    1. You gat it all wrong. She quoted her source -Punch.
      Classical journalism. If she does not inform us, how shall we know what's happening in the government.
      How will the leaders be held accountable?
      Let the "Pederal quavanment go and arrest Funch"

    4. How dare you faceless anonymous?! She reported a news from lunch and you are telling her to stay away from such an important issue. If this money is used wisely do you think we will have all this hunger and pain in this country?! Is Jonathan still President ?! Just because you’re benefiting from this useless government you don’t care about the suffering of the millions of your country men!
      Jonathan didn’t perform and was voted out, if Buhari wants to be a hypocrite and perform worse and use ‘Jonathan did it too’ as his defense then he needs to go.
      What is he eating and why does he need to spend so much travelling??? All the travelling he did since 2015 hasn’t helped the life of Nigerians in any way

  8. This means your president and his family consumes 89,777 naira per meal. Mr Humility and simplicity.
    After that outlandish outlay on the clinic, one simple headache comes, they are end route to the USA for checkup.

  12. All these allocations are for the impending elections. They just disguised the lot so it doesn't look like it was used on their campaign and apparent rigging of the elections.

    Let them continue deceiving the masses and amassing wealth.
    Let's be kind to one another.

  14. Wehdone to Buhari. Sir, you need to visit UAE and see what they call good leader. I read his book where he said his first priority is his people, his second priority is his people and his third priority is his people. For our leader their first to last priority is themselves. May God take away the peace of all those troubling this nation.

  15. It is absolutely wrong for the country to provide food for the President, after providing health insurance, free accommodation and free rides. What are we paying him salary for ? If all he does is to be catered for while making ridiculous decision that has put the country in total abyss.

    Even the American Presidential system that we emulate doesn't include the President's feeding in their budget. He feeds himself from the salary he's being paid. Our inept law makers needs to address this.

  17. The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, needs to pay for his own food. They copy good things from foreign countries. Why not copy the good too. Mr. President, please pay for you and you your family’ Meals.
