In a move that can be described as laudable, President Muhammadu Buhari has turned down an offer by the Federal Government to procure five new armoured Mercedes Benz S-600 (V222) cars for his personal use.

According to reports, the cars which would have incurred a total cost of about N400m were planned to be purchased by the State House.


A Presidency source told Punch that Buhari got to know of the plan when the Permanent Secretary, State House, Mr. Nebolisa Emodi, was briefing him of his ministry’s activities on Wednesday.

Shocked by this Buhari was said to have told Emodi that the purchase was unnecessary as it was a waste of scarce resources.

‘I don’t need any new cars. The ones I am using now are just fine,’ the source quoted the President as saying.

Buhari should come to Malaysia and deport all the never do well niger delta men who GEJ brought here and used to launder millions of dollars in Malaysia. students who have never passed a single course yet  Jonathan's administration kept wiring money into their accounts. $500 for accommodation, $500 for books and $700 for feeding yet nobody has ever asked for their final semester exams results. And to think that Buhari stupidly continues to send them money instead of ordering the Nigerian ambassador to Malaysia to arrange for their immediate deportation back to nigeria and fix them in both public and private universities. So much for the change.
