Reno Omokri Tackles Babangida Over Comment On Jonathan

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has tackled the ex-governor of Niger State, Babaginda Aliyu, over a claim made against former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Naija News reports that Aliyu had alleged that Jonathan signed a written agreement not to run for a second time in office.

Aliyu, however, revealed that he and some PDP governors worked against Jonathan in 2015 because he reneged on the agreement.

The former chairman of the Northern Governors Forum said the North would have lost out completely if Jonathan got reelected.

He said after northern governors supported Jonathan to complete the tenure of late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, the former president was still allowed to contest in 2011.

Aliyu said since the governors in the North felt their region would be shortchanged if Jonathan had succeeded, they rose stoutly to insist on the enforcement of the agreement.

But in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Friday, Omokri asked Aliyu to provide the written agreement that was allegedly signed by Jonathan to run for the second time.

Omokri accused the former governor of falsehood during this holy period of Ramadan after he had admitted to having worked against Jonathan.
