N30m Aso Rock Rent: Babangida, Obasanjo, Others React

Following the recent breakdown of the 2016 budget, especially the allocations made to the Aso Rock villa, which shows that the Presidential Villa has a fixed rent price of N30.8 million, former Head of State, Ibrahim Babangida, has questioned the reason behind the decision, stressing that he built the Aso Rock during his tenure, wondering who the landlord is that the President will pay the said amount to.

“I built Aso Rock and I wonder who the current Landlord is. I read a certain N22M for the payment of Aso Rock rent. Rent to who, Me or GEJ? He said.


Babangida who also condemned the N1.7 billion budgeted for food by the President, stressed that politicians are well fed, maintaining that the Presidential Villa is not a place to feed politicians.

“I strongly believe our Politicians are well fed. The Aso Rock food budget should be reviewed. Aso Rock is not a place to feed Politicians”. Babangida bemoaned.


Also reacting to the brouhaha rocking the 2016 budget, former President Olusegun Obasanjo called on President Muhammadu Buhari to review the Aso Rock food budget.

“President Buhari should review the Aso Rock food budget. Anybody that wants to visit the Villa should eat before leaving their house”. Obasanjo said.


However, the former leaders of Nigeria were not the only people that aired their views on the budget, as other Nigerians on Social Media network, Twitter, expressed their opinions with some describing the 2016 budget as a ‘Budget of Corruption’ aimed at sustaining the flamboyant lifestyle of public officials.
