The Federal Government plans to spend N94.5 million on bullet-proof tyres for President Muhammadu Buhari and others this year, State House Permanent Secretary Jalal A. Arabi has said. Wow, in the midst of the economic turbulence Nigerians are facing?!
Canteen and kitchen equipment will cost N100.8 million.
These are part of the breakdown of the State House budget presented by Arabi to the Senate Committee on Federal Character and Inter-Governmental Affairs.
The number of treated (bulletproof) tyres that will be bought with N94.5 million was, however, not specified.
Arabi told the committee that N94.5 million (50% of the actual sought for in 2016) is proposed for this year.
