Trump questions Buhari over missing $330m


Questions Trump should ask Buhari to expose his corruption, mismanagement of Nigeria 





Amidst the official presidential reception of PMB, an  important note to President Donald Trump would be the question of what happened to the missing $330m on 12 Super Turano combat planes whose purchase President Buhari authorized by withdrawing $462 million from the Excess Crude Account without due process. According to one of the world’s premier aviation intelligence agency, Flight Global, the cost of a Super Tucano aircraft is around $10m. The US President would obviously be interested in knowing why an aircraft Afghanistan buys for $10 million each cost Nigeria $41 million especially if Nigeria did not pay $41 million per plane to the United States. The excuse given by the Buhari administration that it had to make haste and pay for the Super Tocano jets because of the anti terror war does not make sense since the US has announced that the jets would not be ready until the year 2020.

The only logical reason for the illegal and hurried payment is that it is meant to source funds for Buhari’s reelection. The United States, knowing that a Presidential election is around the corner would want to know if it could be that President Buhari plans to use the missing $330m to boost his failing election prospects for February 2019 by funding underage and cross border voting in his Northwest region of the country, as reported by independent observers such as CITAD. This becomes likely as the President recently boasted that he would be re-elected even though his popularity is at variance with his boast. These revelations vindicate the recently released US report about human rights abuses and corruption in Nigeria and follows a pattern of corrupt behaviour by the Buhari administration that has seen it spend $25 billion on contracts at the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation without due process, return, reinstate and double promote Nigeria’s biggest ever alleged thieving civil servant, Abdulrasheed Maina, reinstatement of the Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme who was indicted for corrupt practices against the advice of the minister of health, non prosecution of Buhari cronies caught red handed in corruption such as former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Babachir Lawal, It is expected therefore that President Donald Trump and the United States government to use their influence to put Mr. Buhari on the spot by making him aware that the international community will not accept anything less than a transparent election in 2019.
