    Biko when is he going to do away with all the allowances politicians receive? N500K for breathing allowance. N200K for laundry. N350K for food allowance and other rubbish. All this in addition to their salary. You no dey fool anybody with this distraction. If you want to change something, start by calling for qualified politicians to step up and be game changers. Start by cutting off unnecessary ministries. Start by reducing the salaries and allowances politicians get.. make it fair and just! Mschewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

      My dear, it is not Buhari’s work to reduce the allowances “politicians receive”. Buhari can only do the one within his powers & jurisdiction (like the one he has done now).If you want politicians to reduce their allowances, start with the person representing you & ur constituency @ the house of assembly, house of reps & senate.

    We will see how his security works out. Anyone with a small brain knows you increase and reward your security people not take away their money.
