From one LAI to another, the government keeps acting like we are robots that they can control anyhow. The National Economic Council NEC, approved $1B from Excess Crude Account to fight Boko Haram Terrorists in the North East, and these actions keep making one wonder if Nigeria is now an Animal Farm that is for a selected few. It’s saddening to see these Boko Haram Terrorist kill people, also disheartening is that the FG had initially said they had technically defeated Boko Haram, but now require as much as $1B One Billion Dollars to fight Boko Haram insurgents. One day they come and say one thing, the next day they say another.
Edo State Governor Mr. Godwin Obaseki came out to say that the 36 Governors of the Nigerian State approved the $1B, but the Governor of Ekiti State Ayo Fayose denied the allegation, saying he is not among those who approved using over half of Nigeria’s savings to fight an already defeated Boko Haram. Even the former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode expressed disgust at the action by FG and APC.
For posterity sake, I wish to place it on record that I was not among the governors, who approved the withdrawal of $1bn, almost half of our savings in the Excess Crude Account, which belongs to the three tiers of govt to fight an already defeated Boko Haram.

This is the same Government that promised to wipe out Boko Haram in 6 months, but it appears they are planning to wipe out the reserve of the nation, and use it to fund their projects. How is it that now that 2019 Elections is close they are using such an amount? To show you how confused they are, just within 2 weeks of raising the Nigerian Flag and declaring Boko Haram Defeated, they are now using $1B to fight Boko Haram.
Nigeria is just recovering from Recession and the economy still badly depleted, but Your MCM got $1B to Fight Boko Haram Terrorists, which they had Defeated Technically. It’s now obvious that there can also be legal corruption where you loot through legal means. We continue to observe.
