President Jonathan's competency & El-Rufai's sour grapes - by Reno Omokri

President Jonathan's Special Assistant on New Media, Reno Omokri, has responded to Mallam El Rufai's interview yesterday where he called Mr president incompetent. Reno's response below...
Having read Malam Nasir Elrufai's interview in the Saturday Sun of September 14, 2013, I am compelled to present facts to set the records straight in order that the general public is not misled by the machinations of a man who is in dire need of prayers and perhaps psychological assistance.
Nasir Elrufai said "Nothing can make Jonathan succeed. He is grossly incompetent, he doesn’t listen, he doesn’t even understand the issues. I am sorry! I know the man more than those that are shouting with Jonathan because when he was my friend, none of them even knew him. I knew Jonathan as a deputy governor in 2002. That was when I first met him and we have been relating. So, all these new found Jonathan lovers should just shut up. I know him and I know what he can do and what he cannot do. So, please, they should just leave me alone. Those that want jobs can go and take jobs. I don’t want".
Now, let me start by saying that Nasir Elrufai lied when he said this and there is documentary evidence to prove this. For instance, contrary to what he said in this interview, Nasir Elrufai at a meeting with Ambassador John Campbell in  April of 2007 said that the then Vice Presidential nominee of the People's Democratic Party, PDP, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan "is clean and honest". Going further, Elrufai told the ambassador that "Governor Jonathan was the only candidate that met Obasanjo’s guidelines- honesty and Ijaw”. Unknownto Elrufai, the ambassador kept a record of their conversation which is now a public record in America. 

Beyond that, Nasir Elrufai, who had gone into voluntary exile under the presidency of Malam Umaru Musa Yar'adua after he was accused of corruption and abuse of office while he was minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, felt safe enough to return to Nigeria as soon as President Jonathan ascended to power. 

When Elrufai returned to Nigeria, in 2010, he visited the President at Aso Rock Presidential Villa on May 11, 2010, and was the first major political figure to call on President Jonathan to contest for the 2011 presidential election. Elrufaialso praised President Jonathan openly.

The Holy Bible says in James 1:8 "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways". I think this biblical verse best describes Nasir ElrufaiElrufai in this his latest interview showers encomiums on Major General Muhammadu 
Buhari saying "I think that where Nigeria is today, only someone like Buhari, with the experience of having run the country before, and having run it along certain principles of discipline, integrity and accountability, that Nigeria needs".

However, this is what the same Elrufai had to say aboutBuhari on October 6 2010 Mallam El-Rufai wishes to remind General Buhari that he has remained perpetually unelectable because his record as military head of state, and afterwards, is a warning that many Nigerians have wisely heeded. His insensitivity to Nigeria’s diversity and his parochial focus are already well-known. In 1984, Buhariallowed 53 suitcases belonging to his ADC’s father to enter Nigeria unchecked at a time the country was exchanging old currency for new.  Against all canons of legal decency, he used retroactive laws to execute three young men for drug-peddling after they were convicted by a military tribunal and not regular courts of law. Buhari was so high handed that he gave himself and his officials immunity even from truthful reporting. That obnoxious Decree 4, against which truth was no defence, was used to jail journalists and attempt to cow the media as a whole. That tyrannical legislation shows the essence of his intolerance. These are facts of recent history. The story of counter-trade and import licensing, the cornerstone of Buhari’s stone-age economic strategy and those whose interests it served, is a tale for another day."

Now, how does one man go from warning the nation aboutBuhari as a man unfit to govern Nigeria and one who is perpetually unelectable because of his parochial nature to saying that he is the man that can best lead this nation?

Is it not obvious to all that there is more than one personality  in possession of the mind and soul of this man called NasirElrufai? Can any sane person trust the words of a man who is so unstable? 

Today, Elrufai, perhaps banking on what he thinks is the short memory of 
Nigerians is attempting to rewrite history. But it is such a difficult task to paint over the truth with a lie. 

Nasir Elrufai wanted something from the President which was why he visited him at the Presidential Villa to heapunsolicited praise on the president in 2010. When he did not get what he wanted, he became bitter and since the days of yore when the fox that could not get the grapes tagged them 'sour grapes' to mask its frustration, it has always been the habit of persons who cannot compete on the basis of ideas to give a dog a bad name in order to hang it. Thus, Elrufai, having run out of ideas, has tagged this administration as 'incompetent'. But as they say in law, Res Ipsa Loquitor, (thefacts speaks for themselves). 

