Northern Nigeria: Fani-Kayode Blasts Buhari For Asking World Bank To Focus On Region

Former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Femi Fani-Kayode, has berated Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari for asking the President of the World Bank Group, Jim Yong Kim, to concentrate on Northern Nigeria.

Recall we had reported earlier that the World Bank President had said the bank placed its focus on the northern region of Nigeria in line with President Muhammadu Buhari’s request.

Kim said: “You know, in my very first meeting with President Buhari he said specifically that he would like us to shift our focus to the northern region of Nigeria and we’ve done that.  Now, it has been very difficult. The work there has been very difficult.

“I think Nigeria, of course, has suffered from the dropping oil prices. I think things are just now getting better.  But the conversation we need to have with Nigeria, I think, is in many ways related to the theme that I brought to the table just this past week, which is investment in human capital.  The percentage of the Gross Domestic Product that Nigeria spends on healthcare is less than one percent,” Kim said.

Reacting to the statement in series of tweets on Friday morning, Fani-Kayode alleged that President Buhari sees Nigerians from the South and Middle Belt as “low-lifes, vassals and slaves”.

The PDP chieftain wrote: “President of the World Bank, Kim Yong Jim, has said that @MBuharitold him to concentrate their efforts on northern Nigeria.

“Why am I not surprised? After all as far as@MBuhari is concerned southern Nigerians and Middle Belters are nothing but low-lifes, vassals and slaves.”
