A coalition of Nigerian Patriots at home and in Diaspora, Dream Nigeria Movement, (DNM) has lambasted President Muhammadu Buhari for the purchase of Toyota Prado SUVs worth N1.4 billion for Niger Republic as confirmed by the minister of Finance, Zainab Ahmed.
The group wondered why President Buhari should be charitable to the neigbouring country while university lecturers and students have been at home for the past five months, describing the attitude of the president to insensitive to the plights of Nigerians students and infrastructural decay.
The spokesman of Dream Nigeria Movement Mr Timothy Nwachukwu in a statement berated President Buhari for the purchase of the vehicles, describing his action as gross irresponsibility, an affront on the Nigerian Nation and an impeachable offence.
“The Honourable Minister of finance was quoted to have said that “President Buhari has the right to make his own assessment of situations and act on his prerogative as the financial support was based on a request by the Nigerien Government.
“The lecturers are on strike for over five months over paucity of funds to meet their demand. The President demonstrated his disdain for the educational development of the Nigerian youths by prioritising the empowerment of his kinsmen in Niger Republic”.
The group commended Mr. David Hundeyin, An Nigerian born Canada based investigative journalist who made the revelation of the purchase of vehicles for Niger Republic which was hidden from the public domain.
Nwachukwu reiterated it’s earlier call for the National Assembly members to rescue Nigeria from the clumsy hands of Buhari who is bent on destroying every fabric that is left of our nation.
The group further called on the Nigeria Senators to remove the Senate President to pave way for impeachment proceedings to commence against president Buhari as Sen. President Lawan has become a clog on the wheels of the progress of Nigeria.
