Nigerians have dragged the Labour Party governor who was reported to have spent ₦1 billion in three months on meals and welfare packages but released just N25million on public schools. Speaking on the trending development, Reno Omokri tackled critics calling out Bola Tinubu for ₦7 billion presidential yacht
The Abia state government headed by Alex Otti has come under heavy criticism following a recent revelation about its spending.
ONIFTV confirmed that Governor Otti spent a whopping sum of N927 million within three months on refreshments/meals, settlement of honorarium, allowances, and welfare packages for the eggheads.
In the report, the Otti-led government spent N223,389,889.84 on refreshment/meals, while N305,400,000.00 was spent on honorarium and sitting allowance for government officials within July and September 2023.
The government also claimed it spent N397,520,734.00 on welfare packages.
Omokri reacts as Alex Otti spends ₦1 billion on food.
Reacting angrily to the development, Reno Omokri, a former special assistant on social media to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, said those attacking Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu over ₦7 billion presidential yacht are hypocrites.
In a tweet shared on his X page, on Monday, November 20, Omokri wrote:
“Just look at how the same people that rightly criticised the ₦7 billion Presidential yacht are now justifying the ₦1 billion that the Labour Party government of Alex Otti spent on food in just three months. When asked to define hypocrisy in an exam, just write Obidients and Arise Peoples Party. I assure you you will get 100% for that question!
