Former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri says since 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari has invested more money in building infrastructure in Niger Republic than the entire Southeast region of Nigeria

The fiery US based pastor in a statement was reacting to the unfortunate marginalization of the region by Buhari led administration.

Reno said President Muhammadu Buhari awarded a $1.96 billion contract for a Kano-Niger railway last year.

Moreover, on February 26, 2020, his administration awarded another $81 million dollar contract for two roads from Jigawa and Sokoto, to Niger-Republic.

In 2018 also Buhari government signed a $2 billion deal to build a refinery in Niger Republic in partnership with their government while the total capital expenditure of his government in the entire Southeast is not even up to $500 million since 2015.

Reno further said this attitude of General Buhari is one of the chief causes of the unrest in the Southeast.

Reno Omokri however said as long as injustice is prevalent in Nigeria, peace will be very difficult. He urged President Buhari to give the Southeast region plan A, or they still go for their plan B

He said, “Since 2015, General Muhammadu Buhari has invested more money building infrastructure in Niger Republic, than in the entire Southeast. Do not take my word for it. Please fact check me. He awarded a $1.96 billion contract for a Kano-Niger railway last year.

“On February 26, 2020, the Buhari administration awarded an $81 million dollar contract for two roads from Jigawa and Sokoto, to Niger-Republic.

“In 2018, the Buhari regime also signed a $2 billion deal to build a refinery in Niger Republic in partnership with their government. Yet, the total capital expenditure of this government in the Southeast is not even up to $500 million since 2015.

“This is one of the chief causes of the unrest in the Southeast.

“As long as injustice is pervasive in Nigeria, peace will be elusive in Nigeria. Give the Southeast Plan A, or they still go for their Plan B (apologies to Pastor Paul Adefarasin).”
