The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has revealed why he refused to release a statement after the Miyetti Allah Cattle Breeders’ Association of Nigeria (MACBAN) purchased the nomination and expression of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress for his former principal.
Naija News had earlier reported that the group purchased forms for Jonathan while calling on him to contest in the 2023 presidential race.
Jonathan has, however, distanced himself from the purchase of the form, adding that he did not authorize the group to purchase the forms.
Omokri, while speaking on the development said he had refused to release a statement earlier because he wanted Jonathan’s enemies to dance at the thought that the former president had been demystified.
The former presidential aide wrote, “Jonathan has nothing to do with the reported purchase of some forms. He has an official spokesman and his staff. He is a man of honour and will not do anything surreptitiously. The media and the public should be guided.
“I could have denied this hours ago, but I deliberately declined to watch his enemies and mine dance deliriously at the thought that they’d demystified @GEJonathan. There is no Nigerian alive that has the national and international credibility that HE GEJ has.”
