El-Rufai takes a swipe at GEJ for spending N64bn on Independence anniversaries
Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has taken a subtle swipe at former President Goodluck Jonathan, for spending a cumulative total of N64 billion on Independence Day anniversaries in his 5 years in office.
El-Rufai, however, hailed President Muhammadu Buhari for spending a meagre N70m compared to Jonathan, for this year’s Independence Day anniversary.
Writing on his Facebook page on Thursday, El-Rufai made the comparison between Jonathan and Buhari.
While Jonathan budgeted N10bn for the Independence anniversary in his first year as President, Buhari’s budget for the 55th anniversary pales in comparison.
El-Rufai wrote: “This is the APC/PMB change we voted for. Independence anniversary expenditure for the past five years: 2011 – N13bn; 2012 -N15bn; 2013 – N14bn; 2014 – N22bn; 2015 -N70m
