Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Saturday said at no time did he sack Mr Remo Omokri while he was in office
The Ex-President in a statement by his media aide, Ikechukwu Eze, said Reno Omokri served Nigeria meritoriously throughout his tenure.
“Our attention has been drawn to comments by an online blogger to the effect that former President Goodluck Jonathan sacked Reno Omokri, his erstwhile Special Assistant on New Media, while he was in office.
“For the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that at no time did former President Jonathan ever sack Mr Omokri while he was in office.
“Mr. Omokri was appointed on August 17, 2011, and served meritoriously until May 29, 2015,” Eze said.
The former President added that his record of service can be verified at the office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation.
The statement added although Mr Omokri was no longer a staff member of President Jonathan, “he enjoys the gratitude of many Nigerians including Dr Goodluck Jonathan for his patriotic services to Nigeria.”
