What exactly is it with Buhari, FX & CBN?

Am I the only one who sees the dangers in the Nation's Central Bank taking direct orders from The President, regardless of the negative economic impact such orders may bring about? Is the CBN now an agency of the presidency?

Thread👇
Before I address this particular new order 👆, I would like to provide a historical perspective to this matter by presenting the documented, destructive & dire consequences of Buhari's past ill advised incursions into the running of CBN's FX policies

The time is 1984. Buhari,...
..upon taking over power instituted many draconian economic policies that made life hellish for the citizens of this country. I'm not talking about soldiers whipping & forcing Nigerians to frog jump at bus stops.

He decreed product prices, restricted FX, and changed the Naira

Q: Now that Ministerial nominees have been screened & confirmed, what next?

A: Good question. Before they are sworn-in & allocated portfolios by the President, they have some reading & studying ahead of them. And then a 2-day Induction, to be presided over by PMB.

#Thread
Recall that in March 2019, after the elections, Pres @MBuhari set up an Audit Committee on Federal Government Policies, Programmes and Projects, chaired by VP @ProfOsinbajo, with CoS, SGF, HoCSF, and a number of Ministers and other senior govt officials
That committee worked between March and May to produce a detailed report on the first four years of the Administration, taking submissions from MDAs (who were given a submission deadline of April 24):

So, 56 days after Inauguration day for his 2nd Term, @Mbuhari finally sent his #MinisterialList to @NGRSenate yesterday, which has with alacrity begun the #ministerialscreening today. #TheList can be mined for all kinds of data but some of its demographics are quite interesting
The combined age of the 43 on the #MinisterialList is 2,552 yrs. In a country with median age of 19 & lifeexpectancy hovering around 51, the average age of #TheList is 59.35 yrs. At 73, Kano's Sabo Nanono is the oldest nominee. He's one of 5 #MinisterialNominees aged 70 or more.
In addition to Nanono, Dr. Osagie Ehanire (Edo, 72); Gen. Bashir Magashi (Kano, 70); Alh. Mohammed Abdullahi, former SSG of Nassarawa State (70); & Sen. Tayo Alasoadura (Ondo, 70) are the other septuagenarians on #TheList.

Good afternoon Sirs @dawisu & @BashirAhmaad
I should be congratulating you both on the victory of @MBuhari & @ProfOsinbajo.
The unfortunate thing is that you chose the period of celebrating the success to send forth your DIVISIVE tweets attacking the South West.
#PriceOfWisdom
There is something called the #PriceOfWisdom & it is not proper ib the hands of fools because they will not have heart to contain it, it is call CAPACITY.
Did @dawisu choose the outcome of 2019 Presidential election to attack the entire South West & @BashirAhmaad did same? SHAME
This is not the 1st time that @BashirAhmaad will embarrass yhe same @MBuhari he is an SA to, so I'm not surprised at that.
But that this foolishness started from @dawisu is my own personal issue here.....
I think I overrated you Sir.
#PriceOfWisdom
You actually tweeted that??

LEAVE ATIKU ALONE, GO AND BEG NIGERIANS

All these people, including several high-powered delegations, "begging" Atiku Abubakar to accept this brazen subversion of the wishes of Nigerians seem not to understand that the issue has gone beyond @atiku.

#Thread
As it stands now, @atiku is a mere representation of the collective aspiration of the people for a #BetterNigeria.
These people/delegations should channel their "beggings" to the appropriate quarters. They should go and beg the millions of Nigerians @MBuhari screwed up. The dozens that were tragically killed in the mad quest to retain power.

WHY @MBUHARI IS THE BEST MORAL CHOICE AS PRESIDENT

Choices are rights but that doesn't mean they can't be either good or bad.
Personally, I take a deep approach to my choice of leaders because their actions and inactions affect the way I live directly and indirectly.
My right to choose doesn't obviate the responsibility of making a right choice. 

I think what some Nigerians aren't doing is really taking a painstaking look at the responsibility attached to their right to choose.
I have also seen how many now try desperately to undermine the calamitous effect of corruption. We shouldn't. 

For every kobo taken from healthcare infrastructure, millions of Nigerians died. 

For every kobo taken from road infrastructure, millions of Nigerians died,

The EFCC has begun a crackdown on Atiku associates - they started this evening with Uyi Giwa-Osagie, his lawyer, after searching his house for 7 hours, finding nothing, they took him away - no warrant to search, no warrant to arrest.

This is the #NextLevel of #TyrantBuhari
Said it before that as #TyrantBuhari gets more desperate, the rights of citizens would be further trampled upon and its starting already:

Targeting Atiku’s Lawyer without any warrant and probably getting ready to go after more people who support Atiku.

Desperate. Jittery.
I hear more people around Atiku will also be arrested tomorrow via the DSS and the EFCC - four days to Elections.

These people are determined not to play fair and the more they see that Nigerians are against them, the more they become authoritarian but Nigeria will win.

Hello everyone. What a run it has been!
Our Presidential Campaign has run its full course. From North to South, East to West, we have taken the #NextLevel message to all the 36 states and the FCT.
In every state we visited, in every region, our projects (completed & ongoing) and programmes made the people extremely receptive to our message.
Be it road construction/rehabilitation, rail construction, electricity generation, housing projects, Social Investment Programmes, etc, every state is experiencing one or more of these projects & programmes.

MUST READ THREAD: What #Nextlevel means: Four years ago, we promised Nigerians real change – in what we do and how we do it. Nigerians sent a clear message in the last election, and our platform offered a new, ambitious plan for a secure, prosperous and corruption-free country.
We have worked hard to fulfil our promises - and while the road may have been difficult, over the last three and a half years, we have laid the foundations for a strong, stable and prosperous country for the majority of our people.
Foundational work is not often visible, neither is it glamorous - but it is vital to achieving the kind of country we desire.

