When I become the President of Nigeria, every youth corp member’s allowance will be N50k monthly

Published

Has it been  possible for a non-politician to get into politics newly and become the president of a country ? – Yes. Donald Trump did it.

Another possibility is the case of a Sahara reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore who carries on his campaign promises ahead of the 2019 presidential elections and this time has a big hook, he said

 ‘If You’re A Youth Corps Member (“Corper”) And You Agree To Serve Anywhere In Nigeria You’re Posted Your Take Home Allowance Will Be N50,000 starting From May 29, 2019, When I Become The President of The Federal Republic of Nigeria’.
‘It Will Be A New Day For The SHORTCHANGED Youths Of Nigeria. If Former Oil Minister Diezani And Her Cohorts Could Steal Over $2 billion For Themselves, Youth Corp Members Deserve Decent Renuemeration. Corpers Serving In Volatile States (Borno, Bayelsa, Rivers, Yobe, Zamfara, Benue, Plateau) Will Get Life Insurance Worth N10million In Case Anything Untowards Happen To Them. You All Are On Our Mind’.

Well, the above statement is not different from what other failing and failed politicians in Nigeria have said or will say.
So,

Omoyele also mentioned that

 ‘do You Know That Over 30,000 Niger Delta militants in the Federal “Amnesty Programme” Receive N135,00 per month? They get N65,000 as “Bush Allowance” and N70,000 as “Feeding Allowance”. This is separate from school fees in private schools and foreign universities, air tickets in addition to looting. The costs are ginormous to the extent that President Buhari had to fire PAUL Boroh a few days ago. Nigeria Can Certainly Afford N50,000 as starting “allawee” for its corp members. They deserve decent bush and feeding allowances too!’.

And that is indirectly true as militants or ex-militants are now big boys in their habitat. Cases of militancy being sponsored by politician is not known but there is a light in that.

Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari educational qualification has created waves across the nation. Leaving many Nigerians in disbelief, if the incumbent president is qualified to run for presidential seat again.

Before emergence of Buhari as Nigerian President in 2015, through APC. PDP the opposition party crossed all length to ensure the disqualification of Buhari from elections. Claiming he does not posses the minimum educational requirement and therefore he is not qualified to run for the presidential post. But the electoral body, INEC the  a “go-ahead” to Buhari prior to the presentation of a debatable affidavit.

According to Nigerian Constitution, one is qualied to run for presidency if:

  • he is a citizen of Nigeria by birth;
  • he has attained the age of thirty five years;
  • he is a member of a political party and is sponsored by that political party;
  • he has been educated up to at least School Certificate level or its equivalent.

The last requirement is what has given room to all angles of debate over Buhari’s emergence as President.

News following the case of educational qualification of Nigeria’s current president, President Buhari is a confirmation from US War College which says Muhammadu Buhari was enrolled but not prior to any credentials.

President Buhari attended the college in the 90s and it is believed that he submitted a cert which qualified him for a professional course at US war college.

Unfortunately, the college didn’t require any form of qualification for enrollment, not until year 2000 when Master of Strategic Studies was introduced.

President Buhari currently has not made any response to this as of the time of this post. He already presented an attestation from the West Africa Examination Council, Nigeria to INEC. But that didn’t settle the dust surrounding the authenticity of the certificate.

Nigerians are still looking forward to a tide turning election in 2019.
