President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has come under heavy criticisms from Nigerians over leaked documents showing that he signed a whopping $422,820,00 for his hotel reservation in New York during the just-concluded United Nations General Assembly, UNGA, held between September 18 and 22, 2023.
The leaked document also shows that Tinubu spent an additional $84,564.00 on incidents to cover meals, taxis, and other expenses.
The total sum of Tinubu and his close aides’ expenses amounted to over $507,384,000, approximately N507,000,000 million naira in just 7 days. This does not include the total expenses that other government ministers, state governors, and MDA heads incur under the provisions of their respective state governments and ministries.
This revelation is coming on the backdrop of calls by the Nigerian government for citizens to make sacrifices in the wake of the removal of fuel subsidies by the federal government, which has led to an exponential increase in the prices of food items and other consumables, which has caused untold hardship to millions of Nigerians.
Similarly, lawmakers have embarked on a plan to purchase SUV vehicles for themselves costing billions of naira at the expense of the biting hardship citizens are experiencing.
