Tinubu’s Palliative Scheme Exposed As Fraud

Published

on

Another fraudulent scheme to siphon off public funds is the Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s palliative scheme to send N8,000 to 12 million low-income households for the upcoming six months. Phrank Shauibu, Atiku Abubakar’s special assistant for public communication and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), made this accusation. 

Shuaibu compared Tinubu’s request for an $800 million loan for palliative care to the COVIID-19 intervention funds, which allowed politicians to keep food and supplies in their homes while people living in poverty went without, according to the statement. 

He said, “After announcing the removal of petrol subsidy without proper planning, Tinubu has asked for the approval of a $800m loan which he claims will be disbursed to 12 million households for six months at N8,000 for each household per month. This is a continuation of the scam of the All Progressives Congress.” 

Shaibu argued that Tinubu’s only economic strategy was to tax Nigerians. He claimed that Tinubu has been exposed as an economic illiterate as a result of his deceptive ascent to the presidency. Tinubu boasted that he would “develop Nigeria’s economy” to resemble Lagos’, but this was all a con, according to Shuaibu. Statistics indicate that due to Lagos’ status as the former capital of Nigeria, more than 70% of the city’s revenue comes from income taxes paid by private businesses that have operated there for years. His only strategy, as it was in Lagos, is to tax Nigerians until they die. For this reason, the residents of Lagos rejected him in the most recent election. Tinubu claimed he would make Nigeria’s economy worth $1 trillion, but everything he said was a lie and is unattainable using his brand of “agberonomics.” 

If Tinubu was truly serious about reviving the economy, he claimed, he should have concentrated on investing in the agricultural sector, subsidizing production, and working to achieve energy security, which is the foundation for fostering the desired economic growth from SMEs. 

The economy of Nigeria is largely based on agriculture, he continued. He ought to have allocated money to agricultural production and other matters that had an impact on crop yields. The majority agrarian rural areas are plagued by insecurity. Currently, more than 200 people have died under Tinubu’s watch. He doesn’t appear to know how to deal with this threat, though.

“The so-called palliatives Tinubu wants to distribute to the underprivileged are merely another way to divert public funds. Since the so-called palliatives are all a scam, the Nigerian government has consistently rejected requests to publish a list of their recipients.

Tinubu needs to stop attempting to mislead Nigerians who are still experiencing the negative effects of his poor economic policies.

He added that there are worries that the APC will use this strategy to revive old strategies for buying votes, such as using public funds as cover.

No one should be in any doubt that the planned palliative is “The scheme is nothing but a means to use public funds to prosecute political crimes,” says Trader Moni 2.0. 

 It is even more telling that the current imposter administration is thinking about taking the initiative at a time when there is great anticipation for the Mrial election tribunal’s decision in the contentious election that put Tinubu into office.

“The APC is a political party that has fallen out of favor with the vast majority of Nigerians, and it is no accident that the party incontrovertibly introduced the threat of vote buying into Nigeria’s body politic in 2019 when it invented the charade of Trader Moni.

“More than N20 billion”, he claimed, was “wasted on corruption, kickbacks, fraud, and partisanship” during the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari, according to a special investigation into the Trader Moni initiative.

The suspension stems from the recent political turmoil that engulfed the nation, with the African Union pointing to the coup orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani on Wednesday, July 26. As part of a series of sanctions imposed on the francophone West African country, the Republic of Niger faced the repercussions of its internal upheaval.

The African Union’s stance was uncompromising, as it made it clear that Western nations seeking to meddle in African affairs should refrain from interfering. This firm message was directed from the heart of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, where the AU’s call for autonomy echoed loudly.

The events leading up to Niger’s suspension unfolded against a backdrop of political uncertainty and unrest. The coup in Niger, orchestrated by Gen Abdourahamane Tchiani, prompted the Afican Union to take action. Their decision to suspend Niger was not taken lightly and was ratified during the Peace and Security Council meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on August 22.

The aftermath of the military takeover in left President Mohamed Bazoum in captivity, held under the close watch of the juntas in Niger. Despite international pressure, the release of the president and his family remains elusive. This tense situation compelled the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to intervene, imposing sanctions on Niger and establishing a deadline for the initiation of military intervention by the sub-regional body’s standby forces.

The suspension of the Republic of Niger from the African Union serves as a stark reminder of the continent’s commitment to upholding stability and safeguarding democratic governance. The swift response underscores the African Union’s dedication to maintaining order and security within its member states, sending a resounding message to the global community about the importance of respecting Africa’s sovereignty.

