Popular producer, Don Jazzy has blasted the Nigerian National Assembly for spending on what he sees as “inessentials.”
He shared this as he reacted to a budget analysis by BudgIT.
The budget analysis revealed that 10.2 billion Naira is budgeted for Legislative Aides of the National Assembly, whereas, only 6.11 billion Naira is budgeted for all the 43 Federal universities in Nigeria.
Reacting, Don Jazzy wrote, “Thanks @BudgITng .There are 469 legislative seats in the National Assembly. Can someone make me understand why these legislators need many aides to work for them and why they should be on the govt’s payroll? How long should we continue spending on inessentials? #Voiceofthedon”
He continued, “That’s the reason why Nigerian universities are not even amongst Africa top 10. Our giant of Africa na mouth.”
