If indeed, someone proposed this “N400m Car Purchase” then President Muhammadu Buhari should announce the person’s name and have him sacked immediately!
Second, how this became a public story baffles me and should serve nothing other than propaganda at best; another attempt to tell Nigerians “We now have a no-wastage President.”
If this indeed occurred, then it would have been proposed by Staffers of the President/Presidency/FGN; so why is the Public being made to feel like “we had a say in it in the very first place?” Was the public informed when the proposal was submitted? Why then are we being informed when it was “supposedly rejected?”
This same no-wastage President just awarded N731bn payouts to States with no specific constitutional provision; so what’s all these publicity stunt sef?
Buhari should PLEASE do the work he was elected for; enough of these cheap appeal to sentiments; he’s 73 years old; he shouldn’t expect all these empty pampering from the public as a two-time C-in-C!
