Former Presidential aide, Reno Omokri, has claimed that ex-president, Muhammadu Buhari, lied to Nigerians following JP Morgan Chase’s shocking revelation that puts Nigeria’s foreign reserves at $3 billion.
Naija News learnt that the American multinational financial services firm, in a report, revealed that a combination of foreign exchange forwards, securities lending, currency swaps, and outstanding contracts had weakened Nigeria’s net external reserves to an all-time low of $3.7 billion as of the end of last year.
On the contrary, data from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) states that external reserves stood at $33.88 billion as of August 10, down from $37.08 billion at the end of last year.
Reacting to the recent report of JP Morgan, Reno Omokri, in a post shared on Twitter, asserted that the immediate-past administration lied to Nigerians about the foreign reserves.
The political activist recalled how Buhari persecuted former president, Goodluck Jonathan, whereas corruption is oozing out of his regime.
Reno added that Buhari must speak on the issue or should be arrested and speak from prison.
He tweeted, “So, all this time, the Buhari administration lied to Nigerians and boasted that we had $33 billion worth of foreign reserves. Now, JP Morgan Chase, the US bank, has exposed them. My question is this, why is Buhari still enjoying freedom in Daura?
“Nigerians remember how he persecuted an innocent Jonathan. But look at the sordid mess of corruption oozing out of his regime.
“If JP Morgan Chase is lying, then General Buhari should speak. If they are not, General Buhari should also speak, but from prison!”
