Famous Nigerian Catholic priest, Rev Fr Chinenye Oluoma, has called on Nigerians to query their various state governors on what they did with the 13 per cent derivation fund released by President Muhammadu Buhari.


Fr Oluoma said it’s now known to Nigerians those who don’t want restructuring and devolution in the country.


He disclosed this on Monday via his Twitter handle.


The statement followed the revelation by Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State that President Buhari had released the withheld 13 per cent derivation fund owed to the Niger Delta states from 1999 to the present.


Recall that Governor Wike had, during a project commissioning in Rivers, revealed that the money used in building the projects in the state was from the money President Buhari released to the Niger Delta states.


The famous cleric wrote: “If your state is in NDDC, Wike just revealed that Buhari paid all of them their withheld 13% derivation. See all the projects Wike did in Rivers State, what did your governor do?


“This Buhari that some people love to hate and others love to criticize is not a saint, but he’s unraveling the real criminals in Nigerian politics.


“If you take pleasure in criticizing the federal government but are not so mad now as to occupy your state government house, you are not ready for the redemption of Nigeria.


“I won’t fall for the temptation of labelling you with invective but justifiable adjectives. I have almost passed out shouting and shrieking about restructuring and devolution at the Federal government. It is very clear now that those who don’t want restructuring and devolution.


“It just occurred to me that they are the ones who can make it happen or not happen. It is obvious they don’t want it because it will expose their indolence and dubious dealings in the name of governance. Nigeria is a chimaera of some sort, and we are the willing accomplices.”
