Buhari Asked Us To Focus On Northern Nigeria — World Bank Chief by sarrki(m): 1:21am On Oct 13, 2017
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


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 UN sec. gen. said that Nigeria( North) needs to focus on human development to drive the economy.
He is also diplomatically calling the President partial but dumb.
He is saying the appropriate index should not be aids alone, but people. But they wouldn't understand.
Anyway, their life, their problem.
Let no body complain when a southern President does the same.

What else do you possibly expect from a northern regional president who views every other part of the country with contemptuous disdain ? It's a fact that he hasn't deemed it necessary to visit any other region of the country especially the SS & SE since he assumed power but his days are numbered on that throne, by 2019 he shall be kicked out of Aso rock like a burst football and shoved to the ICC to answer to charges of genocide against unarmed Nigerians Insha'Allah cool

It doesn't come as a surprise that he'd demand focus to be on the North only. It is those that blinded themselves to his sectional nepotism and tribalism that might just smell the coffee but unfortunately, their crested zombieship has condemned us to this madness.

Will they listen and learn? No, they will keep supporting and like rabid dogs, attack those who don't.

This explains why we are ignoring crude oil refinement to go in search of northern crude oil first - a gamble in time of scarcity. Let the north discover theirs if the south won't allow northerners sheepishly transfer it Kaduna to refine. The southerners can't bomb the financial pipelines that carry the funds unlike raw crude.
This is why we must restructure on time.
