In accordance with him, Nigeria’s financial woes are exacerbated by the extravagant life of presidency officers, that are sustained on the expense of the nation’s wealth.

“Let’s come clear and straight with Nigerians. Nigeria could be very poor and broke however the life-style of presidency and authorities officers doesn’t present it, particularly with the obscene flamboyance in public show,” Soludo mentioned.

On this case, I agree with reverend father Mbaka, who mentioned elected governors must also earn minimal wage. I agree that we must be paid that in order that we will really feel that as properly.

“In Anambra, I’ve not acquired a kobo as wage since I assumed workplace. I’ve donated my wage to the state.
