Country that borrows to service debt shouldn’t purchase N1.14b vehicles for Niger Republic – IPOB lawyer lambasts Buhari

Country that borrows to service debt shouldn’t purchase N1.14b vehicles for Niger Republic – IPOB lawyer lambasts Buhari

One of the lawyers representing the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, Ifeanyi Ejiofor, has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari’s purchase of N1.14bn worth of vehicles for the Niger Republic.

Ejiofor said Nigeria, that’s borrowing money from foreign countries to service her debt, shouldn’t be engaged in this level of financial recklessness.

He disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, describing the donation of the vehicles as absurd and unacceptable.

WOTHAPPEN NEWS had reported that the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, confirmed the purchase of the vehicles, defending it as acting in line with the national interest.

The statement read, “Acquiring SUVs by the Nigerian government for another country’s use: misplaced priority of the highest order. 

“I was gobsmacked after reading the trending news on the above subject, and the desperate vain attempt by the managers of one of the most corrupt countries in the universe, struggling to defend the obvious. 

“How did we get here? What crimes did our forerunners commit that we are visited with this level of wickedness and indifference? 

“Every part of Nigeria is bedevilled by an unprecedented level of insecurity. Even Abuja, the supposed seat of power is not safe. The security agents are daily decimated by terrorists and criminals because they are poorly equipped. 

“Majority of the Nigerian security formations are still struggling with their rickety Hilux vans/ vehicles, in the execution of their official engagements. 

“Who did this to us? How can a country that is borrowing money from foreign countries to service her debt be engaged in this level of financial recklessness and bazaar? 

“It is high time the government and public officers are held accountable for the public offices that they hold.”
