Presidential Media Chat: 10 Questions for President Buhari

Buhari Talking

President Muhammadu Buhari will this evening host a televised media chat with some Nigerian journalists, during which he will respond to questions on a number of topical national issues.

Aso Rock spokesperson, Femi Adesina, said in a statement the presidential media chat, to be aired live on major television and radio stations in the country, will begin at 7 p.m. Nigerian time.

The presidency promised in the past to entertain questions from Nigerians via telephone, although the phone failed to work during those episodes of the programme.

Critics believe the phones were programmed not to work as a way of blocking citizens from asking the president embarrassing questions.

So, in case you are able to reach the president on the programme today, we suggest you put the questions below to him, in addition to others you might have.

We also urge the editors, who will interview the president, to consider asking him some of the questions suggested below.

1. Under your administration, the State Security Service has continued to disobey court orders. The court barred the agency from evicting a former DG of the SSS, Kayode Are, from his Lagos residence. It disobeyed. Later, the court gave another order that Mr. Are be restored to his home. Again the SSS disobeyed.

The agency also failed to release the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, Nnamdi Kanu, despite two court orders to release him immediately and unconditionally. In fact, in the case of Mr. Kanu a Federal High Court judge withdrew from his trial after he (Kanu) argued that your government would not honour any decision reached by the court following the disregard of two earlier court orders to release him.

The same SSS ignored a court order and placed former NSA, Sambo Dasuki, on house arrest for weeks after the court granted him bail for medical treatment abroad.

Mr. President, are you not worried that your administration is endangering the rule of law and bringing the judiciary to disrepute? And if your government continues to disobey court orders shouldn’t Nigerians doubt the sincerity of your campaign promise to reform the judiciary to deepen public confidence in it?

2. You have rightly distanced yourself from the Frivolous Petitions Bill, also known as the anti-social media bill, currently being deliberated upon in the Senate. However, a breakdown of the 2016 appropriation bill shows that your government, under the National Intelligence Agency, budgeted N1.3 billion for “Open Source Internet Monitoring System”, N1.2billion for the procurement of surveillance equipment for the SSS, N8.7 billion to the office of the NSA for “Develop All Eye Project” and another N9 billion to the office of the NSA for a certain “Construct Stravinsky Project”.

All these are listed as new projects. Mr President, don’t you think these expensive surveillance projects, even while Nigeria does not have a law in place regulating Internet Surveillance, will stand in the way of free speech, something you claim to support?

3. Mr. President, you maintained a deafening silence in the wake of the violent assault on members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria by the Nigerian Army, in Zaria. Don’t you see that as a tacit support for the brutal, extrajudicial actions of the army?

Also, in the light of the Shia killings in Zaria, and the human tragedy aside for now, are you worried that Nigeria has effectively been drawn into a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia? Certainly this is not helpful, even if it does not effectively worsen the security challenges in the North-East. Where do you stand on this development?

4. How should Nigerians understand your anti-corruption struggle from a strategic viewpoint? What is the broad outline, the big picture as it were, which is the lead agency prosecuting the war, who is coordinating, and which other agencies are in the team?

Also, Mr. President, the presidency said a few months ago that full details of your assets would be available in due course. Details released at that time were at best vague, with mention of properties without addresses and their values. Can we have an idea of when you plan to make public, full and specific details of your assets.

5. You recently said some functionaries of the immediate past government had started returning looted funds and that their names would be made public soon. Nigerians have been waiting to know these people who looted their country’s commonwealth and how much they took. When are you going to fulfil this promise? How much has been recovered? Are you under any form of pressure not to reveal details of this development?

6. Your party, the APC, promised to construct 4,800kms (an approximate distance from Abuja to London) of railway across the country. From 1888 (when railway started in Nigeria) to date, Nigeria has a total of 3,500kms of existing railway lines across the country. What is the possibility of beating this record in the next three and half years remaining in your tenure?

7. You gave the military up till this month to end the Boko Haram insurgency. However, as at last weekend, the insurgents were still unleashing mayhem on Nigerians. Scores were killed in Borno and Adamawa on Sunday. Yet you and the information minister recently suggested that the war on terror had been won? Would you in all sincerity say the war has been won? And why?

