Does he tell us the truth about his age, background and how he made his money! Is this man healthy enough at 86 to take up the task of a totally run down country?”

Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has described as Jihad against Christians the decision of APC presidential flag bearer to name Nasir El-Rufai as his campaign Director General.
