Buhari Got into the White House Because of the $490m Paid up front for the Tucano Jets to be Delivered in 2020
Femi Fani-Kayode Penned the bottom line is as follows:
The only reason Buhari got into the White House was because of the $490 million he paid up front for the Tucano jets.
He also agreed to open up Nigeria to American agricultural products which has grave and serious implications for Nigerian farmers and which will undoubtedly put them out of business whilst making millions of dollars for their American counterparts.
President Donald Trump got all he wanted. And he did a great job for America. Why won't he smile and pat Buhari on the back?
All Buhari and Nigeria got in return was a warning to stop killing Christians.
A CONCERNED NIGERIAN NOTED:
The deal Buhari signed in America
China is about to enforce new tax on American agricultural products in the next few weeks and President Trump needs new markets for American farm produce before calling the bluff of China. He approached Nigeria, Brazil and Argentina to take American farm produce in exchange for security deals. Nigeria is the highest consumer of Chinese soya beans in the world; with Nigeria signing an arms deal that includes military hardware transfer, 12 Tucano jets, training and parts, we can cut off China and embrace USA. So thought the President and his team!
Trump clearly stated he’s not interested in Nigeria oil or any other thing but to provide new markets for American farmers that will be affected by Chinese new tariff. He is not buying anything from us; he is not investing anything in Nigeria. He pure created markets for two business groups (Dangote and American farmers) represented by Presidents Trump and Buhari.
Here’s the problem:
Insecurity in Nigeria is preventing farmers from going back to their farms, therefore creating food scarcity and high cost of living in our homes. While Buhari will receive tonnes of grains and other foodstuffs directly from American farmers in the next few months, crashing the food prices across the country, his decision will defeat his government’s hyped fertilizer program which encourages farmers to return to farm which in itself is a ruse - we know the havoc wrecked so far by Fulani Herdsmen invading and burning down farms across the country.
The twist to the whole charade is the inclusion of Aliko Dangote in Buhari’s entourage. You know Dangote right? The man who holds the monopoly right to import so many commodities into Nigeria without competition. No import duties and tariffs, just VIP clearance from the power that be.
The moment Buhari was signing those deals, Dangote was signing as the sole beneficiary of the importation. He is Nigeria in the deal, not Buhari who knows nothing.
Dangote gets a good deal to keep the monopoly intact, Nigeria army got their 12 fighter jets deals sorted too, Trump makes American Farmers Great Again.
What do Nigeria farmers, Nigerians get, HOPE!
CHARLES BOYEH SAID:
couldn't agree more. Trump is a very smart and cunning man. that's why when he says "America first" he means every bit of it. Buhari being a dimwitted fuddy-duddy will dance to his (Trump) tune. i'm looking forward to seeing one local or foreign journalist who will be bold enough to ask Buhari why he said "a clampdown on Boko haram is an injustice to the north"
KRIS MKPAJU SAID:
Buhari with his inferiority complex has once again mortgaged the Nigeria future for signing to open up Nigeria to American genetically modified Agric products. Those GMOs has its health implications. And again our local farmer will no longer smile to the banks by the time this policy is implemented.
Buhari is a moron.
He is busy wasting our collective wealth on buying fighter jets from USA to Russia to Jordan etc.
