SOME Nigerians has questioned the move behind the recent approval of $1 billion by the National Executive Council, NEC.

States governors had approved the withdrawal of the funds from the Excess Crude Account for the ongoing fight against Boko Haram insurgents in the North-east.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo presided over the meeting where the decision was reached.

Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki disclosed this while briefing State House correspondents after the meeting.‎



Obaseki said the approval was announced by the chairman of Nigeria Governors’ Forum, NGF, and Governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari.

“The funds would be spent on the purchase of security equipment, procurement of intelligence and logistics, among others”, Obaseki said.

Already, former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has alleged that the approved fund was meant for 2019 election and not for the fight against terrorism.

While describing it as a ruse and alarming, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) alleged the manipulative plot of the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration to secure approvals without recourse to due process, and for purposes of fighting the same insurgents it claimed to have since defeated.

“If it would take a billion dollars from a nation’s savings to kill what they long claimed was dead, then we challenge the APC government to come clean and tell Nigerians the whole truth.

“We therefore call on the National Assembly to interrogate this proposed disbursement and subject it to a thorough but rapid interrogation,” a statement from it partly read.

Nigerians on micro-blogging site, twitter, has therefore reacted online.

Nigerians have been scammed by these political crooks. The money spent on this war could have been spent in educating the Almajiris using Western education. Root cause of the problem has not been solved. How did we end up with terrible leaders like this?

The money has been stolen with full legal backing.

All we can do is react like reactants.

But I refuse to be a reactant.

Simple question is can those who voted for Buhari still beat their chest and say... "I'm proud of the choice I made"?

All military chiefs will never want this Boko Haram to end. Northerners are looting our money heavily.

If you take $1 billion to fight defeated Boko Haram,. How much is Boko Haram using to fight Nigeria army. $500,000,000 dollars??

Nigerians use una brain for once. Haba who swear for una??

imagine book haram they say have been defeated
is ok
you know what pains me most is the fact that the youths have given up on the nation that is why a revolution will never occur because no youth give a fucckk anymore. we are just trying to survive
as am typing now am even at one primary school close to uniben watching niggarz play the normal monkey post football.
after this football. we all go home and look for what to eat. then relax a little and head towards any viewing centre or bet9ja centre to watch premiere league and place our little money on visual bet and soccer games just to see if we can get rich or lose our money while trying. because for everyday humans wake up from bed they are faced with a thousand way to become rich of which gambling is among.
after all these gambling today now we all returned home again. probably some of us will drink garri before sleeping and life goes on
so no Nigeria youths give a fuckkk anymore

I was amused the very day the Governors (APC governors) endorsed it.
This has a lot to do with APC in 2019.

On a more serious note, so people can be devoid of an iota of conscience? Fear God na!!! undecided
It's like kicking a dying horse.
Do you want to loot and already bankrupt nation dry??
I'm just tired.

Nothing wrong with requesting more money to finish off the insurgents.

It has already been approved. Move along now.

You can suppress the truth only for a moment but when it finaly gets out, it goes out with the force of Tsunami.

The question Zoo citizens should ask their Vegetable govt is, why budget $1 billion for a technically defeated boko haram? I remember when the chief liar of Zoogeria, liar Mohammed claimed that buhari has defeated boko haram and that all the army is doing is mop up the areas to clear boko haram haram remnants. The question begging for answer now is, do they need $1 billion to clear or mopup boko haram remnants? Vegetable govt should be awarded gold medal in lies and deception by the International Olympic committee. I have never seen a govt that lies shamelessly like this govt under buhari D Vegetable!

This one billion dollars approved has once again opened a Pandoras box on the moral eligibility of Buhari to put himself up for re-election , it throws up a lot of questions

What premise exactly would Buhari be telling the electorates to vote him on

1: Is he going to tell the he will fix refineries in 6 months like he lied to them before?

2:Is he going to tell the fuel subsidy didnt exist like he lied to them before?

3: is he going to tell them fuel importation is a fraud like he told them before?

4: Is he going to tell them that petrol should not be sold more than 40 naira litre like he lied to them before?

5: Is he going to tell them he will jail all the corrupt people in 6 months like he lied about before?

6: is he going to tell the the same lies of how he can make 1 naira equivalent to 1 dollar?

7: Is he going to tell them there will be no office of the first lady like he lied before?

8: is he going to tell the he beling to everyone and belongs to no one , a statement that has since been proven to be a white lie .

9: Is he going to tell them he will sell all the planes in Presidential fleet and cut presidency cost?

10: Is he going tell them that no govt official will be allowed to travel for Medical check up abroad like he lied about before?

11: Is he goin to tell them how he will improve security , a statement that has since been proven to be nothing but a pathological lie.

12 : Is he going to tell them there will be no sacred cow in his govt when it comes to fight against corruption?

13 : Is he going to tell them that Jonathan hid his WAEC certificate again?

Abeg oo what will Buhari use to campaign sef

[b][/b]A mad man at Nsukka Psychiatric hospital climbed a tree and spent half of the day on that tree. All of a sudden, he let go of the branch he was holding and fell straight to the ground with full force.

One of the Doctors rushed to the scene and asked him, ''Emeka what's the matter with u?"

The mad man gladly replied...
