Ekwueme Treatment: “When Jonathan Bought A Vehicle For You, He Didn’t Announce It” – Omokri Slams Buhari

Reno Omokri, ex-aide of former President Goodluck Jonathan, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari for publicizing the overseas medical treatment approved for former Vice-President, Alex Ekwueme.

A spokesman of the president, Garba Shehu had, on Friday, announced that Buhari had directed that the ailing former vice-president be flown abroad for medical treatment.

Shehu said Buhari offered to help after receiving a brief on the medical condition of elder statesman.

But Omokri took an exception to the publicity, accusing the president of attempting to score “cheap political point”.

While saying that the overseas treatment was Ekwueme’s right, Omokri said Jonathan purchased bullet-proof cars for Buhari without announcing it.

“Treatment abroad is a right of an ex-vice president,” he wrote on his Facebook page.

“President Muhammadu Buhari didn’t do Ekwueme a favour. President Goodluck Jonathan purchased bulletproof vehicles for Buhari without announcing it.

“It is only a petty and shallow administration eager to score cheap political points with a sick man’s health that announces that the President has given the man his due!”

Ekwueme was admitted into a hospital after lapsing into coma at his Enugu residence last weekend.
