If 81million is spend in cutting the grass, how much is going to cost to renovate the stadium?. If these people can critical think. A volunteer work can be done here. Put the information in the medua. We have alot of our youths walking the street doing nothing.. Provide a different kind of refreshments including drinks. It will be done in a mattervof time. If truly they want to save money. Many people will like to participate. Awon ole, barawo, they lack ideas.

Given that the dollar currently exchanges for over #500 to the naira that would have translated into a sharp increase in the cost of cutlasses and hoes by over 1000% and that is a possible factor that led to the “humongous grass cutting budget”

In a country where the economy is depressed, someone can still come out to talk about 81million to cut grasses when local solution can be sought to get the job done at reduced cost.
After all the good book is right, what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world…

Those who amassed all the millions yesterday, where are they today?

How much has that stadium generated since this year? Is it not a national shame that a national stadium is not functional and you need 81m to cut only the grass and not a total maintenance, for that statement alone that minister deserve to be sacked with immediate effect. NNPC does not generate revenue but the government spends billions monthly on salaries of workers, now this one again. Just watch how they will approve the money very fast and they will share it among themselves as usual. 9ija my country.

Please can someone tell our Minister that we have many youths without employment and if they can be employed to manage the stadium, their salaries in a year even, if it is One Hundred Million Naira will do the NATION Nigeria great.
With this the Country stand to benefit a lot and still reduce unemployment rate.
