Buhari Group Tells Jonathan To Spend The N21.27bn Campaign Donation On Electrici by Azo(m): 8:36am On Dec 23, 2014
The Buhari 2015 Support Group Centre on Sunday flayed the over N21.27bn donated to President Goodluck Jonathan by businessmen, multinationals and the Peoples Democratic Party governors to finance his 2015 presidential election campaign.

The group, in a statement on Sunday by its Director of Publicity, Dr. Chidia Maduekwe, advised the Jonathan administration to channel the money into the nation’s electricity sector.

The group is the campaign outfit of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Maj.Gen. Muhammadu Buhari. But the APC will this week inaugurate a larger campaign group, which will be headed by the Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi.

The group said it was disgraceful for the President and his party to still be talking about improving the nation’s power sector after spending over $20bn on it.

It said, “Nigerians are worse off in terms of electricity supply than they were 15 years ago.” It added that no nation had ever moved from developing to being developed by relying on generators to power its economy.

The BSGC stressed that it was most frightening when one juxtaposes the United Nations population projection of Nigeria by year 2030 (i.e 15years from today) at about 253 million and 400 million by 2050.

“The PDP-led government will only lead Nigeria into a demographic disaster with its current failed energy policy,”

It explained that Buhari and indeed, other Nigerians were right to ask ‘‘why we are still in this epileptic electricity mess after spending well over $20bn on the power sector?’’

The group said Nigerians should be ashamed that when compared to South Africa’s 40, 000MW for a population of just 50 million, their country is still struggling to generate 4,000 MW.

It also pointed out that on per capita consumption basis, Nigeria is ranked at 178th with consumption of 106.21KWh per person, a figure that is well behind Gabon’s 283.6KWh; Cameroun’s 176.0KWh and Kenya’s 128.68KWh.

The BSGC added, “The power sector featured proudly two days ago in contributing towards Mr. President Jonathan’s re-election campaign fund.

“We would have thought such funds should have been better deployed in giving Nigerians better power supply.

“When four years ago Dr. Goodluck Jonathan said he would not run in 2015, he had then promised that ‘if voted into power within the next four years, the issue of power will become a thing of the past. Four years is enough for anyone in power to make significant improvement and if I can’t improve on power within this period it then means I cannot do anything even if I am there for another four years.”

It claimed that “the ordinary Nigerian on the street knows that he or she is not better off today with electricity supply as against four years ago when Jonathan mounted the saddle.”

Just last week NNPC were still asking for their money.

Buhari wanted the Nigerian public to believe what he had said, then it might as well be good for him to concede that the allegation of a missing $2.8 billion oil money against the NNPC under his watch as minister of petroleum was true.

I am sure you either dropped out of sec school or you failed WASSCE English language. Do have chicken or fish brain making it difficult for you to comprehend The journalist meant if they could lie against him how can he believe the same type of allegation. According to the aithor of the article and I quote

"Buhari, one of the founding fathers of the NNPC who himself has tasted of the virulent but false allegations deliberately concocted to cast the corporation and the public sector management of the nation’s oil and gas industry in bad light, would be the one to allege that NNPC runs two sets of account."

Only that Buhari's allegations are true this time and not a cooked up story as was agaist him..

Please go back to school, you are a disgrace to Nigerian students only uf you are anyways.
