President Buhari VS Atiku
The Peoples Democratic Party has challenged President Muhammadu Buhari to a live, one-on-one debate with its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on critical sectors of national life.
The PDP also berated Buhari for allegedly neglecting Nigerian troops fighting in the North East.
A representative of the PDP said, “Nigerians are aware that Buhari has been mortally afraid of facing our candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in a general debate organised by independent bodies.
“For this, the PDP grants him the liberty to choose a venue, date and time convenient to him to face our candidate before a neutral panel.
They also said Buhari should explain why he had allegedly been ‘insensitive’ to the killings of citizens and soldiers by marauders and insurgents, particularly given allegations that he had been distracting the armed forces by dragging them to participate in his re-election campaign.
I cannot believe I have to agree with the PDP on all everything raised but these are important questions that needs to be questioned & Yes, a debate would be GREAT
Nigeria Loses $6bn from ‘Corrupt’ Oil Deal Linked to Fraud
Let’s travel to another continent, Italy Milan, a court is deliberating on Nigeria’s loss from a deal between 2 giant companies Eni & Shell that would have gotten us $6Billion.
A campaign group Global Witness has calculated the OPL 245 deal in 2011 deprived Nigeria of double its annual education and healthcare budget. Eni and Shell are accused of knowing the money they paid to Nigeria would be used for bribes.
The Italian and Anglo-Dutch energy giants deny any wrongdoing. This unfolding scandal, which is being played out in an Italian court, has involved former MI6 officers, the FBI, a former President of Nigeria, as well as current and former senior executives at the two oil companies.
I wonder if the EFCC or ICPC know about this case. #Lifeless
