Obi: FG Plans To Use 3000 Professors Annual Pay For Vice President's Houses by DesChyko: 12:33am On Dec 05, 2023
Peter Obi: "Even as I am still studying the 2024 fiscal budget as presented to the National Assembly last week, I cannot wait as I am compelled to ask : what is exactly wrong with us as a country?"

"I ask this question because it is hard for me to understand some of the recent happenings in our nation, in these critical times. The recent news about a budget provision of N15 billion for the construction of a new residence for the Vice President is both shocking and disheartening, considering the many important challenges facing our nation.

"Just recently in the Supplementary Budget, the sum of N2.5 billion was included for the renovation of the Vice President's residence in Abuja, which means that he already has a residence. Again, during the budget presentation, I heard the sum of N3 billion was allocated for the renovation of the Vice President's residence in Lagos. If we total all these sums, we would have budgeted the sum of N20.5 billion for the housing of the Vice President.. "

"..at this critical time when we are not just the world’s poverty capital, but more people are falling into poverty, with so many Nigerians not knowing where their next meal will come from. Our health facilities have collapsed, and unemployment is skyrocketing. I am convinced that 99.9% of Nigerians can only dream of living in the current residence of the Vice President. Several people employed in the universities are not being paid."

"Just to give an example, the salary of a professor in a Nigerian university is about N400,000, which without removing tax is about N5 million a year. What we have budgeted for the housing of the Vice President who is already luxuriously housed is, therefore, the annual salary of about 3000 professors! This is the finance needed to develop the much-needed human capital."

"The budget of N5 billion for student loans, which is yet to be disbursed is only a tiny percentage of the cost of the Vice President’s new home. We are projecting to use four times the amount for educating ALL Nigerian indigent students to house the Vice President, and we are being told there is nothing wrong with us. I am sure the major teaching hospitals in Nsukka, Lagos, Ibadan, and Zaria did not receive this much capital vote in the budget this year. We have had leaders that were exemplary in the past."

"Most Nigerians may not know that the popular 1004 flats in Lagos, was a land allocated for the building of a Presidential Mansion for the then Head of State, General Murtala Mohammed. He sternly turned down the offer and instructed that the land should be used to build blocks of flats for civil servants. That is the kind of sacrificial leadership worth emulating. Our leaders must therefore stop the recklessness and insensitivity to the plight of the masses."

"We need leaders who show compassion and are willing to sacrifice for common progress and development. Such compassionate and frugal leaders are critical in our journey to the New Nigeria." -PO

This is what you get when a Notorious narcotics drug trafficker, a certified certificate forger who became a guinea pig student of government college lagos used to test run the school four years before it was founded become president.

Sane Nigerians know that Tinubu who himself said "na statistics we go chop" and also recently turned COP28 Dubai summit into ‘owambe’ jamboree with 1,411 delegates got absolutely nothing to offer

Peter Obi is bundle of knowledge and wisdom put together and a touch of human sympathy, that’s makes him an excellent leader

Or can you explain why a man governed a state for complete eight years and didn’t have any atom of embezzlement, he even saved 75billion for Anambra people, has not received any salaries since he left office neither did he allocated any property to his name and in all this, he still donate to schools, hospitals etc

There has not been any politician in Nigeria as Peter Obi, dude is a special breed

Peter Obi, you will later rule this country and you will lay a solid foundation that will kickstart the new Nigeria like you did in Anambra

You’re loved sir, God bless you

Exactly.

Good point Mr Peter Obi, but based on your past behavior, you would do exactly the same thing if you were VP to Atiku in 2019 or was the sworn in president in 2023. Poverty increased in Anambra according to Prof Soludo, but you were kolobing billions for yourself through the governors office budget.

Anyway, continue being a good opposition, since PDP have decided to become useless.

You are a goat if you don’t know that you can’t win any election in Nigeria when you’re not ready to bribe.

Peter Obi’s old trick in his sleeves is to run to Judiciary after the elections… he forgot that the executive still controls the judiciary in Nigeria/ Africa.

Peter obi succeeded in wasting your time and my time

The 1st 4 years is for political settlements, compensations, sharing and planing for an outright victory in the next election
The last 4 years is for post retirement accumulation of wealth to remain relevant out of office.

Show me any of our leaders who did not ply this route from Obasanjo and atiku till date.
Even the last one invested in a different country with hope to retire there

Has nothing to serve as evidence of excellent governing prowess, just talks and more talks, like a commonly packaged politician.

Let's forget about who tweeted this.

Is budgeting 15 billion for just one person's residence okay?

With 15 billion, the government can build 500 low-cost residential quarters for all those people living in waterlogged houses I usually see in Ositapopcorn's IG contents.

That's 500 families benefiting from the government, rather than just one fellow!

But seriously, why are our leaders taking us Nigerians for a ride?

Is it because we're yet to start taking laws into our hands whilst demanding effective leadership?

Haba!

Well since people are totally tribalistic in Nigeria, they were afraid to vote in Obi because they thought he too will be tribalistic against them.
Me I can't talk. My tribe has never been in government. That is how I know that Nigerians are totally tribalistic.
