It is not the job of the NSA to procure vehicles or to replace bombed vehicles of present or former presidents or heads of state

What our past presidents and heads of states are entitled to are provided by the FG (covered in our national budgets and within the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) and not through the NSA so it is impossible and in reality very unfortunate to read from otherwise intelligent Nigerians trying to justify the 2 vehicles PMB received from the NSA.

It is not the job of the NSA to procure vehicles or to replace bombed vehicles of present or former presidents or heads of state!!!

So, receiving vehicles from the NSA is as bad as receiving cash for spiritual prayers and TV adverts from the same NSA as far as the issue of mismanagement of the arms funds is concerned!!!

We must learn to be consistent, objective and clear if we claim to be patriots and believers in project Nigeria!
