So this is @ChibuikeAmaechi fact-checking @PeterObi today in Kano.

Turns out virtually everything Obi said at #NGTheCandidates yesterday about #RailUPng Projects was UNTRUE.

Spending the morning on a Rice Mill in Kano. They’re reporting a massive increase in quantity (and quality) of available paddy - a lot of people have gone into farming, & milling capacity also growing fast. This rice revolution is real, people…
Local production is up significantly, but we still have some way to go until it meets all of local demand. That’s the simple reason why it’ll take some time for prices to come down to levels Nigerians are anticipating. Demand is still ahead of supply, but supply is growing fast.
MD of one of the Rice Mills in Kano tells me: “A lot of people have gone back to the farms. People are now struggling to find land to farm. Places that were uncultivated before have now turned to farms... It’s not just rice, it’s beans, maize, etc.”

VIDEO/ January 9, 2015, the then candidate of the APC, @MBuhari campaigned in Aba, Abia State. He promised a power intervention, to help unlock the entrepreneurial potential of Aba.

Today, President @MBuhari is commissioning the Ariaria Market Power Plant, an @AsoRock Initiative
Earlier this month I visited Ariaria Market and the new Power Plant. It was established on a site that used to be a garbage dump for the market. Out of that place has arisen this wonderful project. #IncrementalPower #EnergizingEconomies #PMBMeansBusiness @realREANigeria
One of the CNG-fired power generating plants at the Ariaria IPP. 4,000 shops benefiting in 1st Phase of the Electrification project. Phase 2 will add an estimated 8,000 shops.

#EnergizingEconomies is going on in several markets nationwide.

I’m currently on one of the Standard Gauge Rail Lines that the @MBuhari Administration is completing (tracks finished, stations being built). We’re traveling at about 90km per hour, AC pumping,phones charging. It’s free cos it’s still test-run phase. I have about 3 hours to go :)