Published

In a recent tweet that has caught the attention of many, @MissPearls shares an inspiring declaration made by former Anambra state governor and Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. According to @MissPearls, Peter Obi proclaimed, “I campaigned for Presidency because I can say it any day, I Will SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF NIGERIA. All these confusion everywhere can BE SOLVED, and I am PREPARED for it”

Peter Obi: I Campaigned For Presidency Because I Can Say It Any Day, I Will Solve The Problem Of Nigeria.

Peter Obi’s bid for the presidency in the recent elections stirred considerable excitement and garnered support from diverse quarters, particularly the youth demographic. The former governor is known for his progressive ideas and pragmatic approach to governance, which resonated with many Nigerians who sought change and effective solutions to the country’s myriad challenges.

Despite his extensive support and well-articulated vision, Peter Obi’s presidential ambitions faced formidable opponents in the election. The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released results that placed him behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, who emerged as the winner, and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second. However, these results were met with skepticism due to apparent electoral irregularities that marred the integrity of the process.

In response to the controversial election outcome, both Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar filed legal challenges against the INEC’s declaration. This move underscores their commitment to upholding the democratic process and ensuring that the voice of the electorate is accurately reflected. As the election Tribunal Judges prepare to deliver their verdict, Nigeria watches with bated breath, eager to witness justice being served.

Meanwhile, the administration of Mr. Bola Ahmed Tinubu has taken significant policy actions since assuming office. The removal of fuel subsidies and the decision to float the Naira have triggered mixed reactions across the nation. While these measures may be intended to foster economic stability and growth, the immediate consequences have been felt by everyday Nigerians. The cost of living has surged, and the socio-economic effects on the rich and the poor have become more pronounced.

As the Nigerian population navigates these shifts, the aftermath of the election and the ensuing governance strategies offer a critical juncture for evaluating the nation’s trajectory. The voices of discontent, expressed by citizens facing the brunt of these policies, highlight the necessity for leaders to prioritize the well-being of the populace while pursuing economic advancements. It is essential for the government to strike a balance between fiscal prudence and safeguarding the interests of the vulnerable segments of society.

The policy changes implemented by Bola Tinubu have shed light on the delicate balance between progress and the welfare of the people. As the nation waits for the tribunal’s judgment and the dust settles on the recent election, Nigeria stands at a crossroads, with the potential to reshape its future trajectory and address the systemic challenges that have held it back for far too long.

The rally, which unfolded outside the state government house, saw impassioned youths brandishing placards with messages that underscored their commitment to justice and the integrity of the electoral process. Their actions were sparked by concerns over an alleged plan to bribe the state election petition tribunal, casting a shadow over the fairness of the process.

The ban on protests was issued in response to recent revelations made by Justice Flora Azinge, who unveiled purported schemes by lawyers to disrupt the course of justice through financial incentives. The Commissioner of Police cited “confirmatory intelligence products” as the basis for this decision, leaving a contentious atmosphere surrounding the freedom of assembly and the right to peaceful protest.

This ban, however, failed to deter the resolute youths who carried a variety of placards conveying their strong stance against corruption, manipulation, and injustice. The slogans they chanted resonated with their determination to safeguard the sanctity of the electoral process and uphold transparency in governance.

Among the messages displayed, one placard caught the eye with its direct callout: “Gandollar, stop spoiling the name of Tinubu.” This highlights the allegation that financial impropriety is tainting the reputation of key political figures.

In a video circulated online, the enthusiastic protesters chanted slogans that echoed their deep-seated concerns. Chants of “No to corruption,” “No to injustice,” and “No to manipulation” reverberated through the crowd, embodying the youth’s unwavering commitment to fair and accountable governance.

Addressing the gathering, Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf praised the peaceful conduct of the protesters and assured them that their concerns would be relayed to President Bola Tinubu. This gesture recognizes the role of the youth in shaping political discourse and underscores the importance of their voices in the pursuit of a just society.

In conclusion, the youths in Kano have seized the moment to voice their concerns and demands for an unbiased electoral process. Their defiance of the police ban serves as a reminder that public sentiment cannot be easily suppressed. As this incident unfolds, it raises important questions about the delicate balance between freedom of assembly, legitimate protest, and maintaining public order. It also underscores the critical role of the youth in shaping the political landscape and demanding accountability from their leaders.