8. You seem to enjoy making important policy statements while abroad. In fact, you are now known as a President who preferred to unfold your administration’s policy direction while in foreign capitals. You also seem to be more comfortable granting interviews to foreign channels than local media establishments. You recently granted an interview to the Hausa service of the BBC even when you knew that not all Nigerians understand Hausa. What are the reasons guiding your choices in this matter?

9. The foreign exchange restriction policy by the CBN was, perhaps, initiated in good faith to strengthen the Naira against other international currencies, especially the dollar. But it appears some Nigerians around the world, particularly students and genuine businessmen, are suffering, as they are unable to pay their school fees and other bills or transact businesses with payment instruments such as ATM cards.

Are you aware of their difficulties, and is the government considering a review of this policy?

10. Nigerians expected the present administration to be different from its predecessors, particularly in the area of cutting the cost of governance.

But we observe that the Presidency and the National Assembly seem to be carrying on as usual. Next year, government plans to spend several billions on maintaining Aso Rock, buying exotic official cars, maintaining a huge presidential air fleet and on foreign trips. Is this the change you promised Nigerians?

Nigerians are wondering why you are asking them to tighten their belts while your administration continues to waste billions on lavish lifestyles.

  • True Nigerian

    Totally valid, relevant and, most importantly, justifiable questions.

    • Question & Answer

      • President Buhari, don’t you believe in your heart of hearts that your domestic upkeep bill
      of 18.1 billion Naira is a crime against humanity and an attempt at stealing by tricks; if not, why?

  • mao

    Brilliant questions. I think the one on internet surveillance is quite important considering the fact that there are no specific laws to enforce such a policy effectively.

  • Papa Oghworiodo (Warri)

    MY CHILDREN,

    You have very good education. I am very proud of your colonial days teachers, who taught me too.
    One question that I want to phone to inside Aso Rock myself, at exactly 7.00pm is as as follows:

    Mr. Buhari, why do you like telling lies, when you know you are 73 years of age?
    For example, did you sit for the Wasc/Cambridge examination in 1961 and if so,
    where is your certificate having Waec/Cambridge seal on top, just like my own,
    that I got before 1961, when I was working at P & T in those days?

  • NIGERIA EEHHHHH

    PLEASE OHHHH BUHARI MUST ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS. SO PREMIUM TIMES IS AWARE OF ALL THESE AND ALSO THE FACT BUHARI DOES NOT PAY SALARY AS AT WHEN DUE AND THEY WILL BE PRETENDING???GOD SAVE US

    • 333oneliner

      ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Wherever Raji Fashola is; there, the spirit of theft is, also…………..

      • tsavage

        Raji Fashola one is just a very local street urchin that Buhari dragged in

        and dressed up in borrowed robes as his MInister for Power, Works and

        Housing – a complete misfit for the job with his dossier of compulsive thefts.

        • Reason-ability

          I really do pity the leaders who really have a love for Nigeria and want to see this nation prosper. Why would anyone hate Fashola in any way? Did Lagos not become better developed under him? So many roads constructed, bridges built, railway commenced, Bus transport service (LAMATA), education improved? He borrowed money for infrastructure and used PPP models also. Lagos is working, tax payers increased in geometric progression. What do people want? I think people should fear God indeed. And why are people bent on bringing this government down? Will it help the nation if we become like south sudan? I think we all need to examine ourselves and our motives. This nation hangs on the precipice and sometimes I wish I had money to buy the citizenship of another country. There is so much hate in Nigeria that I fear we may not survive. May God help us as we approach a new year.

  • Chris

    Sorry but am more concerned about how the president would lift the majority of people in this country From the poverty they face. From past experience the rule of law was never productive. If we have to break that law for the people to get justice , then so be it. Do I remind you about the individual who stole over 23million in pension funds and subsequently was given a bail of 10million. That issue is no more. Am also not interested in the presidents speech on boko haram, I simply want the FG to booster it’s efforts in protecting the common man. “The common man” is my concern.

