I Never Sacked Reno Omokri - Jonathan Reacts To Sowore's Claim
The erstwhile president of Nigeria Dr. Goodluck Jonathan yesterday denied reports that he sacked his former aide Reno Omokri for engaging in criminal activities before he left office in 2015.
It will be recalled that in a viral social media video, Omoyele Sowore, publisher of online newspaper Sahara Reporters and former presidential aspirant said that Omokri was fired before Jonathan left office as president.
However, in a disclaimer statement by Jonathan on Saturday issued by his spokesperson Ikechukwu Eze, the former president said at no time did he ever sack Omokri.
Our attention has been drawn to comments by an online blogger to the effect that former President Goodluck Jonathan sacked Reno Omokri, his erstwhile Special Assistant on New Media, while he was in office.
For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that at no time did former President Jonathan ever sack Mr. Omokri while he was in office. Mr. Omokri was appointed on August 17, 2011, and served meritoriously until May 29, 2015. His record of service can be verified at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
It is to e noted that Omokri has been lambasting Sowore since 2015 for supporting Buhari instead of his former boss in the general election of 2015 which led to the exit of the PDP led government then.
