Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, has agreed that former President Goodluck Jonathan actually made millionaires during his time, but that this was done through stealing.
Onochie was reacting to the freezing of 21 accounts allegedly belonging to Stella Oduah, a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and former minister under Jonathan.
“Oh yea, Ex-Pres. Jonathan made many millionaires. Princess Stella Oduah was one of the more than 40 alleged thieves. They allegedly stole their ways to wealth,” Onochie, the personal assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media, said.

She wondered how much could be in the 21 accounts frozen by a high court in Lagos.
He accused the former president of watching idly while “these kleptomaniacs freely helped themselves to our commonwealth.
“But she (Oduah) sits comfortably in our hallowed chamber, summoning and investigating. Another word for hallowed is holy!”
She added that in 2016 which she called the year of recession, the current administration has been able to create 88,000 rice farmers in Kebbi state alone making them millionaires.
“Most were not worth ₦100,000 before then. There are new millionaires in Gombe, Ebonyi, Enugu, Abia state, etc. That's how to create millionaires, the Buhari way.
“In 2017, there will be more millionaires as more states have joined the Anchor Borrowers Programme and other millionaire-making schemes.
“President Buhari is teaching us again, that hard work pays. That's the change Nigerians voted for. Let the whistlers continue to blow!” She said.
