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

1. This morning we shall continue our mandate of bursting Lies. #FactsAboveLies. Our question is this: What drives the Nigerian Senate President @bukolasaraki that he must tell untruths in order to diminish the stature of PMB/PYO. Is it hate, mischief, sabotage or ignorance?
2. @bukolasaraki attacked the @Trader_Moni programme saying that it is a vote-buying exercise & he wondered why it was coming in 2018 & not 2016 & 2017? He surreptitiously also wanted to take some credit for the programme for he said "when we approved the money" meaning Budget..
3. Let us now look at the #FactsAboveLies of Saraki. Every single Budget of FGN (there are 3) Saraki deliberately caused delayed passing thereby limiting the FGN's ability to disburse timely & deliver on schedule. Not only Budgets' delay, but delays in approval of borrowing plans

Another lie busted.
1) A senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, who is a member of the Opposition party, PDP, Senator Biodun Olujimi, representing the good people of Ekiti South Senatorial district, without BOTHERING to do her due diligence nor...
2)...consult her constituents, the people she's supposed to be representing, stood in the Hallowed Chambers and told a shamefaced lie about one of the social investment programme, @Trader_Moni.
She accused the FG of politicizing the Loan.
3) Fortunately some Nigerians and the Bank Of Industry @BOINigeria which is in charge of disbursing the funds (to the petty traders @Trader_Moni, the SMEs via @MarketMoni, and the farmers via farmer Moni,) responded quickly to the allegations.

1) You have all heard this accusation: that PMB is a sectional leader.
You have heard that his appointments are skewed to the North. We decided to find out how true this is and the results are shocking.
2) Always our President has demonstrated that he is a stickler for following the law.
Let us embark on this Voyage of discovery:
3) There is a constitutional body that checks the appointments of the President to make sure they comply with Federal Character as Prescribed by the Constitution.
This institution is the Federal Character Commission (

Lie No 2 busted:

Remember the furore in the news back in August this year about Buhari's daughter being a Board member of NNPC, with a monthly salary of N6.7M?

That lie was perpetrated by PDP and it's minions, and it's propaganda online blogs like Hope For Nigeria, Scannews, (these blogs & sites publish unverifiable reports and #FakeNews).

What is verifiable is this: The members of the Board of NNPC, which includes:

Dr. Ibe Kachikwu
Dr. Maikanti Baru
Mallam Abba Kyari
Dr. John M.A Thomas
Dr. Pius O. Akinyelure
Dr. Tajudeen Umar
Mallam Mohammed Lawal
Mallam Yusuf Lawal
Alhaji Mahmoud Isa Dutse

Always Fact-check. Don't be deceived.

Did you ever wonder whether there was a $25B fraud at NNPC?
THERE WAS NO FRAUD. That is the one major lie that the PDP has tried to force on Nigerians. The Party's official spokesman boldly lied on @channelstv and was fact-checked by @AjuriNgelale.
The strategy of propagating lies of @OfficialPDPNig which is; "If you tell a big enough lie & tell it frequently enough, it will be believed" is DOA because we know that the chief proponent of such a strategy was Adolf Hitler & he was disgraced. So too shall the @OfficialPDPNig.
“Claims on social & traditional media that $25b worth of oil contracts were awarded by the NNPC or that $25b in NNPC funds is missing are both false.
“No contracts were procured by the NNPC based on the leaked memo of the Petroleum Resources Minister of State."
