Presidency Clarifies False Claims on President Buhari’s Discussion with World Bank President
Claims that President Buhari is focused only on the Northern region of the country are false and result from a misunderstanding of the actual discussions which took place.
A statement issued by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, explains that President Buhari’s request for assistance from the World Bank to rebuild the North-east was because of the Boko Haram insurgency which has devastated the region.
Since 2009, The Northeast region has been attacked by Boko Haram insurgents who have blown up homes, hospitals, villages, towns and cities. Up to 20,000 lives have been lost while properties and public infrastructure have been destroyed.
The crisis has put the region in dire need of huge external support for its recovery and this has led the president to seek assistance from the World Bank.
