General @MBuhari did not say anything new. @NOIweala already told us to wash our hands and socially distance. We want to hear what he plans to do to help. Nothing like that. Instead, he was praising himself. A robot would have done better .
2-General @MBuhari boasted about providing ₦15 billion intervention. Nonsense. That is $37 million for a population of 200 million people. That is less than the ₦150 billion he budgeted for NASS. India released $27 billion for food alone!
3-How can the FG compete with the private sector in amount provided as relief? You collect taxes, oil rents and Abacha loot and all you give is ₦15 billion. The private sector gave more. Why do we pay you tax? Why do we have a government.
4-General @MBuhari ordered a lockdown of Lagos, Abuja and Ogun. These areas have already been on lockdown for a week. Does it mean Buhari did not know? How can you ask people to stay in lockdown without providing a adequate reliefs to them.
5-General @MBuhari said the school feeding program should go on. Has he been living in a cave? @Google it. The states have been complaining that the program had been abandoned. He is unaware! So, students will stay at home and eat at school?
6-Nigeria has a Strategic Food Reserve established by previous governments. If General @MBuhari had compassion, he should have ordered that the grains be released to Nigerians. After all, during Ramadan, Government shares good. Why not now?
7-You can imagine the cheek of General @MBuhari talking about his useless #Tradermoni now! What nonsense! What is the relevance of tradermoni and NPOWER to #CoronaVirus if you are not mobilising beneficiaries as auxiliary health workers?
8-In summary, General @MBuhari’s #CoronaVirus broadcast was just hot air! He did not redirect the $37 billion budgeted to renovate NASS or the $150 billion budgeted for less than 500 Reps and Senators towards providing relief for Nigerians
