Did You Missed President Muhammadu Buhari‘s chat with the media yesterday? Well here are some highlights of some of the president’s remarks that have got people talking:

  • We may have to send the young unemployed youth seeking the N5,000 fee to farm to earn the money
  • I have declared my assets four times
  • We have documents showing that Nigerian crude oil was diverted and proceeds from the oil were diverted to private individuals
  • When I say the war [against Boko Haram] has been technically won, I meant their capacity to carry out conventional attack has weakened
  • There are evidences of treasonable felony against Nnamdi Kanu
  • Nigeria is not borrowing again but renegotiating with creditors
  • I cannot see the NASS spending N45billion to buy cars on top of the transport allowance they collect
  • The cost of petrol is so low, you don’t have to subsidize it
  • Wearing of hijab may be banned if the suicide bombing continues
  • There is no reliable intelligence on the location and state of the Chibok girls
  • I don’t think I picked anybody (as Minister) that I know will embarrass my government
  • By the end of first quarter of 2016 we will be informing Nigerians of what progress has been made
