Kaduna State Governor and former Minister of Federal Capital Territory, Nasir el-Rufai, has come up with figures on how the Federal Government under former President Goodluck Jonathan expended yearly on independent anniversary, saying it was a lavish spending compared to what President Muhammadu Buhari budgeted this year. Applauding Buhari for considering the current economic weakness in making his decision.

El-Rufai said on his Facebook page that Jonathan spent N64 billion within 4 years to mark independence 4 years: 2011 – N13bn; 2012 -N15bn; 2013 – N14bn; 2014 – N22bn; compared to Buhari who spent just N70m in 2015.

“This is the APC/PMB (President Muhammadu Buhari) change we voted for”, el-Rufai wrote.