In just this past month alone, we have seen a fulfilment of two major Jonathanian promises. The Akanu Ibiam Airport is now officially an International Airport as its facilities have been upgraded to meet ICAO standards and it received its first international commercial flight. Also, the rail services have been revived from Apapa Port to the North. 

In these two instances, the Jonathan administration has put money back in the wallets of Nigerian citizens. Every time someone flies internationally from the Akanu Ibiam Airport, he saves sixty thousand Naira that would have been spent paying for connecting flights to Lagos, Port Harcourt or Abuja. And every time you receive a container by rail in Northern Nigeria from Apapa Port, you would have savedperhaps fifty thousand Naira that would have been spent on additional cost from hauling your container by road

And this is just for last month. Time would not permit me to highlight the 153 Almajiri schools built in every state of the North to serve our children who are engaged in the almajirinciform of Qu'ranic education (a total of 400 are to be delivered), or the ongoing reconstruction (not repair) of the Lagos-Ibadan road for which 167 billion has already been reserved to prevent the project being an abandoned project, or the dredging of the River Niger up to Baro in Niger state to make that port accessible to ships, or the establishment of the Green Belt Zone along Nigeria's Northern borders to end desertification, or the signing of the HYPADEC bill into law to enable the people of the Hydro Electric producing areas benefit from their God given resources,  or the current massive multi billion Naira efforts to save the Lake Chad from drying up. This is besides the fact that those states which did not have a federal university prior to President Jonathan's ascendancy now have at least one university, thanks to this administration's establishment of nine new universities.

I have identified these projects on purpose because they were meant to be priority projects of yore but were however left unattended until one man called Jonathan Goodluck entered the scene. 

Why has it taken an "incompetent" President Jonathan to grow Nigeria's economy at over 6% per annum since he ascended to the presidency? Why has it taken an "incompetent" administration to get Nigeria to be promoted from a "Low Income Nation" to a "Middle Income Nation" by the World Bank? Again, it took an incompetent administration to ensure Nigeria won its first African Cup of Nations in 19 years. If previous administrations had been this  'incompetent', then Nigeria would have long since overtaken South Africa as Africa's largest economy, but we did not achieve this feat until an 'incompetent' Jonathan was brought to office by the votes of over 22 million Nigerians. 

In this latest interview, Elrufai boasts that he is a "self-made man". Even this statement is a sad reflection of the irreligious state of Nasir Elrufai's mind. People who say they are "self made" should read The Book of Daniel and see what God did to Nebuchadnezzar after he made such a boast. Nobody is self made. Does it make mathematical sense to believe that the God who has numbered the hairs on your head has no input into the opportunities that came your way?

In a Wikileaks document, an identified American diplomat revealed that Elrufai was "personally known to him to be homeless" before he got into government. Now Elrufai has never sued the diplomat for libel or slander. But today, this man who was known by a U.S. diplomat to be homeless now boasts that " I was already a self-made man when I came into government". Since when did homelessness amount to being "self-made"?

And Elrufai further showed his disconnect with the realities around him when he boasted in his interview that "there is no one who sat at the table with us when we were making these decisions and advancing these arguments that have come out to say that what I wrote there [his book, The Accidental Public Servant] is not true". This statement is so easy to demolish. As at the last count, the following persons have come out very publicly on the front and back pages of newspapers to say that what Elrufai wrote is a lie; former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, former Economics and Financial Crimes Commission Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, former Central Bank Governor, Chukwuma Soludo, former Imo State Governor, Ikedi Ohakim amongst others. In fact, NuhuRibadu was reported in the Punch of February the 19th 2013 to have said that "There is a huge integrity deficiency" inElrufai's book!

Does Elrufai have such a record for truth that we can say that his word outweighs the words of these gentlemen?

In any case, let me conclude by saying that Malam NasirElrufai has problems that may not be known to the generality of Nigerians and certainly by his current bed fellows in the All Progressive Congress. In his book, The Accidental Public Servant, Elrufai had terrible and nasty things to say about those whose backs he had already climbed on and reserved encomiums for those whose backs he needs to climb on. That alone speaks volumes of his character and should alert his current associates to the proverb that a slave who sees his fellow buried in shallow grave should know that he would receive the same treatment when his time comes.

