Reno Omokri, an aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has revealed how the Nigerian economy was brought down to its lowest under the immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari.
The chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in a series of tweed posted on his X page (formerly Twitter) on Saturday, October 21, claimed Buhari destroyed the Nigerian currency and planned to escape to the Niger Republic.
He noted that the political crisis in Niger, led to Buhari’s change of heart as he finally retired to his home state, Katsina.
Omokri claimed further that when “Buhari needed foreign exchange, he mortgaged Nigeria’s reserves.”
“Nigeria’s reserves are not $36 billion, Buhari borrowed against them”, he said.

Why Tinubu should probe Buhari, Omokri explains
The former aide and renowned critic has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to probe Buhari and his cabal just as he is probing the CBN under Godwin Emefiele.
According to Omokri, “Buhari came into power poor and met Nigeria rich, and then went out of office rich and left Nigeria destitute”.
Read part of the tweet below:
“We have less than $4 billion in actual reserves. Then, he started collecting money upfront for future oil sales in highly controversial crude swap deals. Almost five months after he left office, Nigeria is not making money from crude oil sales because Buhari collected the funds UPFRONT!
“Not only did Buhari borrow more than every Prime Minister, Military Head of State and President before him combined, the annoying thing is that he spent much of those borrowed funds in Niger Republic (he sees himself as a Nigerien because his father came from Niger), hoping to retire there. But now, with the coup in Niger, he is stuck in Nigeria.
“Where is his Minister of Finance? It is said she has fled. If another party had won the #NigerianElections2023, there is no way Buhari would have escaped prison. What he did was outrightly criminal. He came into power poor and met Nigeria rich. He went out of office rich and left Nigeria destitute. Just as Tinubu is probing the CBN, he ought also to prove Buhari and his cabal!
