Former President Goodluck Jonathan’s Special Assistant on New Media, Reno Omokri, Monday came down hard on President Muhammadu Buhari, describing him as a leader suffering from “a chronic case of inferiority complex”.

Omokri, who was reacting to the comments by Buhari last Friday that he did not sack the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele, when he assumed office because he wanted him to salvage the terrible economy he inherited, described the president as being economical with the truth.

The president while hosting some of his supporters at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, also alleged that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) left the country in tatters and challenged anyone to contradict his claim.

But Omokri, who said he accepted the challenge, described the president as a leader who went to the school of bad leadership to learn negative traits.

In a statement, Omokri reminded Buhari that people only compare themselves to the best, adding that the reason why he constantly has strong need to compare himself to Jonathan and former President Olusegun Obasanjo is because he suffers from inferiority complex.

The former president’s aide contended that the four habits which people do not want to see in their leaders and which President Buhari easily displays are: Complaining, comparing, criticising and condemning.

He said: “Let me remind the president that people only compare themselves to the best and the reason he has this strong psychological need to compare himself to former Presidents Jonathan and Obasanjo is because he suffers from a chronic case of inferiority complex.
