Okoi Obono-Obla, senior special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on prosecutions, has lambasted ex-President Goodluck Jonathan for being a dishonest man.

According to reports, Obono-Obla made his comments in a chat with journalists over the weekend, in response to the former president’s comments during the PDP Non-Elective Convention on Saturday, August 12.

Jonathan had stated: “Despite the devastating effects of this natural disaster, there were no food shortages or arbitrary increase in prices, because of what we were able to accomplish with our agriculture transformation agenda, which considerably boosted food production.”

Obono-Obla stated in response: “Only a very honest man will say his mother’s soup pot is not good and Jonathan is not a very honest man, with due respect to him.

“If he were honest, how can he say that food prices stayed low? It is not true. It is not true that the Nigerian economy was very sound.

“He ran a voodoo economy, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

“There was massive unemployment, massive inflation; there was shortage of petroleum products, there was oil subsidy which led to trillions of naira subsidy fraud.

“So, how can he say that the economy was sound, that it was well managed?

"The bumbling incompetence of his government is what has manifested in what we saw when we went into a recession shortly after we took over when we met an empty treasury.

“If he said his government didn’t block loopholes of corruption, that is an admission that his government was chronically scandalously corrupt and which is true, because we have not seen that kind of mindless looting of government resources and money which has manifested in his former Minister looting what would amount to the budget of the entire northern states for about four years.

“He said the economy was sound when there were a lot of leakages through which billions of dollars were siphoned from the economy.”
