- Reno Omokri says ex-President Jonathan was voted out in 2015 by foreigners
- Omokri says Muhammdu Buhari came into power on the strenght of non-Nigerians who voted in the northeast
- The former presidential aide says his claim is based on comments by two governors from the northern region
Former special aide to Ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Pastor Reno Omokri, has said that his principal was ousted from power in 2015, by non-Nigerians.
The clergy made the assertion via a Facebook post.
Omokri said based on the comments of two governors from the north, Almajiris did most of the voting within the region, and because the Almajiris have been regarded as foreigners, then it is not out of place to say that foreigners voted Jonathan out.
The post reads: "Two Governors of Kano have inadvertently exposed the smoking gun proving that contrary to the Electoral Act, foreigners were illegally used to win elections in Kano and other states.
On April 13 2015, then Kano Governor, Rabiu Kwankwaso, speaking live to Channels TV (he can't claim to be misquoted) said, 'Almajiri votes were used to kick Jonathan out of the villa.'
Fast forward to April 7 2017 and current Governor of Kano while speaking at the Kaduna Investment Summit said 'we discovered from our survey is that many of these Almajiris come from Niger Republic, some from Chad, Northern Cameroon'.
If according to Kwankwaso, Almajiris were used to win the 2015 elections and if according to Ganduje, most of them are foreigners, it means non Nigerians decided the 2015 elections.
This is particularly crucial considering that President Buhari got his highest votes from Kano, Kaduna and Katsina in that order and these are the three states with the highest number of almajiri!"
