President Buhari’s 2017 Budget of Change was presented to the National Assembly some days ago.
Nigerians are in a complete shock as details of the budget continues to emerge.
For instance, the Nigeria Immigration Service budgeted for the construction of police stations.
Another agency, Council for Arts and Culture, budgeted for the construction of military barracks.
As if the misappropriated projects was not enough, the FG will spend a whopping N400m to buy cars for former leaders.
FG will be spending N280.099m for the purchase of vehicles for seven former Presidents and Heads of State.
N120.090m would be used to procure vehicles for four former Vice-Presidents and ex-Chiefs of General Staff.
The budget specifics did not specify the number of vehicles that would be bought for each of the former leaders.
Apart from the leaders, the office of the SGF will also buy N32m vehicles for offices and units in the office.
The government will also spend a total of N170m on the nation’s Independence Day and Democracy Day celebrations.
The office is also expected to spend N1.322bn on the procurement and installation of a security system in Ministries, Departments, and Agencies.
The number of MDAs that will benefit from the procurement is not disclosed in the details.
The office will also spend N104.586m on what it called support and maintenance of e-council document management.
Upgrading and maintenance of Council Chambers Conference System will gulp N55m.

N35m will be spent on one Xerox D125 photocopy machine.
Another N3.8m is budgeted for the purchase of what is called multi-functional photocopy machine.
That 2017 budget is a compendium of fraud, nonsense, foolishness and everything ugly rolled into one.
