Former special assistant to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has reacted to a recent World Bank report that claimed that poverty increased since President Buhari took over the administration of the country.
Reno, who took to his social media handle to bare his mind said that Nigerians should apologize to Jonathan, perhaps for voting him out of office.
In his words, “Have you guys seen this report from the @WorldBank? Let me break it down. According to the WB, poverty in Nigeria started reducing drastically around May of 2010, when Jonathan became President, and started increasing in 2015. Nigeria owes @GEJonathan an apology!”
According to the projection in the World Bank report, the number of Nigerians living in poverty will reach 95.1 million this year.
The report is titled ‘A Better Future for All Nigerians: 2022 Nigeria Poverty Assessment’, and it blamed the 2016 recession, caused by weakening oil prices and COVID-19 for this woe.
