I deliberately did not make comments yesterday during the #2019Debate, I took my time to Fact Check some of the claims of your PASTOR Vice President, @ProfOsinbajo and discovered he lied back to back. Thread !
The APC VP candidate, @ProfOsinbajo claimed Nigeria Is producing 7000 Megawatts of Electricity (FALSE !)
According to the umbrella body of the electricity distribution company in Nigeria..
Association of Nigerian Electricity Distributors (ANED), While there is an available capacity of 7,000MW, what Nigeria presently generates is no more that 5,000MW. This is because there is insufficient gas to power the thermal plants due to gas line limitations.
Osinbajo claimed Nigeria produces 90% of the rice it consumes (False !)
Despite the APC government’s promised agricultural revolution, Nigeria is still perceived to the world’s highest importer of rice according to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Also, Rice farmers in Nigeria have recently reported a drop in output since last year due to higher input costs, insecurity and widespread flooding in the main growing regions.
Osinbajo claimed Cost of fertilizer has reduced (False)
In a July report, Business Day newspaper reported the average fertilizer prices across the states increased with Urea rising by 0.64% & SSP recording an increase of 4.67% compared to average fertilizer prices of June, 2018.
Osinbajo claimed Nigeria is one of the fastest growing economies (False!)
A World Economic Forum GDP forecast for 2017 listed Ethiopia, Tanzania, and Djibouti as the only african countries in it's world’s fastest growing economies list. Nigeria did not make the list.
Osinbajo claimed Nigeria has built six innovation hubs (Unverifiable)
While speaking at the launch of the NorthEast Innovation Hub in Yola in June, Professor Osinbajo stated that the Federal Government would establish six innovation hubs across the country...
but yesterday Osinbajo said the FG had established six of such hubs. However, this claim remains unverifiable as there is no report in the media to back this claim that six innovation hubs have been built by the government. .
Imagine what their next level will be if they have nothing to show for the first one with all the funds they have expended and the debts they have incurred. I understand why Osinbajo had to tell so much lie, it's a difficult task to market a bad product. We need a #BetterNigeria
