look at how quickly it was approved for these looters to get the money yet they couldn't pay doctors? and lives were lost? What a joke Nigeria is! To say that am disappointed is an understatement!

Elections are in April. What is the point of getting new cars when no one knows who will be returning?

Secondly, why do they need individual cars? Can't LASG have a fleet of vehicles they can use when they go on official assignment?

These are legislators not essential services personnel...

Although i am not trying to justify the doctors' strike,this puts the confrontation in perspective.But of course,this sort of insouciance is par for the course.How else would you define self-aggrandizement?

This is terrible. I am surprised that fashola went ahead with this nonsense!!!. They can not even pay doctors a good salary and they are collecting 8.7m naira each.

They are not thinking of repairing the bad roads, providing good heatlhcare and they are talking about buying new cars. Very shamefull!!!!!! Infact disgusting

a revolution is the only solution to our problems. the day we stand up and shake up the government the day we get the treatment we want and need and the day these servants know that they are servants.

8.7 mil/ house member, that is about $60k, yet people are dying in Lagos because there is no cath lab for MI. No hemodialysis center for end stage renal patients. The Ayinke house that I visited last Nov. was a shame. pple died of minor causes. For every one of you that put a mile on those cars, God will increase the sorrow in your households by the miles. For every Lagosian that died of minor causes, God will bless you with multitudes of pain in your hearts
