House Of Representative Buying Of Cars During CODVIC-19 Outbreak Causes Outrage by dre11(m): 10:04am On Mar 28
In spite of the COVID-19 pandemic, members of the House of Representatives have started getting some of the 400 Toyota Camry 2020 as earlier decided by the lower legislative chamber.

Although the decision to buy the vehicles was taken on February 5, 2020, the timing of distribution of the cars has attracted criticisms from different quarters.

Apart from keeping the cost secret, the angst against the lawmakers was fuelled by the complacent display of the cars at the parking lots of the National Assembly.

An angry critic, Frederick Odorige, said: “These legislators finalised plans to buy these vehicles during a closed door session on 5 February 2020 when COVID-19 was already spreading and other countries were planning and taking concrete actions against the deadly virus.

“Nigerian politicians are very wicked and insensitive. Does it mean that they were trekking to the legislature or they had no personal vehicles before now? Did they swear an oath never to make a sacrifice for Nigerians?

“They just approved N50 billion to be given to some Nigerians as loans because of Covid-19, which will attract interest. Not palliative measures. It means that Nigerians who are not in government can never enjoy from the country.

“Sensible parliamentarians are currently donating their salaries in other countries. The ones in Nigeria receive the highest in the world and will continue to receive the same amount even as they stay at home because of the virus.”

This is the bad thing about leadership in today's Nigeria-gross callousness, insensible and irresponsibility. Coronavirus will locate all of them.Wicked souls.

When the world is donating to stop the pandemic these greedy mofos are more concerned in sharing cars they already have... An average legislator has nothing less than 3 exotic cars.

These animals in human skin must understand that the masses are angry. A country where the elites don’t care about us. A country where hunger is hitting hard on families because of the stay at home shutdown. The only country in world where Coronavirus is hitting hard and yet no good medical facilities, no welfare package for the poor, yet these idiots have the temerity to buy exotic cars for the criminal reps. Rather than wallow in death, it’s high time we march to take our country back.

A country where billions are carted away, where lives mean nothing. A country where the elites have used religion and tribe to divide. A country where only death and Coronavirus is a free gift worthy for the masses, but not food.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, will make a violent revolution possible

Damnnnnn niggarrr

Isoright
Am a real niggarrr and a street niggarrr

Am not a pretender and i can never pretend
Those people up there are better than we the common masses on the street

We will do worse if we get the chance!

The reason a lot of Shit is going on in this country is the fact that we don't actually hate corruption the way we pretend to
We are only angry because we are not the one carrying out the corruption!

Bunch of fuckkking hypocrites

True leadership is all about sacrifice and weathering the storm for the comfort of others at one's own discomfort.Even if it is normal or part of statutory provision this is not the ideal time for merrymaking or taking delivery of exotic cars while hepless,j penniless and hungry Nigerians have their movement restricted because of the dreaded disease call Coronavirus rampaging and ravaging the world.We have ourselves to blame because we continue to vote for wrong people and keep unnecessary silence where we need to speak up and advance our right as true citizens because of casual gain,tribal and religious sentiments.
