    The spent Tax Payers money to visit someone that’s on vacation enjoying himself. His aides said he’s hale and hearty. Why will Saraki and Dogara waste out money to visit someone that’s very strong according to the FOOLISH/STUPID Shehu Garba

      Saraki but you tweeted that the Ex President Buhari was HALE AND HEARTY

      Then Shehu Garba said we should expect him ANY MOMENT FROM NOW.


      I cannot wait to clean these people out of government. NIGERIA NEEDS TO Breakdown! Each region SHOULD GOVERN ITSELF AS A SOVEREIGN STATE. That way it will be easy to discipline non-entities parading themselves as leaders.

    All these Visits. On who’s bill? And what are the purposes? I would assume not official ones as my understanding of a vacation is to be away from work?? No??

    Flight, feeding and accommodation as well as transportation in the UK for the legislative team. their aides and whoever else they have on their entourage at the taxpayer’s expense. All for a conversation, even if it is eye to eye, that a video conference can achieve at far lower costs. The environmentalists among us will be shaking heads at the needless carbon emissions for this visit. Maybe they’re going to fluff PMB’s pillow, take his temperature and deliver some kilishi.

    I wish I understood how Nigeria’s Freedom of Information law worked. I would be requesting expense reports ALL the time.

    Law, order and respect for due process is dead in Nigeria – we are collectively to blame.

    Mr Buhari,

    Presidency is not by force. You have always maintained your integrity, therefore if your health cannot withstand the rigours of being president, please resign.
