2022 Budget: Buhari, Osinbajo To Spend 508m On Food As Hunger Bites Nigerians by BeeBeeOoh(m): 10:10pm On Oct 11, 2021
This alarming budget comes as food prices continue to soar under Mr Buhari’s watch.

mid dire hunger necessitated by food price inflation in Nigeria, the President Muhammadu Buhari regime has proposed to spend an alarming N508 million on food and catering supplies for the State House in 2022.

A copy of the 2023 Appropriation Bill seen by Peoples Gazette, shows that N301,138,860 has been proposed for “food stuff/catering supplies”.

Another N30,652,500 will go for “refreshment and meals”. These figures are supposed to take care of feeding at Mr Buhari’s wing of the State House.

For Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, N156,662,400 is proposed for “food stuff/catering supplies”, and another N20,264,397 for “meals and refreshments.”

This comes amid a hike in food prices across the country and plans by Mr Buhari’s regime to borrow to finance the N6.258 trillion deficit in the proposed 2022 budget.

In his Independence Day celebration speech, Mr Buhari admitted that there is food price hike under his watch, blaming it on middlemen’s drive for excess profit.

The Gazette in a market survey had reported a bag of beans that formerly sold for N30,000 now selling for N100,000, while cooking gas that was N3,500 now sells for N8,000.

According to the Nigerian Domestic and Foreign Debt Report published this year by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), the country’s total public debt under Mr Buhari’s watch as of September 2020 stood at N32.2 trillion ($84.57 billion).

In July, the United Nations Development Programme’s Global Environment Facility (UNDP-GEF) warned of a looming food crisis in Nigeria, estimating about 13 million Nigerians to face food insecurity.

Prices of food have increased globally which of course has increased budget.

osinbanjo and Buhari were campaigning, they claimed Gej Budget for Food was Criminal .
See them doing the same, I remember the propaganda that claimed buhari only eats gworo and osinbanjo fasts everyday so a slice of bread and one milo sachet is good to go.
They claimed they'll reduce state house budget to NYSC Allowee grin...

Bottomline Anyone that's campaigning on the lines or being morally upright and just is a criminal in wait... They should tell us how they'll rescue Nigeria...

Nothing to worry about here

This is not a news...The amount is still reasonable since they will not be the only one spending it.

The spare Tyre to the bullion van thief called osibanjo is busy with 2023 while one seed of akara is now #300 under their watch. Let them come and become president, the abiola treatment will be a child's play. You don't please God by being useless, Esther fought for her people but osibanjo folded his hands for 8 years without speaking truth to power, he is no better than the servant who hid his talent so he can return it back to his master! God won't allow such a servant lead his people.

This is even better than Jonathan who budgeted 1 billion naira for food.
My calculation then gave an estimation of 1 million for breakfast, 1 million for lunch, 1 million for dinner each day of that year.
And food wasn't as expensive as it is now.

No true leader in this country.
This current budget also is about 1.5 million naira daily.
Are the plates disposables. Even with foreign visitors, you shouldn't spend up to that
