Paul Okoye Reacts To Federal Government Approving N27.7Billion For Renovation Of The National Assembly Complex
It’s no longer news that the Federal Government has approved a whopping N27.7bn for the renovation of the National Assembly complex. Even though the initial budget was N37bn, it was reduced due to the drop in the price of crude oil and a fall in the projected government revenue.
Shockingly, the the Basic Health Care Provision Fund which is meant to cater for all the primary healthcare centres across the 774 local government areas in the country, was significantly reduced by N44.4bn to N25.5bn. This clearly is a decrease of more than 42.5 per cent.
While reacting to this, Paul Okoye, in a tweet suggested that the Federal Government is taking Nigerians for granted. He wrote:
“27billy to renovate …… they know we can’t do anything,… it is called “see finish” …….. Naija government don see us finish aswear ….. #fuckedup 🚶🏿♂️🚶🏿♂️🚶🏿♂️ even with dis my tweet sef , some people go still come abuse me 🚶🏿♂️🚶🏿♂️ we all are #fuckedup .”
The Nigerian singer’s followers reacted by showing support for the “Audio Money” hitmaker even though there were those who criticized him and other celebrities.

@Adimitchel: “You celebs are comfortable with what is happening in Nigeria. It’s so unfortunate!! You guys don’t want to lead the masses for a peaceful protest. All of us have failed in this country!!”
