Jonathan’s aide mocks AU over Buhari’s anti-corruption war


Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has mocked the anti-corruption war being embarked upon by Buhari’s government.

Omokri accused the African Union of supporting Buhari who he described as a a man under corruption.

This is in reaction to a new report by Global anti-corruption watchdog, Transparency International (TI), where Nigeria was ranked low in its 2017 Corruption Perception Index (CPI) released on Wednesday.

The latest ranking has Nigeria in the 148th position out of 180.

According to the CPI, Nigeria scored 28 out 100, a figure lower than the average in the Sub-Saharan region.

Omokri in his tweets described Buhari’s corruption war as a fraud.

He wrote “Transparency International just released its 2017 Corruption Perception Index and no surprise, Nigeria has fallen from 136 that Jonathan improved us to, to 148. We have gone 12 steps backwards. I always said that Buhari’s anti corruption war is a fraud

“The latest @anticorruption Transparency International CPI makes a mockery of the @_AfricanUnion’s gesture of making Buhari it’s anti corruption champion.

“The AU now appears to be supporting corruption by making a man under whom corruption has increased its anti corruption icon.”