      Editor Premium Times,

      Why BUHARI’S government ‘collapsed’ in 6 months

      We in APC now have great fear. We sense that
      Muhammadu Buhari is more hated than we thought. We believe Buhari did
      irreparable damage to himself by himself. He cancelled what was going well for
      him and showed the public the opposite face the public now hate with passion.
      Before 30th September things were going quite well, more or less, despite that
      Buhari was inactive. But once he announced notorious and indicted treasury
      thieves like Rotimi Amaechi and Raji Fashola as his Ministers, everything fell
      apart. Nigerians began to see Buhari differently, as a potential thief himself.

      Not just that. The main base Buhari stood on
      fell in and crashed. He was elected on anti-corruption platform. Nigerians
      did not vote for Buhari to use presidential powers for laundering treasury thieves.
      Nigerians did not vote for Buhari so as to be ruled by thieves again.
      Buhari appointed thieves as Ministers. That was when the Buhari government
      appeared to us in caucus to have collapsed and failed. Nobody is sure if this
      government can last till 2019 on the defensive.

      It has attracted too much bad press for immorality and theft. In fact, last week,
      Professor Itse Sagay made things worse for APC. He (Sagay) said Buhari appointed
      notorious treasury thieves Raji Fashola and Rotimi Amaechi as Ministers to disgrace
      the whistle-blowers who’d very lawfully exposed FASHOLA’s and AMAECHI’s thefts.
      History will not look kindly on Sagay or Buhari after their illegal immorality declared.

    • Uzoma John

      Chief Wailer. Embrace change. Nobody manipulated your Jonathan. Jona manipulated himself out of office. Stealing is not corruption.

  • I did It 4 Love.

    President Buhari should be able to respond to the above listed questions confidently because PREMIUM times have given him more than enough expo to allow him cheat but if he fails this exam na him sabi. Please can someone tell me when and where (TV station) the programme will be aired and time?

  • kamal

    Good questions drafted by PDP, but its not how well PMB responds to d questions. Good or bad, he is still better than GEJ n we shall vote him again in 2019.

  • Omolaja nofiu

    Special thanks to the Premium Times team for these questions because they represent the views of many of us Nigerians.

    Even those of us who genuinely opposed the laissez faire leadership and corrupt regime of Jonathan do not, and will not subscribe to flagrant disobedience to court orders and reckless Daura-nisation of Nigeria. What Nigeria and the long-suffering people of Nigeria deserve is genuine, honest and people-oriented leadership, not dictatorship or crude tacticians. Nigeria belong to all of us!!!

  • Damilola

    This is worrisome!!! PT articulated these thoughts as it is. Kudos!!! I hope the cabals to ask the questions are courageous enough to ask even beyond this, to the management of the economy which is expected to be ran via frivolous loans. They shud ask him all those questions in simple language, so that he doesn’t get lost. Thank u. I’m sure there won’t be power supply to see that program live here, I hope I can get fuel to power my Gen., I av to start hustling for dt nw

  • A National disgrace

    BUDGET 2016: BUHARI’S ALLOWANCES AND FEEDING WILL SINK NIGERIA.

    A total allocation of N2.2billion to the President Muhammadu Buhari (N1.75billion) and his deputy for feeding is the highest of similar allocation to any leader in the world. The figure was N710m higher than what was budgeted for the same purpose under former President Goodluck Jonathan.

    According to the budget document, N1.415bn was allocated to the President alone for general travels and transport. This amount, when compared to the N944.62m that Jonathan got in 2015, was N470.38m or 49.7% higher.

    A breakdown of the N1.415bn allocated for the President’s travels shows that the sum of N714.5m is proposed for local travels while N701.16m is budgeted for international travels.
    Both sums, when compared to the N640.34m and N304.32m allocated for the same purposes under Jonathan for local and foreign trips, represent an increase of N74.16m and N396.84m.

    For foodstuffs and catering materials, a total sum of N114.9m is allocated for Buhari alone, indicating an increase of N45.09m or 64.6% over that of Jonathan.

