Reno Omokri: Bola Tinubu spent five years attacking Goodluck Jonathan
Reno Omokri, a former adviser to former president Goodluck Jonathan, responded to Bola Tinubu's visit to the former leader of the All Progressives Congress.

Omokri responded and shared images from the visit on Wednesday, praising Jonathan for maintaining his cool despite what he claimed were attacks on him by Tinubu from 2010 to 2015 and asserting that the ex-President never harboured resentment despite this.

He said Jonathan was the best president Nigeria had ever had.

According to news reports, Jonathan and Tinubu had a scheduled visit on Tuesday night in Abuja.

The meeting, which was held behind closed doors in Jonathan’s residence, was in continuation of Tinubu’s nationwide consultation with critical stakeholders.

Tinubu, who was accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shetimma, led a delegation of five APC governors. They included the Governor of Plateau State and Director-General of his Presidential Campaign Council, Simon Lalong; his Ogun State counterpart, Dapo Abiodun; Zamfara State Governor, Bello Matawale; Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru and Kwara State Governor, AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

While the details of the meeting were not made public, a source in Tinubu’s camp told our correspondent that the visit was an extension of the APC national leader’s consultation with major stakeholders in the polity ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“His visit to Jonathan shouldn’t come to anyone as a surprise. Tinubu holds no grudges with any political leader whether within the party or in the opposition,” the source had said.

Reacting via a tweet, Omokiri said, “H.E @GEJonathan, the best leader that Nigeria ever had. Look at his Godly gesture. Bola @officialABAT spent the five years between 2010-2015 insulting, attacking and lying against Jonathan. Even after GEJ left office, he continued. Yet, Jonathan never bore a grudge!”
