N5.5bn yacht: Nigerians reaping consequences of their votes, says ex-presidential candidate

The candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the last presidential election, Prince Adewole Adebayo, has told Nigerians to bear the luxury and extravagant lifestyles of the current political leaders because they asked for it.

Adebayo was reacting to the reported plan by the government in the supplementary budget to spend N2.6 billion on utility vehicles for the presidential villa, another N6.2 billion for cars in the villa pool, N5 billion for new cars in the office of the first lady and N5.5 billion to procure a yacht for the president.

“I have said many times that votes have consequences. If you are voting emperors, you will have imperial budgets,” he said yesterday in an interview with Daily Trust.

He added that the problem with Nigeria has never been that of lack of money but that of leadership, adding that the people ought to accept that the way a politician campaigns is the way he intends to govern.

“Did the expensive grand campaign they did show that they were coming to govern people who can hardly feed once or twice a day? We have to make up our minds what kind of government we want to run because this is an imperial system that is not supportable by the economic base and not supportable by the average livelihood of the Nigerian people,” he said.

Nigerians are now earning dollars with premium domains, these domains can be acquired for $1500-$2000 profit margin can be as much as $15,000 to $20,000. Click here to learn how to earn dollars.
