Wizkid, Banky W, Femi Kuti React As Nigerian National Assembly Gets N27bn For Renovation

Nigerian singers, Wizkid, Banky W, and Femi Kuti have reacted to the National government’s plan to renovate the senate building at the cost of 27billion naira.

The Federal Government recently reduced the budget for the renovation of the National Assembly complex to N27.7bn. The renovation of the complex at the initial cost of N37bn, which is to be executed by the Federal Capital Territory Administration has, however, raised eyebrows and received criticisms from Nigerians.
WizkidBanky W, and Femi Kuti all took to their Twitter page to slam the Nigerian government for making such a decision.  Banky stated that millions of Nigerians are struggling with being able to afford food and getting better healthcare and our leaders are preparing such a huge amount for a mere building. He wrote: “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”!”
Wizkid who had called President Buhari and Donald Trump a few days earlier had a few words to say. “Inhuman !!! country is a mess! Useless leaders!!”
Femi Kuti, on the other hand, stated that they did the same in 1999, allocating 25m for furniture allowances instead of making healthcare, education, electricity, roads their priority. “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.”
