Apparently, nobody appears to have been sanctioned within the Nigeria Excessive Fee, London or the Federal Ministry of Overseas Affairs, greater than two years after alerting them to the foregoing failings. The president’s comment in Imo State made me to test the web site throughout and behold the shocker remains to be there! Nobody cares within the Federal Ministry of Data.
Not too long ago whereas on an official go to to Imo State, President Muhammadu Buhari lamented that his administration is below reported. Mr President additional added that those that are anticipated to publicise the achievements of the administration will not be doing so; subsequently he has to do it. The information within the media concerning the administration is generally adverse. It’s because the philosophy of the purveyors is that excellent news will not be information. Subsequently, authorities companies should take duty as a result of they’re paid to take action.
On 11 July, 2020 I wrote an essay titled “The Unlucky Official Misrepresentation that Nigeria Nonetheless Endures!” within the PREMIUM TIMES and The Guardian of 16 July, 2020 printed it with the title: “Official misrepresentation of Nigeria.” This essay was on the negligence of Nigeria’s two premier international missions: Nigeria Excessive Fee in London and Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in Washington DC. Each missions had no info on the then five-year outdated Buhari administration. The Nigeria Excessive Fee web site’s historical past of Nigeria ended with President Umar Musa Yar’Adua, and no point out of President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. It didn’t point out any of the financial programmes of the administration, such because the Nationwide Financial Restoration and Development Plan 2017-2020 or the newer Financial Sustainability Plan however the Seven Level Agenda of President Yar’Adua. No point out of the post-COVID efforts of the administration.
The Nigeria Excessive Fee eliminated the historical past part that terminated with the Yar’Adua Administration and changed it with no different entry. However sadly as at 19 September, the entry ‘Overview of the Economic system’ doesn’t even recognise the present governor of the Central Financial institution of Nigeria. It’s because it’s nonetheless discussing the financial problems with 2008-2009, that are 13 years out-of-date, with complete disregard of the present realities going through the nation: “In response to the governor of the Central Financial institution of Nigeria Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, inflation declined from 15.1% on the finish of 2008 to 11.1% on the finish of July 2009”. That is even if the present governor of the Central Financial institution has acquired a number of awards from journalists, who apparently haven’t executed any due diligence to tell him that some of the necessary international missions of Nigeria doesn’t even recognise him.
What concerning the Central Financial institution of Nigeria the place billions are spent on varied programmes and tasks, which have impacted on the lives of many poor individuals and but stay below reported? … Rice and maize manufacturing have risen due to the insurance policies of the Buhari administration, main Nigeria to sustainable crop manufacturing and ultimately meals safety… Is it not price reporting?
As well as, the web site of the Nigeria Excessive Fee, London’s ‘Overview of the Economic system’ has nothing concerning the social funding programme of the Buhari administration. This programme is essentially the most encompassing within the nation’s historical past and it has modified the lives of tens of millions of individuals. The web site solely discusses the poverty alleviation programme of the Obasanjo administration: “In January 2001, the federal government introduced a brand new poverty discount programme the Poverty Eradication Scheme to which US$231m was allotted. The present Poverty Alleviation Programme launched in 2000 had fallen far wanting its goal to create a complete of 200,000 new jobs”.
Apparently, nobody appears to have been sanctioned within the Nigeria Excessive Fee, London or the Federal Ministry of Overseas Affairs, greater than two years after alerting them to the foregoing failings. The president’s comment in Imo State made me to test the web site throughout and behold the shocker remains to be there! Nobody cares within the Federal Ministry of Data. What concerning the Central Financial institution of Nigeria the place billions are spent on varied programmes and tasks, which have impacted on the lives of many poor individuals and but stay below reported? The Central Financial institution has remodeled agriculture in recent times. Rice and maize manufacturing have risen due to the insurance policies of the Buhari administration, main Nigeria to sustainable crop manufacturing and ultimately meals safety. Nigeria has now turn into the main cereals producer in Africa because of these insurance policies. Is it not price reporting? But they’re solely involved concerning the poverty eradication programmes of over twenty years in the past? Are individuals doing their jobs?
Sixty-two years after independence we can not narrate our story as a result of those that are paid to do that by no means do it. Two years have handed since these involved about Nigeria Excessive Fee London have been alerted and so they have executed nothing.
The Buhari administration has offered over N1.7 trillion capital interventions in schooling. That is extremely below reported. Even the data regarding the CBN Facilities of Excellence will not be simply obtainable in official college web sites however the web site of the contractors. The CBN has offered billions of naira for these tasks; how a lot does it take to offer footage and different pictures of those interventions on-line?
Among the newly established establishments the place the Federal Authorities has expended billions of naira don’t even have official web sites to chronicle their main achievements. How a lot does it take to have such web sites by instructional establishments with all their human sources? Even different necessary organisations don’t have any profiles of their leaders however these are solely disgracefully obtainable on Wikipedia. The profiles of distinguished Senators and Honourable Members of the Home of Representatives are lazily offered on the official web site of the Nationwide Meeting. What does it take to have profiles of leaders? I skilled this whereas modifying the Nigeria 12 months Guide and Who’s Whoa three-volume compendium on Nigeria. A lot of the different credible compendia are on-line and are largely international. Sixty-two years after independence we can not narrate our story as a result of those that are paid to do that by no means do it. Two years have handed since these involved about Nigeria Excessive Fee London have been alerted and so they have executed nothing.
