New cars for WEF Africa?

Someone tweeted that this is the new Mercedez Benz car bought for the World Economic Forum on Africa starting tomorrow in Abuja 

I'm not saying that the government bought these cars, I'm just asking. Found it on someone's twitter. But knowing our people I won't put this past them. Or maybe it's necessary?

Its very possible,just like the new BMW cars that were purchased dduring the Common Wealth Heads of Government,meeting CHOGM during Obasanjo's administration.
Nigeria is not a poor country,what fobu expect Lindiway? Even our president recently said that we're not poor.
Hope the glasses are tinted so they don't get to see the poor people on the streets.

Unknown said...

Linda it's a form of PR and it isn't too bad. Remember it's WORLD ECONOMIC forum and Nigeria was recently ranked the biggest economy in Africa. We need to put up a comfortable outlook for the world to key in into the viability of the Nigerian economy, to attract more world class investors. In marketing, it's called packaging.

They definitely bought new cars. I was at the hilton today and was behind a brand new landcruiser with this same plate number, and it still had the plastic bags on the seats. So there you go.

What's the point of all this luxury when hotels going to lose power, water will shut off at some point during the day, and the poor and beggarly will be walking the streets up and down? Who are they trying to impress, blind people? Won't these people land at the airport that will probably lose power, wont they travel on the crappy roads, wont they see the shanty towns and smell the putrid odours that emanate from some of these filthy hovels? All this money spending and not going where it should go. Continue to impress and pretend for outsiders when universities look like bombed out buildings and hospitals are killing more than they are keeping alive..mtchewww

Oga! Which car dem go use ferry these world pepo wey we invite come? Truth be told, all our ministry cars including those owned by the police force are badly maintained not because there is no provision for maintenance but because our directors, perm secs have chopped the money untop say "Nigeria can afford to buy another". Until this stops, there will always be a genuine need for new vehicles

Yes Linda new cars were bought. When I passed Eagle Square I saw a whole lot of cars and buses parked there with the plate number of WEFA so yes they bought not just one but several cars.

Its very true, they had the mercedes cars brand new @ d eagle square in abuja. And I personally saw over 100 brand new toyotas comprising 2014 toyota camry, 2014 toyota prado and its 2014 lexus counterpart. Would have taken pictures but there were a lot of mobile policemen. They were at the old parade ground sports complex in abuja where I have my CDS! My question is; what happens to these cars after the summit!?

Do you have talent in dance, music, drama or any field in the performing arts?

Yes I saw these mercedes on the highway dat leads to the airport, I saw more than 30, but my major concern is wat will happen to these cars afta the wefa???

Naijarian said...

Linda, from COJA, CHOGM to First Ladies Peace Mission, the practice has always been to bring in new cars for the use of the guests... The cars are then returned to the car dealers who then sell them off at cheaper rate. With all the pepper wey dey rest for your side, you fit acquire one of them almost new car sef..

@Funminista
You started the curse off first by stating that they would all be bombed. My statement was returning the consequence of that irresponsible and thoughtless statement to you. Its called cause and effect. Continue your verbal diahorrea. It doesnt change that you have set something into motion by your thoughts, written words and utterances. Your mouth was created to comfort and bless. Not curse. You wrote down your evil wishes. You may continue to rant and rage and reply me ad nauseum, it will not change what is about to happen unless you repent, cancel your curse in PUBLIC on this same Linda blog and hereafter think carefully before writing or saying things.
