Our country is a very interesting place. See article before from Business day … All I can see is Greed is deadly disease.
Nigeria’s cabinet on Wednesday approved the purchase of three new presidential jets, a day after government said it would have to issue bonds to fund elections due next January. President Goodluck Jonathan won cabinet approval to buy two Falcon 7X aircraft from France’s Dassault Aviation (AVMD.PA) and one Gulfstream (GIA.A) G550 from the U.S. planemaker for the presidential fleet at a cost of $150 million.
“After consideration, council approved the purchase,” Information Minister Dora Akunyili told reporters after a cabinet meeting in the capital Abuja, adding that the amount was provided for in the 2010 budget.
My first thought after reading this is what is the use for 3 more planes. These planes are not revenue generating so we are more or less throwing $150 million out of window so our beloved president can enjoy when people in his own village are suffering. Wahala dey my people … We need to have a revolution like that village next to us did. Just my two cents …. What do you think?
