Former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, responded to the visit of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Bola Tinubu to the former president.

Omokri responded, sharing photos of Wednesday’s visit, praising Jonathan’s composure amid what he described as attacks on him by Tinubu from 2010 to 2015, saying the ex-president never held a grudge despite this.

He described Jonathan as the best leader Nigeria had.

The PUNCH had reported that Tinubu had made a scheduled visit to Jonathan in Abuja on Tuesday evening.

The meeting, held behind closed doors at Jonathan’s home, continued Tinubu’s nationwide consultation with critical stakeholders.

Tinubu, who was accompanied by his running mate, Senator Kashim Shetimma, led a delegation of five APC governors. They include Plateau State governor and director general of its presidential campaign council, Simon Lalong; its Ogun State counterpart, Dapo Abiodun; Zamfara State Governor Bello Matawale; Jigawa State Governor Abubakar Badaru and Kwara State Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.

While details of the meeting were not made public, a source in Tinubu’s camp told our correspondent that the visit was an extension of the national APC leader’s consultations with key stakeholders in the polity ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

“His visit to Jonathan shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Tinubu holds no grudge against any political leader, whether within the party or in the opposition,” the source said.

Omokiri responded via tweet saying: “HE @GEJonathan, the best leader Nigeria has ever had. Look at his divine gesture. Bola @officialABAT spent the five years between 2010-2015 insulting, attacking and lying to Jonathan. Even after GEJ left office, he continued. Yet Jonathan never held a grudge!”
