President Muhammadu Buhari’s personal assistant on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has responded to a comment by former president Goodluck Jonathan on election rigging.
Jonathan was quoted to have advised Buhari against giving in to the presure of rigging the July 14 governorship election in Ekiti and subsequent elections in the country.
The former president gave the advice at the inauguration of the first bridge built by Governor Fayose of Ekiti in Ado Ekiti on Friday.
But Buhari’s aide, Onochie in a Twitter response said that Jonathan lacked the moral standing to advise Buhari having allegedly “authorised the looting of our common wealth”.
She wrote, “Watching ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, a man whose name is on the lips of looters having authorised the looting of our common wealth.
“He’s shamelessly on National TV and dared to advise President Buhari on issues bothering on the growth of democracy.
“He lacks the moral standing to speak in public.”
