Bill Gates In Nigeria, Donates $1.6b, Faults Buhari

Chairman, Bill and Melinda Foundation, Bill Gates, yesterday in Abuja, faulted the Federal Government’s Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, ERGP, saying though the government identified investing in the people as one of its three strategic objectives, its execution priorities did not reflect people’s needs.

He also said Nigeria is one of the most dangerous places in the world to give birth with the fourth worst maternal mortality rate in the world, ahead of only Sierra Leone, Central African Republic and Chad.

Gates, who stated this at expanded National Economic Council, NEC, presided over by Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, said Nigeria’s fiscal situation was at a low equilibrium, adding that in return for low levels of service, people pay low levels of tax.

The philanthropist disclosed that his foundation’s biggest office in Africa was Nigeria, where he had committed over $1.6 billion so far, with the intention of increasing his commitment in the country.

He said Nigeria had unmatched economic potential but that what became of the potential depended on the choices its leaders make.
Gates said: “The most important choice you can make is to maximize your greatest resource, the Nigerian people. Nigeria will thrive when every Nigerian is able to thrive.

“If you invest in their health, education and opportunities, the human capital, we are talking about today, then they will lay the foundation for sustained prosperity. If you don’t, however, then it is very important to recognise that there will be a sharp limit on how much the country can grow.

Sorry to ask Endy Edeson where is the money he donated cos #1.6b no b small money, before he lives they have shared the money and the poor people keep dying in poverty and they the powerful keep waxing stronger.. He told them the truth and they will still do as they used to do that's selfish greedy heartless leaders for you but nothing spoil we must survive.

Endy Edeson

Mac, the 1.6 billion dollars is the overrall money he has donated so far and I think it was used to fight polio and other developmental purposes but I can't actually tell if the Nigerian officials squandered the money

Johnson Ahile

Nice one Bill Gates for telling Buhari the truth

Jeremiah Ademolu

Bill Gate said it d way it is in our country, probably people like El-rufai thought he's here to tell lies just d way they use to

Endy Edeson

@Jeremiah & Ahile: That's why I like the whites . They don't have time for compromise or hypocrisy

Am I dreaming....?

Endy Edeson

@Ola: This is morning hour . You are not dreaming. You are reading Edeson Online News. Bill Gates is in Nigeria. Do you want to see him?😎

Pretty Diamond

Yes so True Nigeria is a dangerous place to give birth that is the reason I traveled out of that country.

Endy Edeson

@Pretty, wow! really? Are you now pregnant in Italy? For me? Just kidding 😂👫Lolz

Bill Gates is just reiterating what some of us have been saying. Dr Obi Ezekweseli, prof. Soludo, Emir Sanusi, etc called Buhari economic policies OBSOLETE. The Financial Time, UK:" Buhari's economic policies are the height of foolishness". Anybody can Google it. If you study the emergence of Singapore, Malaysia, China, etc you will understand what we are saying
