NIGERIA PAYS N400.1M AS RENT FOR ASO ROCK VILLA

Written by on November 25, 2020

BY 2021, TOTAL MONEY PAID AS RENT FOR ASO ROCK RESIDENTIAL QUARTERS WILL EXCEED N400 MILLION AS QUESTIONS REMAIN ON WHO THE MYSTERY LANDLORD IS.

THE 2021 STATE HOUSE BUDGET, AS IN PREVIOUS YEARS, HAS EARMARKED N66.6 MILLION AS PAYMENT FOR ‘RESIDENTIAL RENT’, A PROVISION THAT MANY NIGERIANS HAVE DESCRIBED AS ‘SUSPICIOUS’ WITH QUESTIONS ON IF, INDEED, ASO ROCK IS ON RENT.

IN 2016, FOLLOWING AN OUTCRY ON THE SAME ITEM IN THE BUDGET, FORMER HEAD OF STATE, AND ALSO THE FIRST OCCUPANT OF ASO ROCK, IBRAHIM BABANGIDA, LENT HIS VOICE TO CRITICISM OF THE RESIDENTIAL RENT PROVISION, ASKING NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT TO EXPLAIN WHO EXACTLY ARE THE LANDLORDS.
