Former aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has mocked President Buhari by saying he likes the President’s method of fighting corruption after the EFCC withdrew from Senator Danjume Goje’s case.

On Friday, the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation took over the case of alleged N25 billion fraud filed against Former Gombe State Governor, Senator Danjuma Goje from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. 

This development occurred after Goje withdrew from the Senate President race after a meeting with the President who is said to prefer Farouk Lawan as a candidate.

This has prompted raised eyebrows from many including Reno who felt there was foul play at work. 

For almost eight years, the EFCC had been prosecuting the former governor until Friday. The case, which is before Justice Babatunde Quadiri of Jos Federal High Court II, has even gone to the Jos Court of Appeal over the remaining two counts out of the 21 charges filed against him by EFCC.

Reacting to the new development, Reno Omokri says,

‘Danjuma Goje withdraws from the Senate President’s race in favour of Buhari ‘s anointed candidate, Farouk Lawan, and the next day the EFCC withdraws from his corruption case. I like the way Buhari fights corruption!’.
