Why Every Nigerian Family Should Get N1 Billion As Feeding Allowance..!
BY Adeola Aderounmu
Goodluck Jonathan receives a monthly salary as the president of Nigeria. But it appears he needs subsidy (tax-payers money) to be able to feed his family.
I think this is both a shame and a scandal. He is planning to take away fuel subsidy but he is providing food subsidy for his family.
Why can’t Jonathan feed his family? Nigerians should be asking questions and not just follow-follow!
Why must the presidency claim almost N1 billion from tax-payers money for food?
If Jonathan needs N1 billion to feed his family why does the budget not include a similar amount for every Nigerian family? Don’t we all need food?
We, as Nigerians, are given N18 000 monthly as our basic minimum salary and we are expected to pay our rents and feed our families from this meagre sum.
But a man who sits in Abuja controlling all the monies in Nigeria had the guts to make a separate N1 billion Naira to feed his family. By the way, what are they eating?
Nigerians should tell Jonathan that they cannot pay his salary and feed him at the same time. He must learn to be content with his salary.
We are told that Nigeria borrowed money to supplement the 2011 Budget. What nonsense! Was part of the borrowed money also to feed the president and his family?
Nigerians have a moral obligation to end the reign of the PDP and start a new form of government operated from the regions and full of accountability. The time has never been so right..!