    In terms of honorarium and sitting allowances, N307.64m was budgeted for the President as against N223.24m allocated for the same purpose in 2015.

    In the same vein, N49.1m has been proposed for the President in the 2016 fiscal period for publicity and advertisement as against N29.8m in 2015 by Goodluck Jonathan.

    For the office of the Vice-President, the budget document states that N48m is proposed for general travels and transport in 2016 as opposed to N33.86m in 2015.
    In the same vein, the document says N13.3m and N13.9m are being proposed for international travels and transport (trainings) and international travels and transport (others) for the Vice- President in 2016.

    Both amounts, when compared to the sum of N9.4m and N9.87m, which was allocated for the same purpose in 2015, represents an increase of N3.9m and N4.03m respectively.
    Other amounts allocated for the Vice- President are foodstuffs and catering, N16.6m; refreshment and meals, N7.5m; honorarium and sitting allowance, N8.8m; and publicity and advertisement, N23.08m.

    These amounts allocated for Osinbajo, when compared to the amount budgeted for former Vice President Namadi Sambo for the same purpose under the 2015 budget, represent an increase of N4.84m, N2.18m, N1.88m and N6.79m respectively.

    President Buhari told Nigerians that Nigeria was broke, accusing former President of messing up the economy, but it has been proved that he is the most extravagant and wasteful Nigerian leader since Independence.

    To feed Buhari and paying for his over-bloated expenses in the 2016 budget, Nigeria will be borrowing N2.2trillion and will be paying N1.3trillion in servicing debts.
    If Buhari is honest, he should have presented Nigerians with a Budget of N4trillion or less and cut his personal allocations instead of doubling it in most cases when compared with that of his predecessors.

  • Abiboss

    Rule of law for terrorist and thieves? The corrupt judges granted permanent injunctions for many former governors and politicians to get away with public money. The court that found nothing on Ibori. The court the court that let Kalu and Dimeji walked away with billions of naira. The court that threw a young man in jail for allegedly stealing 400 naira from his okada passenger without trial for 8 years until some good Nigerians told his story to Good Samaritans that helped him out. He lost his father and mother during the time he spent in jail. However, the same rule of law gave Odili and Alao Akala freedom to walk free. The same rule of law gives all politicians to do whatever they want to do by stealing elections why those poor Nigerians they use are cooling in the den.

    Mr President, have you been hiding from questions about your School Cert (WASC) because you know you joined the officer rank of Nigeria Army without the required 5 credits including Maths and English? According to the statement of result issued by the Katsina college in which you purportedly wrote your WASC in 1962, you got F9 in Maths. In view of your fraudulently affidavits since 1962, are you not supposed to be living in Kirikiri Prison instead of Aso Rock?

    Premium Times should have written its last editorial on this daylight robbery by Muhammadu Buhari,
    instead of abstract something like value of Naira and all that. Morning shows the day. This Buhari
    is a reckless human being, just like Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire in those days. Muhammadu Buhari
    is the type that can relocate Central Bank vault to his bedroom. He’s that reckless, very dangerous.

    Despite the challenges and constraints President Jonathan faced, instead of losing any more ground, he rose to the occasion and retook no less than 22 local government areas and virtually pushed Boko Haram out of Nigeria. The only place that they occupied by the time the election took place was Sambisa forest.
    Jonathan achieved all this with those arms that he bought with raw cash. This is apparently what you are now complaining about. Permit me to remind you that it is those same arms that Jonathan bought with raw cash that your army is still using till today.
    Yet sadly since you were sworn in as President seven months ago you have lost some of those same local government areas that were earlier recovered and they are now back in the hands of the terrorists.
    Despite this you keep telling the international community and the Nigerian people that we are ”making progress” in the war against terror.
    As a matter of fact you went as far as to say that we had ”won the war” against Boko Haram and your Minister of Information, Mr. Lai Mohammed, echoed that grotesque mendacity and reiterated that sentiment by adding the words ”technically won” (whatever that may mean) to the equation.
    Sadly, two days later, on Christmas day, in what can only be described as an eloquent response from the terrorists, scores of innocent civilians were killed by Boko Haram in Borno state and a whole community was burnt to the ground.
    Again on Sunday 27th of December Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, came under heavy attack from the terrorists. So much for having ”won the war against Boko Haram”, whether ”technically” or otherwise.

