one major project they have started and completed,

“Both president Buhari and vice-president Osinbajo keep accusing the Jonathan administration of being corrupt and claim that they run an anti-corruption government.”

He said the vice president was merely seeking publicity rather than making a statement of fact.

The vice president made the statement Monday while speaking at the 7th Quarterly Business Forum (QBF) held at the State House, Abuja.
