‘Prices of items going down’: Reno Omokri reveals how Tinubu won his respect 


Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, says the ability of President Bola Tinubu to forgive with ease totally changed his perception of him. 

Omokri, who had campaigned vigorously against Tinubu during the 2023 presidential election, also expressed delight over the president’s less than a year performance in  in office, which he claimed dwarfed that of the eight years of then-President Muhammadu Buhari.

The outspoken Omokri, who stated this in a post on his social media page on Friday, said prices of some commodities are also fast going down in the country thanks to the reforms put in place by Tinubu, even as he felicitated with the president on his 72nd birthday.

He said, “On my fiftieth birthday, President Bola Tinubu acknowledged me, previously one of his most vocal critics, and wished me a happy birthday. Asiwaju won my respect and admiration for his ability to forgive and the equanimity with which he takes life. He has demonstrated that he is a true leader of men who can rise above his feelings and be led by his principles.

Therefore, on his 72nd birthday, I wish the President a happy birthday and pray for his success as the leader of our great nation. In less than a year in office, President Tinubu has far outperformed the eight wasteful years of General Buhari.

Our currency is floated, and fuel subsidies are gone. These courageous decisions are now yielding results in our balance of trade. Fuel imports are down 53%. Local refining is up 8% and rising fast. Our GDP has grown by 3.4% under him, and we now have a trade surplus. The benefits of these reforms are also gradually trickling down to the masses in the form of reduced prices for everyday items, like cement, indomie noodles, rice and sundry other staples used by the common person.

I will not be emotional, sentimental, partial, primordial, or parochial. Despite the fact that our political leanings are different, I will be factual. Bola Tinubu is doing well. And if he continues on this path, he (not the APC) will continue to enjoy my support.

May God bless the President with good health and a sound mind filled with wisdom to steer our ship of state right. Asiwaju, God has blessed you, and no man can curse you.

Happy birthday once again, sir.”
