Buhari and nepotism are inseparable, this man is not fit to be a president of a multi ethnic country like Nigeria.

The President of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim, said on Thursday that the bank had concentrated on the northern region of Nigeria in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s request.

Kim and the Managing Director, International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, who spoke at separate press conferences in Washington DC, United States, also advised Buhari to invest in. Saraki right now


things that would enhance economic growth.

Kim said, “You know, in my very first meeting with President Buhari he said specifically that he would like us to shift our focus to the northern region of Nigeria and we’ve done that. Now, it has been very difficult. The work there has been very difficult.

“I think Nigeria, of course, has suffered from the dropping oil prices. I think things are just now getting better. But the conversation we need to have with Nigeria, I think, is in many ways related to the theme that I brought to the table just this past week, which is investment in human capital. The percentage of the Gross Domestic Product that Nigeria spends on healthcare is less than one percent.”

He added, “Despite that, there is so much turbulence in the northern part of the country, and there is the hit that was taken from the drop in the oil prices. Nigeria has to think ahead and


invest in its people. Investing in the things that will allow Nigeria to be a thriving, rapidly growing economy in the future is what the country has to focus on right now.”

Kim also said, “Focusing on the northern part of Nigeria, we hope that as commodity prices stabilise and oil prices come back up, the economy will grow a bit more. But very, very much important is the need to focus on what the drivers of growth in the future will be.”

According to the World Bank boss, the bank will invest in human capital in other parts of Africa in order to prepare the continent for the next phase of growth.

Lagarde, in her remarks, said Sub-Saharan African countries, including Nigeria, had posted suboptimal


growth in recent times.

The growth figures, she said, were far too small considering the huge demographic potential of Nigeria and other countries in the region.

As a result, she said the IMF would be engaging ministers of finance and central bank governors from the region attending the annual World Bank and IMF meetings on how they could boost and stabilise economic growth.

Lagarde said, “The Sub-Saharan Africa is one region of the world where growth is suboptimal. Those countries grow at an average growth of 2.5 per cent. That is too low for the demographic expansion of the region.”

The IMF managing director said emerging and developing economies must invest more in their economies through infrastructural spending, strengthening safety nets, allowing women more access to the labour market and carrying structural reforms.

the south doesn't care anymore. at the end the North will still remain the poorest region in the country. thier elites are wicked and yes they will take advantage of the Buhari regime to bless thier accounts with wealth and marry underaged girls. because the south still remain the brain that makes the money. the entire Nigerian market system the consumer market system is dominated with southerners.

Yes, the part of the country that has been devastated by insurgency for a number of years requires attention.

PMB is too tribalistic and unfortunately not a very intelligent man...

it's a good thing he won the elections, otherwise we would have been saying "with the likes of Fashola, PMB, Nigeria would be Utopia"

This is coming from someone who supported him in 2015

I don't care if buhari does anything in the south, but what I know is that the poverty index in the north will continue to rise, after all the north have been rulling since 1960 but they don't have anything to show for it

At this rate, many will end up apologising to the Igbo for having the foresight not to vote for a divisive, clannish, and nepotistic man like Buhari as president.

Buhari is so divisive and sectional that he is not worth being more than a counselor in Daura. Making him a president was the greatest error in Nigeria politic and history
