The social media aide to the Nigerian President, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie has taken a swipe at former president Goodluck Jonathan for “abandoning” the Niger Delta region throughout his stay in office.
Onochie, who disclosed this on her Twitter handle, said that while Jonathan abandoned Niger Delta region, his people, President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, APC, made a change, even as a Muslim.
She tweeted: “Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, a Christian, PhD, and core Niger Delta son, led this nation for six years. The Niger-Delta has little or nothing to show for it.
“Otuoke, his own village, had no road leading to it nor water. Along with water, the road has only been constructed by the administration of Muhammadu Buhari, a man so much hatred has been galvanized against in the Niger Delta.
“But the people know better and they know who their leader is. They know the one who truly loves them; they know the one who cares about them; they know the one that is bringing development to their region; they know the one who is fighting their corner; they know it is President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Even Goodluck Jonathan Expressway was abandoned. Thank God for Completer general, President Buhari who completed the road.Now, commuters are a lot happier because it has eased the traffic logjam occasioned by the non-completion of the road.”
