SEASON OF EATING AND DRINKING!!! Sick Buhari Spends “A Million Dollars Of Tax Payers Money” To Host Series Of Expensive Lunch Meetings In UK

A pro-democracy and non-governmental organization, Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has described as wasteful and unwise, the series of lunch meetings between Governors and the ailing President, Muhammadu Buhari, in London, United kingdom UK.
Speaking specifically on the series of meetings in the UK, “at the behest of the medically vacationing President”, the rights group lamented that the Federal Government under the current administration, was actively encouraging medical tourism of top officials to the United Kingdom, at grave costs to the public treasury, by these stylish dinner/lunch meetings, at the behest of the Presidency.
On the decision of Buhari  to invite Governors in batches to visit him in London, over dinner/lunch, at huge public costs, HURIWA dismissed it as unwise and a disservice to the mantra of good governance and prudence, in the handling of public funds.
The Rights group, said it would have been cheaper for the President to address the media in the United Kingdom, and pass his message to Nigerians, since two or three major Nigerian publicly funded media houses, like the Nigerian Television Authority, News Agency of Nigeria, and the Voice of Nigeria, maintain offices in the United Kingdom, and those media houses were watched by significant percentage of the people of Nigeria.
“This ill-advised decision to organize London bazaars of free lunches for State Governors at public expense, will contribute adversely to the effects of economic recession in Nigeria, and will invariably drain the resources of these States whose Governors have embarked on these merry-go-round meetings, with their wives and close Aides, exactly 24 hours after they got the second trench of the Paris debt refunds from Nigerian State paid to them”‎, it added.

Who do you want as Nigeria's 2019 President???
