The federal government of Nigeria wants to spend over two billion Naira for a 150-seater banquet hall. Not a 5, 000-seater hall o, just 150 seats! Does that make sense to you guys?
Meanwhile, there’s an existing banquet hall in the Villa o. This one is just to waste money and share the remaining.
Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Bala Muhammed, said the proposed hall, which will be constructed by Julius Berger, will have walk ways, security post, hall conveniences, technical room and press briefing room. For N2.2bn?
Isn’t there a way civil societies in Nigeria can stop all these unnecessarily spending by taking the federal government to court? Isn’t there a way, we as citizens, can check our government?
