Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Special Assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has revealed why President Muhammadu Buhari lied about his achievements.
According to Reno, Buhari has resorted to lying about his achievements because he called former President Jonathan clueless and is now too ashamed to admit that he has performed worse than Goodluck’s government.
Reno who quoted President Buhari of saying that power supply has increased to 7,000 megawatts two weeks ago, debunked Buhari’s position with the “Spectator Index report” (the world’s top electricity supply monitor) which revealed that Nigeria actually generated 3,851 megawatts, the 2nd worst in the world (out of 137 countries).
He further reminded that even Haiti performed better than Nigeria.
The former Aide who took to his twitter handle @renoomokri on Tuesday said : ” 2 weeks after President Buhari lied that power supply had increased to 7,000 MWs, Spectator Index @spectatorindex, the world’s top electricity supply monitor, revealed that Nigeria generates 3,851 MWs, which is the 2nd worst in the world. Even Haiti performed better than Nigeria”.
“Now that @spectatorindex has revealed that President Buhari lied about Nigeria generating 7,000 MWs of power, we must ask why does Buhari lie about his achievements? Because he called Jonathan clueless and is now too ashamed to admit that he has performed worse than GEJ’s govt.”
Sundiata Post recalls that President Buhari had, during his new year address to the nation said, “Power generation has now reached 7,000MW. On December 8, 2017 the country achieved 5,155MW of power delivered to consumers, the highest level ever recorded.”
Also, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola in his speech during the executive session of the meeting of the National Council on Power, revealed that the country’s power generation rose to 7001 megawatts in September 2017 with transmission of up to 6,700 megawatts and distribution rising to 4,600 megawatts.
Reno also provided the Spectator Index report for 2017 released on January 14, thus:
