Bola Tinubu turns 60.......1billion spent on celebration

Former governor of Lagos, Bola Tinubu had another leg of his  60th birthday celebration at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos yesterday.The former governor's month-long event is costing Lagosians and several Action congress states N1 billion with local government areas forced to cough out N10 million each. The government of Lagos state puts in N150 million. Governors of Ogun, Ondo, Edo, Osun, Oyo and Edo states all made N50 million donation each.The rest of the money was donated by lawmakers and other politicians and contractors who benefit from the largesse dolled out during the former governor's reign in Lagos and beyond.

This is as reported by Sahara reporters....

If this is not the height of waste, what else do you call it? The state Governors for example will take that money from the state account just to contribute for people to come and eat rice and cake while our healthcare and education systems are in shambles!
