Osinbajo’s Speech At The Platform: 10 Things We Learned From The Vice President by presidency: 2:02pm On May 05, 2017
10 Things We Learned From Vice President Osinbajo’s Speech at The Platform event organised by Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos on May 1, 2017


1. From the point of view of the recession, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Inflation is slowing; government revenues are being boosted through fiscal discipline and tax reforms; fiscal, monetary, FX and trade policies are being aligned.

2. Through the CBN’s Anchor Borrowers Program the Federal Government has been able to provide financing for the production of about 5 million tons of rice so far. The goal is for Nigeria to produce all its rice locally by the end of 2018.

3. By improving fertilizer supply, and fertilizer application methods, farmers have seen crop yields double from 2 tons per hectare to 4.5 to 5 tons per hectare (up to 9 tons per hectare in some states).

4. Fertilizer is now N5,500 per bag, roughly half its usual price, thanks to the Presidential Fertilizer Initiative — which has also so far created 50,000 direct jobs and 120,000 indirect jobs.

5. The Federal Government has registered 60% of civil servants on the Integrated Personal Payroll Information System (IPPIS), and removed 58,350 ghost-workers from the payroll, resulting in savings of N92.47bn between January 2016 and April 2017.

6. Through the CBN’s Anchor Borrowers programme, the Federal Government is providing financing for hundreds of thousands of farmers. On the back of this, local rice production has almost tripled. In 2016, Nigeria imported only a tenth of the volume of rice it imported in 2015

7. One of the key ambitions of the Muhammadu Buhari Administration is to ensure that Nigerians grow what we eat and make what we use.

8. The Federal Government has set aside N50bn for improving existing Special Economic Zones and establishing new ones, to support industrialization.

9. Through the reform work of the Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC), the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) is implementing reforms that have made the process of business registration easier and faster.

10. To improve power supply, the Federal Government has approved N701bn as payment guarantee to Generation Companies and Gas Producers.

We were more concerned about the Vegetable hiding in Aso rock that we didn't know Osibanjo was even there.



Peter Obi has made the Platform his campaign ground so Osibanjo should go to Punch or SR and continue to feed his BMC crew his lies

So which of the participants told the most lies? Min Fin Adeosun, VP Osinbajo or Ex-Governor Peter Obi?

Who came to the stage without notes to spew stats that he dug out from his backside and didn't care that most of them were half-truths, ballat lies and outdated reports?

Please lets be serious here

I enjoyed his speech btw, showed he's a professor. Held his own really, really well. But the cherry on the cake was M. Peter Obi's speech.

In other news, sunday looming in France ... Président Emmanuel Macron ou Présidente Marine Le Pen?

Ok

"To improve power supply, the Federal Government has approved N701bn as payment guarantee to Generation Companies and Gas Producers."
(BIG FRAUD)

- Is this supposed to be refund to the Investors that bought NEPA?
- Any one accusing Obasanjo of spending too much in NEPA should compare notes with this N701bn and decide.

Useless government grin

Ok, 90 something billion saved from wiping out of ghost workers and federal civil servants still get owed and in most cases their salaries get cut.

You saved the billions into your pocket or for papers?

Anyone can reel out sweet well prepared speech, especially politicians, na work for ground matter. Not just work but work that has an impact positively on the common man. Every other thing is oversized BS.