    Instead of conceding that you had told the Nigerian people a pernicious lie, curiously the next thing that you did was to tell them that you would ”persuade Boko Haram to drop their arms”. One is compelled to ask: why would you have to persuade them to drop their arms if you had already defeated them and won the war against them?
    In any case this would be the first time in the history of modern warfare that a sitting President has sought to destroy and defeat a vicious and relentless terrorist organization and win the war against terror simply with the awesome and devastating weapon of persuasion.
    Perhaps you should recommend that same tactic to the Americans and the rest of the international community as an effective and credible weapon to adopt in their war against ISIL, Al Qaeda, Al Shabab, Hamas and all the other jihadist groups that plague the world.

    if option 8 is actually true. is confirming his critics that his a northern president. make no mistake, 2019 is not forever.

  • Romberg

    Why not ask the president why he is doing his first media chat after 9 months in office? I am keen to know, and so are many Nigerians. Is it PDP’s fault or Jonathan’s incompetence that caused PMB not to have held a media chat for nearly a year?

    Why not ask PMB to tell the world his covenant with Nigeria? The covenant documents that were circulated during the election have been disowned after the election. Can PMB make clear the promises he is bound to achieve, when and how?

    Why not ask PMB to tell Nigerians about the list he got from the US many months ago? Who are the people on the list? Was there truly a list? Why has his government refused to do anything about the list?

    What does corruption mean to PMB? The last I remembered, GEJ confused the whole nation on the definition of corruption. How will PMB define corruption?

    Why not ask Buhari about Chibok girls? It’s now 9 months since he took over. What specially has he done to locate the girls? And what specifically has he done for those rescued from Bokoharam? Why is it in the history of Nigeria, and under this administration, that not a single soul arrested for terrorism has been prosecuted?

    What does Buhari think about the performance of his ministers thus far? Is this his vision for Nigeria?

    You are not sincere with some of these questions, PT. You and I know , as of present our legal system is sick and need to be reformed. The judiciary is corrupt, where in the world you make a treason felony a bail-able offense. PMB should only obey court rulings that agree with the Nigerians position on the subject concerned. You want PMB to go the way of GEJ with nothing to attach to his name in terms of achievement – Nigerians including me have no confidence in the current judiciary. Saraki’s case with the CCB has been thrown into the trash bin forever, no big corrupt individuals have been prosecuted. About your questions –
    Security: are you saying the military is not fighting enough or you want Mr President to join the foot soldiers.
    Kanu’s issue – release Kanu means setting a bad antecedent..thousands with dual citizenship will rise up and you can’t stop the flow. The entire world is aware that Nigerian judiciary cant be relied upon so PMB can’t be blamed for ignoring rulings that make no sense. We made these laws and not the reverse. We want questions about economy, education, security and other under his direct control free of sentiments.

    • sab

      If such court rulings go the other way, then judiciary is at work. But you seems to have forgotten that PMB appointed about 30 justices or judges recently. So he is not far from the problems in the judiciary. Again, you seems to have forgotten that no matter how, a court’s order MUST HAVE TO BE OBEYED first, then there is room for appeal. It’s sad that even before the questions are posed to PMB people like you have started answering for or defending him. Tell me, in all your sincerity, if what is going on now are under another administration, would you toe this line you are toeing at the moment? This is a moral question.

      • femi alasoadura

        Thanks for your time to read through my position on this subject. You don’t treat crimes against the state same way you treat civil crimes. In US, UK, Russia and other developed nations not all court rulings are honored mostly ones that threatening the sovereignty of the state. For any Govt to achieve its objectives certain enemies of state must be kept away That is why OBJ kept some ( e.g Al Mustapha) in custody through out his tenure. Same practice in developed world. We shouldn’t be carried away about human right – Make a careless post online about the security of the state in US, then spend the rest of your life in prison. You can imagine someone calling for arms against the land.
        My desire is to see Nigeria going back to its old glory – to be a place that will attract tourists like other countries – Dubai, Paris, South Africa etc.
        We are yet to have a judiciary system built on merit. Presence one is a collection of individuals base on quota system. When it is time for Nigeria gvt to honor all the court rulings we will not need to be told. The world is aware, our Judiciary is corrupt.

