would i be a bad person for wanting these guys dead
i wish for peace and all, but in this case, i wish for death. God please forgive me, but i fail to see no other way in my limited human wisdom.
why will someone be getting 3 cars every 4 years especially when most new cars already have warranties that extend beyond that period, some even up to 10 years.
you can't complete projects, you always always always complain about paucity of funds, you say you are not magicians, you tell citizens to go and die, you can't even provide sealed drainages which serve as sidewalks in modern countries in 2016. yet you want 3 cars every 4 years
God, i just can't see any other way

Legal stealing. I hope we'd condemn all of them and not narrow it down to a palatable chain tied to just one of them. Saraki. That's us. We love to narrow down to appease our bias. Their is a thief in a lot of us.
You support your own thief but castigate the thief your neighbour idolizes after shredding your neighbour's conscience apart. And your own conscience? Smh. Not that any of you is better.

Happy days continue for former presidents
By Festus Owete

Nigeria's former presidents and heads of state who are still alive
should get an even better deal from the federal government this year
following plans by the National Assembly to review their monthly welfare
The legislature is planning to increase the former leaders' package from
N250 million proposed in the 2010 budget to about N2 billion.
The chairman of the House of Representatives committee on appropriation,
Ayo Adeseun, disclosed this in an exclusive interview with NEXT.
The money is meant to take care of the former leaders' pension,
medicare, yearly vacation abroad, offices and general maintenance. This
is besides the N500,000 each of the former leaders is reportedly paid
whenever they attend the Council of State meeting, which is held
Only seven out of the 12 presidents and heads of states who have ruled
the country are still alive. They are Yakubu Gowon (1966-1975), Olusegun
Obasanjo (1975-1979 and 1999-2007), Shehu Shagari (1979-1983), Muhammadu
Buhari (1983-1985), and Ibrahim Babangida (1985-1993). The others are
Ernest Shonekan (Aug 1993-November 17, 1993), and Abdulsalam Abubakar
Those who have passed on are Abubakar Tafawa Balewa (prime minister),
Aguiyi-Ironsi, amilitary general (Jan 1966-July 1966), Nnamdi Azikiwe
(ceremonial president), Murtala Muhammed and Sani Abacha, both of who
were military rulers.
Mr. Adeseun, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Oyo State
said the former leaders deserved better treatment because of the
services they rendered to the country, adding that they will convince
the executive arm during the budget defence sessions on the planned
increase. The lawmaker stated that the N250 million in the 2010 budget
is inadequate for the welfare of the leaders, due to the rising cost of
living and other issues.
He also said that the vehicles for the former leaders are due for
replacement. "Yes, I am aware of the allocation, but we think it is
inadequate," he said. "We think we should review the allocation to about
N2 billion, if it is the one you are talking about. This money is meant
to take care of their accommodation, vehicles, medical expenses and
other allowances. These are people who have served this nation and they
should be properly taken care of."
Asked how the lawmakers would convince the executive on the matter, the
lawmaker said "it is not for them to convince us, we will convince them.
They are still coming to defend the budget and so during our interaction
we will talk about it."
The welfare train
Allocations for the former leaders' welfare began in 2005, when a total
of N140 million was set aside for them in that year's budget.
Subsequently, the following allocations were made - N105 million (2006);
N24 million (2008) and N250 million (2009). However, no allocation was
made in the 2007 budget. It may have been integrated into another item
under the office of the SGF.
Until 2008 when the allocation was brought under the Office of the
Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), it was treated
under the Presidency or State House.
The emolument is different from that of the sitting president, who takes
home N3.5 million annually. The president also earns various forms of
There have been many contentious issues over the welfare package and
allowances of the former presidents and heads of state. For instance,
several human rights activists have argued that former military leaders
should not be entitled to the package because they rebelled against the
Nigerian state by seizing power in military coup d'etat.
There have also been allegations that the emoluments of the former
leaders is politicised by sitting governments. For instance, in November
2008, the federal government allegedly withdrew the vehicles attached to
Mr. Buhari because of his role in the planned formation of a mega party
by opposition figures in the country to challenge the ruling PDP. Mr.
Buhari was the presidential candidate of the opposition All Nigeria
Peoples Party (ANPP) in 2003 and 2007 elections.
But the Office of the SGF refuted the claim. According to Salisu
Dambatta, a deputy director (information) in the office of the SGF, in a
statement, "It is normal to allocate vehicles to all former presidents
and replace such vehicles when the need arises. In line with that
practice, General Buhari's vehicle was replaced in 2008 with a new one."
On the regularity of the payments, Mr. Dambatta said "Some of the
packages are paid as and when due, while some are paid on a quarterly
basis. All benefits former heads of state are treated equally. For the
avoidance of doubt, government has never stopped General Buhari's
A spokesperson of The Buhari Organisation (TBO), Osita Okechukwu,
however told NEXT last Thursday that the Peugeot car recovered from the
former head of state is yet to be returned to him.
Mr. Okechukwu, who is also the spokesperson of the opposition Conference
of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP), revealed that it was the Sani
Abacha administration that gave Mr. Buhari the vehicle, noting that
"even Obasanjo did not give him anything."
That N500, 000 allowance
Aside from the welfare package, each of the former leaders who are
automatic members of the Council of State collects N500,000 whenever
they attend the meeting.
This is included in the "Certain Political and Judicial Officer Holders
(Salaries and Allowances, etc) Act" that was prepared by the Revenue
Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).
The Council of State is an advisory body which meets six times a year to
deliberate and take decision on crucial issues affecting the country.
Membership of the council, according to Section 153 (1)(b), paragraph 5
includes the president, who shall be chairman; the vice president, who
shall be the deputy chairman and all former presidents of the federation
and former heads of government.
It also includes all former chief justices of Nigeria, the president of
the senate, the speaker of the House of Representatives, the 36 state
governors and the Attorney General of the Federation.
