The wife of the Nigerian president, Aisha Buhari took to the podium to condemn the Nigerian government for spending $16 million on Mosquito nets. She echoed her thoughts about the subject while meeting with women at the State House, Abuja on Saturday.
Mrs Buhari expressed that the Nigerian Government did not make the smartest decision in disbursing a huge amount of the Nigerian Social Investment Programme fund. She thought the money could have been spent wisely on other projects.
“I have heard about mosquito nets, Nigeria paid its counterpart fund, $16m. I asked them to give my own share of the net to send it to my village people. I didn’t get it.
“They have spent, $16m on buying mosquito nets, I did not get it, and maybe some people have gotten it. But I feel that that’s my personal opinion, $16m is enough to fumigate mosquitoes in Nigeria. That’s my opinion,” she said.
