Mazi @FestusGreen@FestusGreen writes: “Niger Republic is unofficially the 37th State of Nigeria, since 1985, when Buhari, as HoS, voted for a Niger republic Fulani man for OAU Sec Gen over an Igbo man. That $2B railway he’s building into Niger Republic would be completed b4 the second River Niger bridge. Priorities!

“Buhari also abandoned all of Nigeria’s dilapidated critical Infrastructures, and in 2018, he announced that NIGERIA would build a new $2B refinery in Niger Republic. Priorities!

“Buhari had also nominated a Nigerien, Mr Ali Mohammed Magashi, as an ambassadorial candidate, he was from Niger Republic, this was revealed during Senate screening.

“Buhari also awarded a contract of $81 million dollars for the construction of two roads from Sokoto/ Jigawa States up to Niger Republic. What’s the connection between Buhari & Niger Republic? What’s popping? What president would prioritize a foreign country over his own?”
