ASUU Is On Strike! ! See Photos Of The N1. 4bn 2022 Toyota Land Cruisers Buhari Bought For Niger Republic; Shehu Sani Reacts
The Nigerian government’ s generosity to its neighbour has ignited a public outrage and questions on why President Muhammadu Buhari should pruchase vehicles to the tune of N1. 4 billion for Niger Republic amid Nigeria’ s imminent needs.
” Why should such amount be given to Niger Republic when public universities in Nigeria remained closed for about five months owing to funds, ” a concerned Nigerian bewailed.
On Twitter, Shehu Sani, a former Senator from Kaduna central subtly blamed the National Assembly for not living up to its responsibilities.
He wrote: ” The question is, how comes the purchase of vehicles for the Government of Niger Republic escaped the oversight functions of the National Assembly. ”
Meanwhile, popular social media influencer, David Hundeyin, who exposed the news to Nigerians shared photos of the car gifts to Niger Republic.
He captioned: ” 2022 Toyota Landcruiser V8. These are the vehicles that Buhari has bought for Niger Republic to fight insecurity. ”
In another story, the federal government justified the approval of the amount for the purchase of vehicles for Niger Republic.
The Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Mrs. Zainab Ahmed noted that the President has the liberty to access what is in the best interest of the country.
