Don’t fall for the ‘Incompetence’ message they’re trying to push to distract from ‘Corruption’. Nigeria’s largest-ever Social Welfare Prog @NSIP_NG, 6 million new TaxPayers, new $650m Infra Fund, attracting billions of $$$ in Agric Investments — AIN’T a definition of Incompetence Let’s break it down a little bit. The @NSIP_NG: Nigeria has never had a more ambitious Social Welfare Programme, targeting the most vulnerable. 500,000 @npower_ng, more than 8 million kids for @NHGSFP, more than 300,000 households for @HUPcct, and 2m for @Trader_Moni by year-end.

THREAD: @HQNigerianArmy Press Release on #JosPond #JosPondofDeath and Missing General:

“[On] social media, it was reported that eleven (11) cars and two (2) corpses had been recovered. This is false and misleading.” ”On 29 September 2018, a black Toyota Corolla car with the registration number KWARA MUN 670 AA, a customized white T-Shirt with Nigerian Army logo and the general’s name inscribed on it as well as a pair of canvas shoes belonging to the retired missing senior officer.”

Politicking aside, serious work is still going on. Today is for #LagosIbadanRail. Tour should commence shortly.

It‘s a brand new 160km standard gauge rail line that will run from Iddo in Lagos, through Ogun State, to Ibadan in Oyo State. Construction in progress. Last week was for #ItakpeWarriRail, this week is for #LagosIbadanRail. From the same people who brought you the blockbuster #AbujaMetro.

Live from Itakpe in Kogi State. This is one of the construction workers on #ItakpeWarriRail Line. “I praise the [Buhari Administration]. Before now we didn’t know there was a rail line in Kogi State. It’s Buhari that’s made it possible for us to see this. Make God bless am.” Usman is a mechanical technician. He used to be a driver, then switched to technical work (which he says he learned from childhood, tinkering with cars.) He worked on the Obajana cement plant in 2015/16, and has now worked on #ItakpeWarriRail for 8 months.

Mr Kọ́lá,the PDP Admin left behind HUNDREDS of abandoned projects, that the Buhari Administration has been painstakingly completing, one by one. Only an IRRESPONSIBLE Govt would set aside important ABANDONED projects to instead be chasing the cheap glory of ‘We started our own!’ BRF said @FMPWH inherited >200 Abandoned/uncompleted road projects:…

Min of @FMWRNigeria said they inherited 117 unfinished projects…

TCN inherited 450 containers of power equipment abandoned at the Ports:…
