Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has refuted claims that he sacked former aide, Reno Omokiri before he left office.
Jonathan who issued a statement on Saturday through his spokesperson, Ikechukwu Eze, said that at no time did he sack Omokri.
This was in reaction to a video that went viral on social media where Sowore alleged that he sacked Omokiri before he left office.
“Our attention has been drawn to comments online to the effect that former President Goodluck Jonathan sacked Reno Omokri, his erstwhile Special Assistant on New Media, while he was in office.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that at no time did former President Jonathan ever sack Mr. Omokri while he was in office. Mr. Omokri was appointed on August 17, 2011, and served meritoriously until May 29, 2015.” While he is no longer a staff of President Jonathan, Mr. Omokri enjoys the gratitude of many Nigerians including Dr. Goodluck Jonathan for his patriotic services to Nigeria”, the statement said.
” His record of service can be verified at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
