Reacting to this, Reno Omokri wrote via his twitter handle, “when I read the story of the 72 year old Katsina man who was imprisoned yesterday for insulting General Muhammadu Buhari after bandits killed his family, this statement made by former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan came to my mind.
In 2014, President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan had said that he is the most abused and insulted President in the world but when I leave office, you will all remember me for the total freedom you enjoy under me.
We would like to know your opinion on this issue, between Jonathan and Buhari administration, which do we enjoy freedom most.
