“At a time when most Nigerians are seriously struggling with being able to afford everything from FOOD to Healthcare, our National Assembly is going to spend N27 BILLION on “renovations”!,” Banky W wrote.
Wizkid on the other hand, tagged the federal government and the national assembly as ‘inhumane’.

Son of Fela Kuti, Femi Kuti, also reacting to the story, said this would not be the first time Nigerian leaders are placing themselves over the citizens.
“Same they did in 1999 (and forever), they fought for furniture allowances 25m each instead of making healthcare , education,electricity, roads their priority ,what they were voted to do.
“They’re cutting healthcare that’s in a BAD state that covid19 exposed . When they are sick they will run to Europe, UK and the USA and leave the masses to die in the horrible state they leave our hospitals,” he wrote.
