Reno Omokri, the former media aide to Goodluck Jonathan, former President, has issued a savage response to the claim of Lai Mohammed, Minister of Information and Culture, that Nigeria is fast becoming a destination for tourists because of the favourable policies of the Muhammadu Buhari administration.

“There is no doubt that Nigeria is fast becoming a destination of choice for international tourists, thanks to the country’s hospitable people, the country’s increasingly-high rating in the international community and the successes achieved by the present administration in ensuring the security of lives and property, as well as providing infrastructure such as power, roads, and rail,” Mohammed’s media aide, Segun Adeyemi, had quoted him as saying on Monday while receiving the organisers and contestants of Miss Polo International Beauty Pageant at his office in Abuja on Monday.

“The administration’s visa on arrival policy is also helping in making Nigeria a destination of choice for tourists and business people in general. The federal government will continue to pursue those policies that are fast turning Nigeria into a destination of choice; enhancing security, building infrastructure, implementing the tourism master-plan, and strengthening the visa on arrival policy.”

But Omokri asked Mohammed to stop lying, referencing the Canadian government’s recent travel advisory against Nigeria.

“’Nigeria fast becoming the destination of choice for tourists’ — Lai Mohammed,” he tweeted. “But why will Lai Mohammed not respect his old age and stop lying! On August 8, 2018, the Canadian Government issuer a travel advisory against Nigeria under Buhari and this LIAR says this! #RenosDarts.”
