The Namibian government has banned government officials from buying new cars till 2025, a decision taken to mitigate the effect of the outbreak of Coronavirus in the country.

President Hage Geingob who made the announcement on Twitter on Thursday May 14, also directed a cap on monthly fuel consumption by public office holders.

He said the decision would save the country 200 million Namibian dollars (US$10.7 million), which will be directed "to urgent priorities, specifically at a time when the country is dealing with the health and economic implications of COVID-19".

The statement read in parts;
"Government will not order a new vehicle fleet for the Executive and Public Office Bearers for the period 2020-2025.
“Savings of 200 million Namibia dollars (about $10.8 million) will be directed to urgent priority areas."

Despite been born and bred in PH, I always believed in Buhari. I thought he was a strong leader who could change the entire political template of Nigeria; the man who will reduce the cost of governance; eliminate corruption; create stronger institution and reduce excesses of the legislative and judiciary; but sadly, his government has woefully encouraged this excesses; such that the APC government at the moment makes the very corrupt PDP government looks like a saint. I am sure this pandemic will ONLY allow more looting and embezzlement by this saintly and holy government. At the moment, I heard about $1 million is spent daily on feed invisible children and lizards that are inside schools. What a sham!

government was designed solely for the welfare of the people.

There you have it.
A serious, prudent, focused and visionary leader truly committed to a people-centric government.

What do we have in Nigeria? One "Mr. Integrity" budgeting billions of naira for his globetrotting and feeding, his Minister of Disaster feeding phantom "school children" with almost N1billion daily and a whopping N37billion earmarked for his rubber-stamp legislature for doing his bidding, while hiding under the guise of some non-existing renovation works.

Shameless thieves!

That's a good one, how can government of Nigeria be buying brand new suv of N45m plus just to flex around. Our society needs serious reorientation. People are just criminally minded.
