    It has been stories of we will,we shall,we are trying to ,we wanted to etc and 30 months have come and gone, yet buhari have done absolute nothing on the positive side other than ruining Nigerian economy ,destroying the cohesion of Nigeria and planting hate in the hearts of Nigerians through his unjust, inequitable, discriminatory ,vindictive government.
    May God never allow Nigeria see this kind of government again.

      Amen o!
      Buhari is a calamity to Nigeria. May God remove him by whatever means so that healing can begin to take place in our land.

      Cohesion destruction and hatred was started by igbo. Igbo cause all the tension and divisions in nigeyia today because gej lost election.
      Mind you buhari administration has done lot of things, you need to open your eyes so you can see.

    Regularly, we are inundated with report of increase in revenue from Inland revenue, Customs and a host of other Agencies yet poverty is ravaging the masses and FG is borrowing from international financial organisations. Please can someone tell Nigerians where this revenues are going to that the Federal Government still go borrowing and spreading poverty in the land blessed with everything ? Something is wrong somewhere that we do not know, Nigerians demand explanation.

    Out of the rubble, chaos and troubles we shall prevail…Buhari’s administration and all those who make this happen will make a landmark that others MUST follow or excel to. Something that seems almost impossible in the past suddenly is possible….gradually we shall have a system that funds itself and our dependence on oil will naturally fiddle down. Nigeria must progress no matter who is president…it only takes one man to set the pace and he is Buhari.

    • Pluti

      She is the only better part of Buhari’s cabinet, though not that she’s fantastic but she’s better than others. The ministry of Finance needs to engage more in the life of the citizens cos we don suffer for this country

    She said the highest VAT collection of N86.71 billion was achieved in September 2017, while N84.67 billion and N83.315 billion were recorded in May and October.

    Yawn! This is the role of the National Bureau of Statistics — not the minister of finance.

    “Improving VAT and other tax collections is key to Nigeria’s revenue strategy.’’

    This can only be the reason for the increase in VAT. After all, Nigeria has still not recovered from recession, hence the increase in VAT collection can’t have come from increased economic activities. Tax collection in Nigeria leaves much to be desired.

    BTW has anyone noticed the number of expensive jewellery this lady minister is wearing, not to mention the makeover in the photo. You know when a woman starts to ‘chop’; they spend it on makeover, new hairdo, expensive jewellery, designer hand-bags, shoes, clothes. etc. She might well be on her way to becoming the next ‘Diezani’.

    Meanwhile Mr. Magoo is resigned to catching the so-called high-profile crooks, so he rewrites the EFCC Act, so that he can catch small fish, namely human traffickers, to create an illusion of success.
