In 1985, IBB was the president of Nigeria and Buhari was the former Head of state.. .28 years later, IBB and Buhari are still contesting for President.. .. They are still saying the youth is the future leader..... jst thinkin

"I received this from my friend Comrade Abubakar Momoh and I thought I
should share it with you:
1. Crude Oil production/day - 2.5M barrels
2. Current Price = $113/barrel
3. Daily Sales = 2.5M x 113 = $282.5million
4. Monthly Sales = 282.5M x 30days = $8.475billion
5. Yearly Sales = $8.475billion x 12 = $101.7billion
6. Naira Equivalent = 101.7billion x #160 = 16.272trillion Naira per
7. Nigeria's budget for 2012 = 4.5trillion Naira.
Abu's addendum:
Even if you take 90% of 16.272trillion naira as the Fed Govt's Share
of the barrel, which comes to 14.645 trillion naira we still expect
over 10 trillion surplus!!! Now, the question is: Where is the
surplus going?!(Analysis by Femi Falana (Lagos lawyer/Activist on Channels Tv).
My own addition,
Done in this way, if a further cost is deducted, say, the servicing of
external debt, the excuses for poor infrastructure development salts
away. This is truly the Arithmetic of Nigeria's Underdevelopment." - OP
