    Osinbajo not a Pastor – Omokri explodes over VP’s claims against Jonathan

    The camp of former President Goodluck Jonathan has stated that Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, is not a Pastor.
    This is in reaction to Osinbajo’s claim that Jonathan’s administration did not build any infrastructure for Nigeria but frittered away the nation’s wealth.
    “In fact, in 2015, capital spend was less than 11%. So, there was very little to show for where this money went,” he added.
    But a statement by Jonathan’s former special assistant on New Media, Reno Omokri, on Tuesday, described the comment as a barefaced lie.
    Titled ‘Vice President Osinbajo’s Penchant to Lie Against ex-President Jonathan is Unbecoming of an Alleged Pastor’, the statement said it was on record that the Jonathan administration was only second to the Yakubu Gowon administration in terms of infrastructure.
    “Also, former President Jonathan revived the Nigerian Railways in five of the six geo-political zones restoring direct rail service from Lagos to Kano, Port Harcourt to Maiduguri and Makurdi to Gombe.
    “When Rotimi Amaechi took over as minister of transport in 2015, he said “In fact, I think we have a problem; most people don’t believe that the railway transport is functioning in Nigeria. I didn’t even know, until I started this tour, I never knew that the railway was functioning, it was even from his (MD’s) speech that I learnt that there are some coaches or services that go to Kano or Port Harcourt or elsewhere.
    “My question to the Vice President is who built these rail infrastructures that Amaechi was referring to?