Reno Omokri is Special Assistant (New Media) to the President.

Regards,
Reno,

There's an adage that says " birds of a feather flocks together" El Rufai and the president , all of you are same, you are his fan when he was a deputy but now when the going isn't good anymore he's bad, even if he's bad it shldnt be from you cuz you all are same thing, but I solemnly say this to you all, my God is a God of vengeance, he will avenge all we poor masses from you one after the other. No peace for each and everyone of you right from when ure in office and after u leave office, the rest of your lives shall be in agony and pain....unless you consider the poor masses and stop making our very own country hard on us!

Is this all that Reno has got to contribute to nation building to earn his salary and huge allowances in the Presidency? Instead of having Abati, Okupe and Gullak as well as the Information Minister in one govt to be draining and wasting our common wealth, Jona should just retain one of them to protect our ears and preserve our scarce resources. Political jobbers everywhere! Hissssssss.......

What of all the stories of corruption that has been swept under the carpet? Farouk/Otedola(subsidy) issue has become a forgotten issue now. So many similar tales which have become body creams for the masses to rub on and go about like it's normal. I don't care for ElRufai or anyone of u guys for that matter, u all are the same. Reuben Abati talk pass this one, now he has turned to jonathan's ass licker, so nothing is new to us. U all are just after one job or post or the other. All the nonsense projects that u listed above Mr Reno, how many directly benefits the masses? How many employments has that created? How much does it curb the corruption which has become the major cancer in this nation, and the hallmark of the so called leaders, and for that matter, with impunity. You have nothing to say to convince me of Jonathan's competence. He is lousy at his job, lacking in focus, needs a lot more schooling in terms of public appearances and addresses, and too hideous. I always have this feeling that he's hiding something. Those "cabals" who have been caught in one shady deal or the other should be severly punished, but No. This only encourages more people to be corrupt. And u come here to tell me he's doing projects. Projects that people will still steal from? Biko, getout of here Mr asslicker. So annoying bunch

My take: Omokri is right to defend his master. Elrufai is too harsh with his criticism of the President. Elrufai is also guilty as charged for double-speaking. Elrufai is right that Jonathan doesn't understand issues . He appears too naive to me. Omokri should know that he is supposed to be silent on accusing elrufai for double speaking because his media partner, Abati once hit out at Patience Jonathan in a widely published article . He is now a champion in the defence of the first family.

Let all these old politicians go and rest. You've all had the chance of making this country a better place and failed. Even the good ones among them(if there are any) should go and sit down because there refusal to act made evil prevail in this country of ours.
El Rufai has always struck me as a rude prostitute that jumps into bed with the highest bidder because going by his track records, he's always had at least two different opinons about any personality or issue. And that makes him a liar.
That's not to say that his views about Jonathan is completely out of line or that Buhari is not more of a regional leader/bigot. But simply put, El Rufai lacks the credibility to condemn anybody.

This whole Reno's method of attacking the opposition is sad. Like i tweeted,
"Reno is obviously delivering for his master. Whipping up sentiments, stereo-types, near truths with clear truths to drive home his point"

For instance, those who didnt read the article should take a second and read this point, then go back and see how Reno Omokri twisted it to mean 'self-made', when even el rufai admits no one makes it alone. this is just one example of how Reno twists the truth. Nigerians, shine your eyes!

Question:
But some are of the opinion that because of the role he played in your life, you ought not to have criticized him in the book.

That is a wrong conception. First, what role did he play in my life? Did he educate me? Did he give me my skills and my abilities? It is utter nonsense. All right? I was already a self-made man when I came into government. So, nobody can start boasting that he played a dominant role in my life. We all get to where we are with the intervention of others. So, I am not denying that Atiku played a role, but what role? And does that mean that I am his slave for life? Does that mean that when he does something that is unlawful, I will not complain? Or does that mean that when he does something against the overall interest of Nigeria, I should accept it? That is utter nonsense and it is that kind of sycophancy that draws Nigeria to where it is.