I decided to play with INEC data as regards #NigeriaDecides2019

Assumptions

1. 80% PVC collection rate
2. 50% votes will be cast (Voter apathy etc)
3. 2015 voting trend & present realities

Based on the above, this is my forecast

APC - 21,354,041
PDP - 12,247,592

Breakdown 👇
This is how things MAY possibly play out in the South-South region of Nigeria. #NigeriaDecides2019 #NextLevel
This is how things MAY possibly pan out in the South-West region of Nigeria. #NigeriaDecides2019 #NextLevel

1. Today we focus on Infrastructure development under PMB/PYO & review the past, the present & #NextLevelNigeria
Where we were:
Nigeria had huge infrastructure deficit. Decades of underinvestment & inadequate allocations led to underdevelopment of backbone of a modern economy-
2. In 2014, the GEJ Govt spent these sums on the following sectors: Transport (N14 billion), Agriculture & Water (N34 billion), Power, Works & Housing (N106 billion). Grossly inadequate, a lot of infrastructure projects were left abandoned and contractors unpaid. #NigeriaDecides
3. PMB committed to initiating & completing key infrastructure projects &demonstrated this through budgetary allocations & fund-raising & ensuring the plugging of leakages & cutting out waste, the government has been able to re-direct money into infrastructure & capital projects

thisdaylive.com/index.php/2016… Tax Evasion thru transfer pricing recorded its peak during Pdp years. Transfer pricing occurs when multinationals establish subsidiaries & use them to transfer profits from locations of operation to low tax jurisdictions. Denying host countries due tax.
saharareporters.com/2015/10/26/how…. Is an example of transfer pricing. Global trade has created mechanisms promoting predatory profiteering, widening economic|social|opportunity inequalities & sowing conflicts. France is presently embroiled in a 12th wknd of street protests rooted in these.
huffingtonpost.com/joseph-e-stigl…. Multinationals have rigged Trade Agreements allowing them profit & exploiting countries with weak governance structures even when they’re part of a dispute that stalls a projects progression. It’s a known corporate trick advancing predatory profiteering.

Dear President @MBuhari, welcome to #Anambra - your state of campaign rallies

If everything happens as planned Mr. President, you will set your feet in Anambra - your state of campaign rallies - today.

#Thread
#PMBInAnambra
Your Excellency, before you came back to become an elected president of the Federal Republic, there were dozens of events that offered you compelling reasons to pay visit to the Light of the Nation, but you found excuses to stay away.
#PMBInAnambra
Dim Odumegwu Ojukwu died and was buried. Leaders from all over the world poured in to Nnewi, Anambra State, to pay their last respect. You were nowhere to be found.

We lost our very own erudite Prof. Chinua Achebe, you couldn't care less, Your Excellency.

There was a lady in a serious and committed relationship with a guy who she started dating after series of bad relationship. This guy was not perfect but he listened to her & made adjustments when she complains over something that hurts her. He never brought up her past failed
relationships. The lady inherited a lot of wealth but couldn't manage it so she put him in charge. She gave him complete control on the condition that he is fair to her family even as he helps his own family. Things were not always smooth, but he was willing to learn & grow with
Her & he achieved a lot with what she had because he knew they had a shared destiny. She also knew he'd adjust if ever she complained over anything she didn't like because she had done so countless times. They were making steady progress. Then an ex came into the scene.

Is The ERGP working?

Since President Buhari inagurated the ERGP team in 2017, a number of successes have been recorded in.

Thread!!!

#ERGPisworking
Inflation rates have maintained their declining trend for 18 consecutive months. From a peak of 18.7% in January 2017, inflation started trending downwards to 11.26% by August 2018.

#ERGPisworking
nairametrics.com/2018/08/15/inf…
After 18 months of steady decline, the inflation rate rose steadily for two months, analysts also predicted inflation to rise for a third consecutive month but their predictions were wrong as inflation dropped again.

Hanging out over the weekend with @GhenhisKhan, @stjudendukwe and @kamenchukso, we decided since we’re all in Abuja, we could go by road to visit @adeyanjudeji in Kano Prison where he’s being detained by the Buhari regime.

Yesterday morning we set out and did just that.
A few people know that Deji and I had fallen out here on Twitter a couple of times over perspectives on issues relating to PDP which he had left and which he then took to criticising publicly.

We had to agree with @MrStanleyNwabia’s intervention to block each other on twitter.
Visiting him yesterday, I was reminded of the solidarity we once shared and the continued love of country inspite of difference in approach - one thing no one can say about Deji is that he doesn’t love Nigeria, which is exactly why he dislikes Buhari and sometimes PDP.

APC and Tolu are trying to be clever by half.

This is the domain info.

Please focus on the items underlined in red
We did some more digging on the registrant of apc.com.ng , a chap called Shola Erobgobgo.

We found the guys is MD/CEO of a company called Paramountweb

This circulated last night on WhatsApp and I dismissed it; only to find this morning that it had gone far.

A check on the website link below produced the second screenshot - just few minutes ago and I’m actually worried about the implication of this.

apc.com.ng/manifesto/#145…
Basically, the APC took an American campaign document, copied it and pasted it as their #NextLevel manifesto for the 2019 elections.

This action is not only a disgrace but a confirmation that the APC has absolutely ZERO RESPECT for Nigeria and Nigerians.

None.
Zilch.
Zero.
APC is a party that doesn’t take governance seriously - how do you go and copy a manifesto from America as your #NextLevel plan for Nigeria?

They don’t take us seriously and Nigerians must take this as a confirmation of their attitude towards us, it is an attitude of disdain.
