Reno Omokri, former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for completing the Lagos-Ibadan railway project.
Omokri, a staunch critic of Buhari, however, stated that the project was intimated by the Jonathan’s administration.
He pointed out that Buhari’s government could have abandoned the project since they did not initiate it but decided to complete it.

“Although this project was initiated and started by the @GEJonathan government, the Buhari administration finished it. They could have abandoned it, but they did not. For that, they should be commended!”