Personally, am not on any side in terms of our political rulers which is my prefered term for what we have as a nationa.However, this write up is so childish. If you believe you are working or ur boss is working let the populace make their decision. My country Nigeria will only be great when we all stand for the Truth. Until then, this political, tribe, or religious intrest will get us no where except further down the dark lane. Am hoping for a Nigeria where we will stand come the next election and bring leaders with a workable vision and not focus on party,religion or tribe.

This elrifai or whatever he calls himself is a stupid man, why can't he just respect himself and leave Nigerians alone, Nigeria is a Nation and not anybody 's personal property, the idiot was the same person that said anambra state doesn't have anything whereas all the beggars at anambra are his brothers and anambra state accommodated them, he should please try to respect his elders so that he will be respected in future.

Shameless midget of a man. el Rufai!!

Well I can categorically say that both Mr El rufai and Mr Reno Omokri are pathetic liars. Oh because you have evidence to show el rufia is a double mouth man you think we will believe your own story about jonathan? Please save yourself the stress cuz we don't buy it. El Rufai now you see that its only in yoruba adage that you can't retrieve spoken words, this time words spoken are taped, recorded and filed for future reference. The question is, with all this being said about your past and present word for and against jonathan and buhari, who will believe anything else you have to say in times to come? We already know all of you politicians lie for living so don't try to pretend as a saint and to you Reno, who else will you speak for if not your oga at the top? You are like his house maid, you say what he want you to say and sometimes say good of your boss because labor market hard now o. So y'all should take several seat, we know what we know. Stop using lie to cover up lie again all in the quest for 2015. Nigerians please be wise, don't be fooled again vote for a change

El Rufai is obviously seeking relevance at all cost. His inability to score a hit with his fictitious story book has made him a desparate who will stop at nothing to remain on the front pages of the media. HE Goodluck Ebele Jonathan remains the most competent democratic leader to rule Nigeria. El Rufai should please refrain from casting aspersions on our President. Can El Rufai win a free and fair election in his local government area? Let him show us how competent he is and run for elective office.

I still believe no man can be the president of a nation without God's backing. Remember what Davil said about King Saul, he is God appointed.

KulprinZ Anthony said...

El-Rufai is just an oppotunist.He has never won an election and will never win one.He is a typical instance of One who bites the finger that feeds him.

annie said...

Hmmm...politics! 2015 go bloody oh! Buh wat has Jonathan done about education? Apart from the new universities he opened and the skuls he built for the almajiris(which no concern me),wat has he done about asuu strike situation that has rendered all federal and state undergraduates 'schooless'? Reno boycotted that in his long note;well,that's my utmost concern! Annie sayz so!

Dat's a fact o!

Reno will also change this script played out today by the time he finds himself at the other side of the divide. Nigerian are more intelligent now than before. Our votes will not come out of the things written on the pages of newspaper rather on what we can see. Even Mr president himself can not call one names but u find solace in doing that. You are just fighting for your own pocket. No difference between you (Reno) and El-Rufai. Please spare us abegiiii.

I wonder sometimes if GEJ aides has sawdust in their heads. Gulak is a dumb head, Reno is worse,Okupe is an old fool, oghadolme is greedy,Oronto is intelligent buh lacK sense,that's wat u get wen u re in position of authority and u circle urself with ur ppl. They will never give u gud advice cos they will be scared to tell u the truth. GEJ shld not spoil our party.

At the end of the day, it all boils down to what we as individuals think about the president, not based on what anybody else says. So ask yourself this question Mr. President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Are you competent enough? Until you prove beyond every reasonable doubt that you are, there is no point defending yourself. We all can see because we are not blind!

Is dis a new portfolio " new media " i dont think dis one is any different from Abati, his write up was so petty and watery, it lacks substance, it doesnt tell well of mr president surrounding himself wit des his village kinsmen. Are des d best products his region or state can offer? too bad!

The tittle should be 'Elrufai, uncovered'. If you read the full comments of Soludo's review of the Accidental the Public Servant, you ll understand that the author is fully insane.

This Reno is too intelligent and sharp. You are doing a good job for your Master.

One thing we got to learn in all these is that revolution in this country is sure. Our leaders are pushing us to the wall and we must definitely bounce back. Things are very hard in this country. I wish they will disguise themselves and live like ordinary person to see the sufferings that their leadership has caused Nigerians. But i must say Elrufai must be brought to book by all the innocent lives he damaged by destroying peoples hard earned money without compensation due to greedy and corruption in his mind.
