“Boko Haram are ‘fraudulent people”– Buhari

On Tuesday, September 13, President Muhammadu Buhari called Boko Haram militants “fraudulent people.”

After inaugurating a few projects in the South-East state, Buhari was invited by the governor of Imo state and accused the elite of not giving Nigeria enough thought.

Additionally, he said that his administration has performed “very well” and that people who should be praising his administration for its accomplishments have remained silent.

Additionally, Buhari criticized his predecessors for not doing enough to build the nation’s infrastructure despite making significant profits from crude oil.

He said; 

“To be frank with you, I blame the Nigerian elite for not thinking hard about our country.

“Between 1999 and 2015 when we came in, I will like people to check the Central Bank and the NNPC, the average production was 2.1million bpd. Nigeria was earning at this time 2.1million times but look at the state of infrastructure, look at the road…look at the railway, it was virtually killed. Power, we are still struggling.

“But when we came, unfortunately, the militants were unleashed, production went down to half a million bpd. Again, unfortunately, the cost of petroleum went down from $28 to $37.”

Buhari also said before he came into office in May 2015, Boko Haram terrorists controlled local governments in Borno State but that has become a thing of the past.

He added; 

“Look at the problem in the North-East, check with anybody from Borno or Adamawa, how many local governments were in the hands of the government and how many were in the hands of Boko Haram? Fraudulent people, whoever they are, are fraudulent! But now, go and ask the hardworking governor of Borno State, a very hardworking governor. Federal Government is in charge now.

“In terms of time and resources, this administration has done extremely well. I have to say it because those who are supposed to say are not saying it. I don’t know why.”
