“TO SPEND OVER N75 BILLION JUST FOR FUN IS INSENSITIVE,” NNPP LAMBASTS NASS

A chieftain of New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Olufemi Ajadi Oguntoyinbo, has fired back at the National Assembly over its plan to spend over N75 billion to procure 469 sports utility vehicles for themselves.

Daily Post reported that Oguntoyinbo made this known through a statement on Friday.

This is coming amid avalanche of criticisms across the Nation, even as the lawmakers have continued to struggle to justify why such huge luxurious spending is in the interest of Nigeria.

Reacting to public blacklashes earlier this week, the Chairman, Senate Committee on Services, Sunday Karimi who represents Kogi West Senatorial, told Nigerians to shut up. He provided many reasons the lawmakers would go ahead anyway to acquire the vehicles.

But in the statement, Oguntoyinbo said there is hunger in the land, adding that nothing would ever justify the National Assembly for this “insensitivity.”

“Many Nigerians are unable to feed themselves. Many are dying daily as a result of poverty. Many school children are dropping out of schools due to the current high inflation rate. It is sad that our senators are thinking and behaving as if they are not living in Nigeria. They are behaving as if the plights of Nigerians is not their problem. They are highly insensitive and immorally unconscious of the suffering of ordinary Nigerians.

“If they are sensitive, will they be talking of cars costing billions of Naira when the exchange rate of Naira to dollar is unarguably embarrassing. It is also sad that many of our national legislators are justifying the purchase of the SUVs at such an exorbitant rate on bad roads across the length and breadth of the country.

“That cannot be a justification; the bad roads signs that they are not doing well in government. We need to ask them, whose duty is it to provide good roads if not for the Federal Government, of which Senator is part of.

“The development has also shown that our senators and House of Representatives members hardly go back to their constituencies to feel their situation once they are elected.”

OUTRAGE AS WYDAD ELIMINATE ENYIMBA FROM AFRICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE

There has been sharp criticism across Nigeria following unimpressive display by Enyimba FC in African Football League Thursday night.

By implication, Enyimba’s 4-0 defeat by Wydad AC is not just the last nail in the coffin for the club, but also mean that there is no hope for all NPFL clubs.

Enyimba were beaten 1-0. Then any pipe dream was quickly dashed as Wydad raced into a three-goal lead in the first half, thanks to Ayoub El Amloud, Jamal Harkass and Yahia Attiyat Allah. There was no goal in second half so the hosts coasted home with 4-0 aggregate.

Reacting, the Chief Editor for Pulse Sports, Solace Chukwu, blame Enyimba footballers, the club management and just about every aspects of the team.

“It was to be expected, really,” Chukwu told Daily Post.

“For all the financial incentives laid out, Enyimba never rose to the challenge of presenting as a prestigious African side.

“Their administrative process continues to be as opaque and haphazard as ever, even under new management, and their recruitment in the off-season was underwhelming.

“That’s before even coming to the strength of their opponents, Wydad. I cannot see how anybody, whether within the club or outside of it, could have expected any better.”
