Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri, has responded to Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC, for saying former President Olusegun Obasanjo has traveled more than president Muhammadu Buhari.

Adams Oshiomhole had berated critics of President Muhammadu Buhari’s constant trips abroad saying that a former President, Olusegun Obasanjo travelled more frequently than Buhari when he was in office.

He said, “Saying Mr President is involved in frequent trips is not correct. I remember very well, there is no president in recent Nigeria’s history, since 1999 till now, that travelled out of Nigeria as much as former President Olusegun Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo did.

“If you check through your newspapers and playback some of your electronic coverages, you will find where Gani Fawehinmi (of blessed memory) took time to calculate the number of days President Obasanjo was out of Nigeria, visiting foreign countries.

“He even tried to calculate the number of hours he was spending on air comparing it to the number of hours he was spending on Nigerian soil. So, how can you, that was already an adult when Obasanjo was president suggest that Buhari travel more often than other persons? That is not correct,” Mr Oshiomole told the Vanguard.

But reacting on his official twitter handle on Thursday, Omokri said Obasanjo achieved a lot each time he traveled out of the country. He said Obasanjo got debt forgiveness for the country while Buhari brought debt addition which is the main difference between them.

He tweeted, "Adams Oshiomhole should be told that Obasanjo may have traveled more than General @MBuhari, but he also achieved more, far more than Buhari. He got DEBT FORGIVENESS. Buhari brought DEBT ADDITION! Big difference.
