Reno Omokri, ex-aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, has welcomed a baby girl with his wife.


Atiku Abubakar, former vice-president, who broke the news in his congratulatory message on Monday, said Omokri named her Ebele, after Jonathan.

“I congratulate @renoomokri and his wife on the birth early this morning of their daughter, Ebele, named after former President @GEJonathan. Reno has always shown a loyal spirit,” Atiku wrote on Twitter.

“And when he offers friendship, that relationship is solid. I pray that his newborn child will display this virtue that her father epitomises. Once again, congratulations, and may Almighty Allah bless mother and child.”


Reacting to the news, Jonathan appreciated God for safe delivery while also commending Omokri for naming his fourth child after him.

“Congratulations to @renoomokri and his wife, on the birth of their daughter very early this morning,” he wrote on Twitter.

“I am grateful that the couple has chosen to name their daughter Ebele, after me. I thank God for the safe delivery and that mother and child are healthy and thriving.”


It is understood that the 47-year-old already has three children — two boys (twins) and a daughter — with his wife.


Omokri had earlier made the headlines after he denied allegations that he had threatened Deborah Okezie, the mother of a Deeper Life High School (DLHS) student who alleged that he was molested by senior students.
