FG To Spend N500m On Jonathan’s Inauguration

Back at ya!!!
A whopping N500 million has been earmarked by Federal Government to mark the inauguration ceremony of President Goodluck Jonathan as the president of Nigeria for the next four years later this month.
Also, former president of Brazil, Mr Lula Da Silva, has been slated to deliver an inaugural lecture as a mark of honour for of the president with about 35 presidents and heads of governments across the world having signified their intention to be part of the inauguration ceremony.

The lecture, with the theme: “Consolidating Democracy For National Transformation,” is billed to come up on the May 27 in Abuja. In the same vein, an inaugural football match between the Kaduna United Football team of Kaduna and the Eyimba Football Club of Aba is slated for the Abuja Stadium on May 28. - Tribune

Ah my Nigeria. 500m for inauguration. I bet there is a panel of whomever set up to plan this and they are making some cool millions (not including the 500m). We seem to have the funds to celebrate lavish independence day celebrations and inaugurations but we can't fund the essential projects. Hmmmm

It would be a big shame if this turns out to be the same "Government as usual".

This news and his attendance of the inauguration of the 25-year running Ugandan President have really gotten my eye-brows up.

I casted a vote for my conscience and I voted ACN, in as much as I knew they stood no chance.

I'm so glad I did.

However I don't give up easily on people so I'm still hoping and praying for the best from GEJ and this Government.

God bless Nigeria.

so this kind of money is available and the government is only giving $5million each to the families of those NYSC victims.
Again, too sad.

It would be awesome to put that 500million is context before we bury the president. How much did it cost for the other presidents inaugurations? What is the money being spent on etc. Then we can judge the matter.

I don't know what to think of him yet but I like that there's a new face. I'm just wondering why he hasn't spoken out or said anything about the youth corpers that were innocently killed. Where is JUSTICE?
