Obayi said, “It’s a fully residential university. The school won’ t allow students go out and do anything, but lecturers live in their different houses, so if they want to do anything, everyone is free to go and do whatever they want.

“With lecturers, you can’t be asking who wants to vote and who doesn’t want to vote. As I said, the elections would hold on Saturdays, so you can’ t control the movement of people.”

An admissions officer, Baze University, who gave his name simply as Usman, also said he did not believe the school, which has 1 ,300 students, would release the students to vote.

“They have spent $16 million buying mosquito nets. I did not get it, but maybe some people have gotten it. I didn’t get it. But I feel that, that’s my personal opinion, $16 million is enough to fumigate Nigeria,” she said.

Generally, Mrs Buhari did not agree with the method adopted for the programme, Channels TV reports.

She said, “I was expecting the social investment programme, N500 billion to be utilised in a different method; in order to achieve the aim. But I don’t know the method they used. Most of the Northern States did not get the money. I don’t know – my state didn’t get the money. I don’t know if your state got the money.”

In her words, Mrs Buhari explained that the programme worked well in some state and that for other states where it did not succeed, a different approach should have been used.

She added, “In my state, one local government benefitted from it, out of 22 local governments. I didn’t’ ask what happened and I don’t want to know.”

revelation: obasanjo reveals nigeria’s major problem REVELATION: Obasanjo reveals Nigeria’s major problem Olusegun Obasanjo 2

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo says policy implementation was a major problem hindering Nigeria’s growth and development.

Obasanjo said this in Ibadan on Saturday at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA).

He said: “Our problem in this country has always been that of implementation. The 25-year Oyo State Government Agriculture Policy Framework presented is a good thing.

“We have formulated several policies in the past that suffered implementation. I hope your successor will implement it”.

Obasanjo added that technology, finance and human resources were challenges facing agricultural development.

He added, “If you go into agriculture you may not be rich like Dangote, but you will be satisfied and comfortable.

“You will be comfortable because you are close to nature. Every individual is a stakeholder in the agriculture value-chain.

”If you are not a farmer, then you must be a consumer. If you are not a farmer, you can encourage a farmer”.
