PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday met behind closed doors with the chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in London.

The President’s Personal Assistant on Social Media, Alhaji Bashir Ahmad, made this known on his tweeter handle, @BashirAhmad, in Abuja.

The presidential aide posted: “President Muhammadu Buhari receives National leader of our great party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu (Jagaba) today in London.’’


News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that President Buhari, who is on an official visit to London had on Wednesday met with the Archbishop of Canterbury, His Grace Justin Welby in London where he explained why he declared his intention to run for another term in office.

President Buhari had on April 9, 2018, during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the All Progressives Congress (APC) declared his intention to seek re-election in 2019.

“I declared before leaving home because Nigerians were talking too much about whether I would run or not.


“So, I felt I should break the ice. We have many things to focus on, like security, agriculture, economy, anti-corruption, and many others.

“We needed to concentrate on them, and politics should not be a distraction.

“The majority of Nigerians appreciate what we are doing, and that is why I am re-contesting,’’ President Buhari told the Archbishop.

While in Britain, the president is billed to hold discussions on Nigeria – British relations with Prime Minister Mrs Theresa May, prior to the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meetings scheduled for April 18 to 20.

A presidential spokesman Garba Shehu had earlier disclosed that: “The President will also meet the Chief Executive Officer of Royal Dutch Plc, Mr Ben van Beurden in connection with Shell and other partners’ plan to invest $15b in Nigeria’s oil industry.

“These investment ventures will lay the foundation for the next 20 years production and domestic gas supply, bringing with it all the attendant benefits both to the economy and the wider society.”

Shehu, who is the President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, said that further meetings had also been scheduled for the President to see some prominent British and Nigerians residing in Britain.

It was another historic day in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital on Friday, 13 of April 2018.  One thousand (1000) rural women from the three senatorial districts of the state received 10,000 Noiler chickens under the state government’s women empowerment programme in collaboration with the British American Tobacco Nigeria Foundation. Agriculture, in simple terms, is defined as the planting of crops and rearing of animals. Nigeria is essentially an agrarian society with over 70 per cent of the farming population being smallholder farmers. The peasant farmers, especially in this part of the country, till the land. They mostly keep fowls and animals as pets, hardly constituting a source of food. The current initiative of the state government will be an added impetus to its massive investments in the sector.

To mention a few somewhat in parenthesis, the Ibikunle Amosun administration invested in heavy land-clearing equipment in a scale never witnessed in the annals of the state in 2013. Just recently, another investment was made on farm machinery. Hundreds of acres of land have been cultivated. More hectares are being cleared for rice production after the successful launch of MITROS Rice last December, turning Ogun to a rice-producing state in the country. Many private investors are making their presence felt in the sector with thousands of direct and indirect employment generated. With the encouragement from government, many rural farms have been established and hundreds of agriculture cooperative societies have benefited from the Commercial Agric Loan of the state government. In one year alone, the Ogun

State government produced and sold one million cocoa seedlings to farmers at highly subsidized rate in order to reinvigorate the industry. 70 hectares of Cassava Multiplication Plantation were cultivated for the generation of cassava cuttings that meet industrial and nutritional needs of the populace. The state government equally built model Farm Estates with modern houses in order to encourage graduates of Agriculture and allied disciplines to practice and make the sector attractive to youths.

On February 28, 2015, history was made as for the first time – and still the only time Nigerians elected an opposition presidential candidate. On May 29, 2015, Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in and almost immediately, some things started to get better. Some said it was the body language of the President putting things in place; the fear of Buhari was the beginning of wisdom.

Power generation increased, the ‘dead’ refineries started working again. For most Nigerians, change had really come. Then, it crashed. Things took a nosedive. Fast forward three years and it’s now the same old story.

There was so much expectation, even if we do not talk about the campaign promises which at that time, I felt will not be achievable for the promises were just too much -for a government that rode to power on the platform of ‘change’,  little has changed in three years. Yes, it has succeeded in changing some things but much more could have changed.

The budget still has not returned to the January-December calendar. Refineries are still not working at ‘optimum’ capacity and sometimes comatose. We are still importing fuel and paying subsidy on it. The incredible aberration of exporting millions of barrels of crude and importing millions of liters of petroleum products still remain.
