Former Special Assistant on New Media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has accused President Muhammadu Buhari of ”padding” himself before meeting a delegation of the Nigeria Governor Forum (NGF).
Omokri made this disclosure in a post on his Facebook page on Monday.
”In 2016, President Muhammadu Buhari said he had never heard of padding until the budget was padded, now SR is reporting that he is padded before meetings.
”To quote SR, the President “is “padded” just before his meetings with governors and politicians.”
”Is it that the President is a quick learner? Or is it that SR is lying? I ask because on November 25, 2016, President Buhari said and I quote “I am waiting for the 2017 budget to be brought to us in Council. Any sign of padding anywhere, I will remove it.”
”If SR is to be believed, it seems the President shifted his attention from padding the budget to padding himself,” he wrote.
