Buhari Approves 8.5 Million Dollars for the Evacuation of Nigerians displaced by the Russia-Ukrain War.

The sum of 3.5 million dollars, which amounts to about Three Billion, Five Hundred and Thirty-four Million naira (3,534,000,000), has been approved by the president, Muhammad Buhari, for the evacuation of Nigeria who a displaced in various countries surrounding Ukraine, such as Romania, Hungary, and Poland. This news was announced by the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Zubairu Dada alongside the Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management, Sadiya Umar Farouk.

Dada said that Air Peace and Max Air airlines have been contracted to provide three aircraft and run as many shifts as possible.

Buhari Approves 8.5 Million Dollars for the Evacuation of Nigerians displaced by the Russia-Ukrain War.

This announcement is coming about a week after the invasion of Ukraine by Russia; an invasion that caused many, citizens and non-citizens alike, to flee Ukraine. Now, it’s a good thing that the Nigerian government has FINALLY arranged for the evacuation of its citizens (better late than never, I guess), but there’s another big question: is the budgeted amount for this sum reasonable?

Some social media users are strongly of the opinion that the budgeted some is ridiculously much, while implying that this just another avenue for Nigeria’s money to be siphoned.

(In times like this, we are sadly reminded that our great nation does not have an airline.) We hope the displaced Nigerians get all the help they need.

May I simply say what a relief to uncover somebody that really understands what theyre discussing over the internet. You certainly know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people really need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that youre not more popular because you certainly have the gift.

The next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesnt fail me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read through, but I actually thought you would have something useful to say. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could fix if you werent too busy searching for attention.
