Aide to former President of Nigeria, Pastor Reno Omokri has taken to social media to defend his boss,Dr. Goodluck E. Jonathan by carefully analysing the position of the Economy under the previous administration.
“The Naira was stable at ₦150 to $1 for 4 years of Jonathan. It only rose to ₦199 a month to the 2015 election, because of the money Tinubu and Amaechi were spending to elect Buhari. You guys said GEJ was bad. Now, it is ₦565 to $1. At this point, the Naira has less value than the Zimbabwean dollar. And Osinbajo (who is scheming to take over from Buhari) says it is not low enough!
I hope you guys are enjoying your good? Just in case you have forgotten how ‘bad’ things were under Jonathan, let me remind you again:
- 50kg bag of rice was ₦8000
- bag of cement was ₦800
- Fuel was ₦87
- Electricity tariff was half the current rate
-Unemployment rate was single digit
- $1 was ₦150 (₦199 in 2015)
- Lagos-Abuja air fare was ₦10,000
-Brand new tear rubber Kia Cerato was ₦3.6 million
- A bottle of Coke was ₦60
- A tin of Peak milk was ₦80
- Banditry was nonexistent in the Northwest
-Killer herdsmen were being arrested and tried
Wasn’t Jonathan very bad” he asked?