  • Oh!

    Buhari promised to answer to answer questions by phone but the phones
    did not work. Automatically, this is an effort on Buhari’s part not to
    answer any questions.
    Do you morons think? Would it not be easier for Buhari to tell all of you to go stick your questions up your rectum?

    Regardless, question 1. is a non sequeter! There is division of power for very specific reasons.
    If the Judiciary fails in performing its duties, the executive can only change its head.
    The
    Police force and security agencies are under the Judiciary. Thus the
    Judiciary is responsible for ensuring compliance among is ranks. WHy
    drag the executive into this?
    We understand it is common nature to
    Nigerians to knock ‘the head’ when infact, it was the ‘butt-hole’ that
    farted! Question 1 is an aberration and should be treated as such.

    2.
    The anti social media bill has zero to do with the internet monitoring
    system. While one addresses the publication of falsities that can ruin a
    Government or her agents, the other deals specifically with gaining an
    advantage over terrorists and their actions. It is a slippery slope, but
    nothing worth doing is easy.

    3. Would it help if the president speaks to the killings? How?
    We
    all (consciously or not) pick our battles. The people complaining the
    loudest are some of those that secretly cheer the said attacks. There is
    no sincerity to this question.

    4. Nigerians should understand the
    anti corruption war as a war against corruption. It is right there in
    the name. If you can not understand it, ask someone to explain it to
    you.

    WHy are we even doing this?

    Buhari is your leader, your commander in chief and your president! Deal with it.

    Sometimes most of u paid (moaning mourners) or buharimice working for the Apes in APC, often believe that, 9jas do not think–so can cook up childish rubbish for us to swallow-hook line and sinker–Re–read the rubbish u posted in praise of Buhari-again Then show me one area of the life of BUHARI–where he ever obeyed one single court order-within the last 35 years—————Late—Pa Ajasin was accused by Buhari of being corrupt-Then the courts said nay–he was not–so freed him 3 times–Buhari refused to allow Pa Ajasin of Ondo state go home until IBB overthrew his government—Ajasin died hours after his release from the gulag of Buhari! Has Buhari changed from that monster that he was 30 years ago, to a ( mild Luciferic being) now? Nay————Leopard do not ever change their skin—-Buhari of yesterday is the same demonic Buhari of today-Look here my friend—when I predicted that Kalu ati Dasuki will never be granted bail some laughed at me and said—Buhari was a born again democrat–a certificate less Fulani like Buhari to repent of his evil ways? I begi…

    Blame the ongoing mess in the country on Nigerians who aided the CIA to reward dangerous, insensitive, dishonest, mean, cruel, partial, egoistic, religious, fundamendalist, conscienceless human being like MOHAMMADU BUHARI with the presidency of Nigeria with his evil track record. See why most Africans and Europeans still wonder why Nigeria has not and will not make it to the promised land? In spite of our oil well wealth-He is a Fulani oligarch who does not believe in equality before the law! That is why he has refused to allow Dasuki ati Kanu and Akpos of NIMSA go home free men-The way he jailed Lateef Jakande, Jim Nwobodo, Ambrose Ali, Pa Adekunle Ajasin, Chief Ayo Ojewumi on cases that had no foundation in Law. But allowed Awwal Ibrahim, the then Niger State governor, who was arrested in Heathrow Airport in London with 14 million pounds sterling and several millions of Niara and dollars to go home a free man!! Even allowed Shehu Kangiwa, Sokoto State Governor who conducted and supervised the famous Bakolori Massacre of poor peasant farmers whose land were appropriated without compesation to be set free-So who is that person with no sense of history to tell me that Buhari is a changed man–who Syxoinka or Obj abi na Falani ati Senior house boy to Buhari— Sagay!? Buhari of yesterday is the same luciferic person–he will never change-
