EVEN AT 50?
WHEN WILL THIS CHANGE WE PRAY FOR COME , OH GOD!!!

Federal Government that says there is a financial crisis in the country and which proposed a supplementary budget to redefine expenditure priorities is now asking for a sum of 10 billion Naira to celebrate Nigeria’s 50th independence anniversary.
It is definitely not right to spend such a humongous amount to celebrate 50 years of failure!
The breakdown of the proposed expenditure is even more gauche.
N350 million has been earmarked for the National Unity Torch and Tour: N350 million just to carry a torch around the country? How ludicrous? They want to light up a country with a torch where there is no regular power supply.
N20 million has been earmarked for what is called Children’s Parliament- certainly this is money to be stolen by adults!
Another N20 million is meant for a party for 1,000 children. Their children!
Presidential banquet is to take all of N40 million. Yet we are not hosting the World Cup!

And on top of it all, Mrs. Patience Jonathan, who strangely now occupies an official position that is unknown to the Constitution, collects N50 million just to go on a visit to prisons, hospitals and elderly people’s homes.
N40 million for National Food Week! And N1.2 billion to place adverts in local and international media and another
N320 million for local publicity. N200 million is to be set aside for a football match to mark the golden jubilee.
Logistics is to take N320 million! To design the anniversary logo, N30 million has been earmarked.
What kind of logo is that? Ghana, next door, spent a sum of $200 million (about N300 million) to mark its 50th anniversary in 2007. The bulk of that cost was supplied by the private sector and more money was spent on legacy projects and the development of infrastructure.

The Ghanaians started planning their own event two years earlier; we are starting at the last minute.
In April, Senegal spent less but even that was controversial and in May, Cameroun spent even less to celebrate its golden jubilee independence anniversary.
Nigerian leaders are not looking at meaning and values.
For this same event, it has now been revealed that the Yar’Adua government budgeted just about N62 million ($423, 000).
But under Jonathan, the leaders are on a spending spree. Members of the National Assembly are asking openly and shamelessly that the capital vote in the budget should be shared out to them.
The Reps want about N48 million per quarter; the Senators want more.
Is it right as we have been told, that the Senate president goes home annually with about N2 billion?
Some committee chairmen earn as much as N312 million!
In a country where public infrastructure has failed, where the education system has collapsed, where the health sector is bad, this definitely can’t be right.
