Out right stupidity for the following reasons:
1. People are dying and in need of a means if livelihood. Instead setting up something of beneficial to the masses he is buying cars.
2. We are preaching use "made in Naija" products; why didn't the order for the cars from Innoson motors? This just shows we aren't together or practicing what we preach.
The government of the day should think twice about their actions, because "what goes around, comes around"
