Vice President Namadi Sambo To Get A N2billion Home by razznaija(f): 5:56am On Dec 05, 2012


Our Vice President is getting a home worth N2 billion from the government of Nigeria. There's a N50bn budget for the Federal Capital Territory and N2bn, according to the FCT Minister Bala Mohammed, is going into the construction of the official residence of Vice President Namadi Sambo, while N300 million is for the construction of the official residences of Senate president David Mark and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu; the Speaker, Aminu Tambuwal; and his deputy, Emeka Ihedioha.

They've been planning to build this house since last year.

By the way, when David Mark and Tambuwal leave office, they will "buy" the houses that are currently being built and the government will need to build new houses for the next speaker and senate president.

naptu2: FEC approves N7.1bn contract for design & construction of a new official residence for Nigeria's VP


December 24, 2009


The Federal Executive Council has approved a N7.1 bn contract for the design and construction, by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc, of a new official residence for the vice-president of Nigeria. The new official residence is to be built in 20 months in the Presidential Villa in the Three Arms Zone, Abuja.

Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, addressed journalists and said “Council gave approval for the award of contract for the design and construction of the residence of the vice-president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in the Three Arms Zone, Abuja, in favour of Messrs Julius Berger Plc. in the sum of N7,065,742.40, with 20 months as completion period.

“The vice-president currently resides at the Akinola Aguda House, within the precincts of the Presidential Villa, which is designed as a guest house for the President.”

The MinisterFederal Capital Territory, Adamu Aliero, explained that due to security considerations the contract was not awarded to Julius Berger through an open bidding process.

He said, “We did not advertise it for security reasons because you cannot subject the house of the number two man to public scrutiny. We did what we call selective bidding,” Julius Berger Nigeria Plc. was selected because of their experience in constructing the Presidential Villa and National Assembly complexes.”

Explaining why the building of a residence for the VP is considered a priority in Nigeria today despite the magnitude of problems facing the citizens of the country, the minister said “The vice-President is staying in a guest house meant for visiting heads of state.

“It is not right, it is not befitting for the vice-president. The former administration decided to give the house of the vice-president to the Chief Justice of Nigeria, which was in line with what was contained in the Abuja masterplan.

“It became imperative for us to provide accommodation for the vice-president. The vice-president has no accommodation; certainly you will agree with me that it is unbecoming for any government not to provide accommodation for its vice-president.

“It is unbecoming for the vice-president to stay in a guest house. We will now embark on the construction of a befitting residence for the vice-president.”

Waste of billions! This guy doesn't do anything at all. Instead of them to be thinking giving a constitutional role, no matter how small to the vice president, at leat let him work for his monthly pay, they are thinking of wasting our money on him and his family in the name of official residence! Smh.

I think i am going to come back home and set up a kidnapping syndicate to start kidnapping relatives of these assholes in Government. We Nigerians just sit back and look like mugus while these people just screw us like this.We deserve the type of leadership we get since we elected these people into office willingly.We are a country of epic morons who can not seem to do anything right.

Come next election we will be clamoring for the same people to return to power.I wish i was never born in this cursed nation of educated and uneducated idiots.We like bragging about how good we are at academics but what have we actually done with that knowledge Absolutely nothing! We Nigerians are a disgrace to the human race.10 years from now the situation will remain the same because as Nigerians we will never apply common sense and honesty when choosing our leaders.Our pockets always comes first to the detriment of our communities and our nation.

To make matters worse when someone who wants to make a real change comes out and start clamoring for real change we shout him down,laugh at him or just plain ignore him.It is as if we have being genetically engineered to be selfish,astonishingly stup*d ,corrupt ,dishonest ,criminal minded ,oppressive, arrogant,tribalistic,incompetent,deceptive,heartless,careless and regressive.Our people are just like mindless drones who just follow the tide even if it will drown them.If that fact alone does not depict how unintelligent we are as a people then i don't know what will.Welcome to Nigeria the country that enjoys suffering and smiling,the country were self injury is inflicted time and time again without any remorse or change of heart.

I don't blame, i blame nigerians who voted that dumb asshole in the name of "i'm voting for the person not the party" do they think anything good could have come out of PDP I just hope we've learnt lesson from this. Let's endure the looting and hope the nation don't crash before the time we have the power to decide who would rule us next. Until then, let's fold our arms and watch them loot for we have no power whatsoever to do anything against it.

You see what you did right there? That is what i was talking about in my comment that when someone speak the truth ,our own people will shout him down or laugh at him.Until we stop this non progressive behavior of always countering each other in defense of these corrupt leader we will never move forward.How does your countering me help the average Nigerian or educate the voters

Come here to South Africa and see how South Africans hold their leaders accountable.Here the Government is scared of the people unlike like Nigeria where the people are scared of the Government.Contribute constructive comments and stop countering comments like mine in this manner.You have no idea of my plans or what i done or plan to do in Nigeria so i find it sad that you chose to mock me instead of criticizing the Government.

From your comment it seems you find this topic funny ,maybe you are one of the beneficiaries of such corruption hence the "abeg waka" response to my comment.Do you think the Arab spring would have happened if the Arabs reasoned like us Nigerians?? The people who initiated the Egyptian uprising were based home and Abroad.Egyptians all over the work worked in unison to remove Mubarak. With Attitudes like yours,how can that happen in Nigeria

Seriously we need revolution in this country unless the rich will be getting richer and the poor will bs getting poorer. Come to think of it what are these people doing about 50% of Nigeria youth that are unemployed. Instead they will tell us they want to build zoe cost housing estate for citizen of which they can't afford.
