JINXES BROKEN BY THE MUHAMMADU BUHARI ADMINISTRATION—PRESIDENCY

A giant-sized jinx was broken recently when the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) announced a first Net Profit in the 44-year history of the organization. Under President Muhammadu Buhari, who doubles as Minister for Petroleum Resources, the oil conglomerate announced a first-ever profit of N287 billion. Such had never happened before.
But that was by no means the only major jinx broken in the lifetime of the Buhari administration. They abound. And here are just some of them. The list is by no means exhaustive:

Policies and legislation:

*Petroleum Industry Bill signed into law in 2021, after almost two decades in the works. It is aimed at reforming a Petroleum Act dating back to 1969, as well as other supplementary laws and regulations.

*Deep Offshore and Inland Basin (Production Sharing Contracts) Act, 2019, amended for the first time since 1993.

*More than 6 billion dollars of inherited Cash Call Arrears now being cleared by the Buhari Administration, since 2016. More than 3 billion dollars of the arrears (payments due to International Oil Companies) have since been paid.

*The Buhari Administration has overseen the first successful Marginal Fields Bid Round in almost 20 years.

*The Buhari Administration has launched the first National Social Investment Programme in the country’s history. Today it is the largest Social Investment Programme in Africa and one of the largest in the world.

*Restoration of the Federal Budget to a January-to-December cycle, after more than a decade.

*The Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) was established in 2011, and for its first seven years did not have an enabling Act of the National Assembly — Until 2018 when President Buhari assented to the NCDC Act.

*Nigeria Police Act, 2020: The first overhaul of the Police Act since it was originally enacted in 1943

*Nigeria Correctional Service Act, 2019 - overhauled the existing Prisons Act, almost 50 years after it was first enacted.

*Finance Acts 2019 and 2020 - the first time ever that Federal Budgets are being accompanied by dedicated and specific reform legislation, to support implementation.

*Suppression of Piracy and Other Maritime Offences Bill (SPOMO), 2019: The first of its kind in the entire Gulf of Guinea, dedicated to prosecuting maritime offences.

*Police Trust Fund Act, 2019: First-ever legislation dedicated to addressing the financing of the Police Force

*CAMA, 2020 - the first overhaul of the Company and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) in 30 years.

*Discrimination Against Persons With Disabilities (Prohibition) Act, 2018: Another unprecedented piece of legislation in Nigeria

*Treasury Single Account (TSA) started in 2012, expanded across the entire Government by President Buhari

Projects

*Itakpe-Warri Rail Line, started in 1987, abandoned for decades, and finally completed in 2020

*Completion of four standard gauge railway projects between 2016 and 2021: Abuja-Kaduna Rail Line, Abuja Metro Line, Itakpe-Warri Rail Line and Lagos-Ibadan Rail Line.

*President Buhari is the first President to start and complete a rail project in Nigeria’s history (Lagos-Ibadan Rail).

*The last NLNG Train project (Train 6) was completed in 2008. President Buhari has successfully flagged off Train 7 construction.

*Apapa-Oshodi-Oworonshoki Expressway, undergoing full reconstruction for the first time since it was constructed in the late 1970s.

*Bodo-Bonny Bridges and Road: Construction finally kicked off in 2017, after several decades of planning, and three false starts.

*The long-awaited Ogoni Clean-Up kicked off under the Buhari Administration.

*The Nigerian Navy has this year (2021) acquired its first new Landing Ship Tank (LST) in more than 40 years.

*The Nigerian Air Force has enjoyed the largest investment in fleet renewal in decades, under President Buhari, acquiring more than two-dozen new aircraft since 2016.

*Construction of the first full-scale private refinery and the first privately financed Deep Sea Port in Nigeria’s history both started under President Buhari’s watch.

*Only one Modular Refinery in the country pre-2016. Since 2018, there have been several either under construction or already completed.

*Maritime University, Delta State, licensed by the NUC and operationalized in 2018

*Completion, since 2016, of twelve (12) inherited Dam projects across the country: Kashimbila Multipurpose Dam, Taraba; Ogwashi-Uku Multipurpose Dam, Delta; Adada Dam, Enugu; Sulma Earth Dam, Katsina; Gimi Earth Dam, Kaduna; Amla-Otukpo Dam, Benue; Amauzari Earth Dam, Imo; Ibiono-Ibom Earth Dam, Akwa Ibom; Gadau/Lafia Zigau Dam, Bauchi; Alajue Small Earth Dam, Osun; Kampe Omi Dam, Kogi (Rehabilitation) and Kargo Dam, Kaduna (Rehabilitation)

PDP Dundees, go and ask your Poverty Development Party why they abandon 13 000 projects in Niger Delta, after collecting 90% of the money. Stop attacking the President that's completing your abandoned projects.

The joke of a presidency added the controversial PIB as one of the jinxes it broke.

I am more interested in the ethnic cleansing going on across Nigeria, particularly Benue and Southern Kaduna and how the same abomination of a government has empowered terrorists and bandits across the length of Northern Nigeria.

Lol, shameless lots!

Nigeria and Nigerians never had it this bad, in all ramifications, and someone is typing sh*t about breaking jinxes.

I hope they know that the NEGATIVE jinxes broken by Buhari outweighs the positive ones?

They broke the jinx of making Nigeria a poverty capital.

Making Naira to dollar 530 from 200.... Not to talk of Euro and pounds.

Making Nigeria a terrorists hub and making the kidnapping of students normal, which is actually not normal.


Making people develop feat traveling to some parts of the country.

Making youths jobless..... Frustrating startups.

Many many Jinx grin grin



When you don't have anything to show as achievement, then you will be listing irrelevant jinx broken.

Talk about the major 3, economy, security, job creation and tell us the jinx you've broken.....

The writer (Femi) is right. Booboo has broken the corruption record that seemed impossible in the military era.

Every negative record one can ever think of have been broken by the Chief Bandit.
