Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has said that anyone who believes that President Tinubu used public funds to pay for the 1411 delegates who travelled to Dubai for the COP28 climate summit with him, has "below-average intelligence".

He said this in defence of Tinubu following the outrage from Nigerians in the amid the hard economy.

On Sunday, December 3, Omokri wrote on his social media page;

"If you actually believe that President Tinubu used public funds to pay for 1400 Nigerians to be on his entourage to #COP28, then you have below-average intelligence.

Are these not the same lies that @SaharaReporters told you and made you vote out President Jonathan, only to start suffering under Buhari, and only for Buhari to arrest and detain the same Sowore, whose lies enabled him to become President?

Now, Sowore is trending #FreeSowore. It is alright to hate President Tinubu. But at least engage your brain before believing every propaganda you see from notoriously dishonest media like @arisetvafrica and Sahara Reporters."

There has been widespread of anger from Nigerians who took to social media to express their disappointment at the level of spending by President Bola Tinubu.

As a result, the presidency has debunked claims that the government catered for the over 1400 Nigerian delegates reported to be in Dubai for the Climate Change Conference.
