Governor Sanwo-olu’s approval of N3 billion for perfumes and N7.5 million for rechargeable fans elicits reactions

According to Vanguard, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, has drawn a lot of flak for choosing to spend N3 billion on rechargeable fans for his deputy, Obafemi Hamzat, and N7.5 million on replacing the liquid fragrance in his office.

In addition, Nigerians have shared their thoughts on social media on the contracts that the Public Procurement Agency (PPA) of Lagos State granted in the second and third quarters of 2023. The approval of more than N440 million for a new Lexus LX 600 Bulletproof Sport Utility Vehicle to be used in the Chief of Staff’s office is one of these contracs

The Chief of Staff’s office also received N18.5 million for the supply and distribution of 2,000 Noiler chickens to local government areas and wards in the state. Twitter shared information indicating that the government allocated N152 million to restore water supply at the Iduganran palace, the official residence of the Oba of Lagos. The document also revealed plans to set aside N581 million for the renovation of Saint Andrews Anglican Church in the Oke-Popo area. Similarly, records indicated that the office of the deputy governor was granted N30 million for monthly outreach programs for the less privileged citizens, led by the deputy governor’s wife, along with an additional N30 million for an empowerment program.

Many people who saw this were amazed as they reacted vigorously to the post, while others gave their thoughts and opinions on what he said.
