published on Saturday, 31 March 2012

It's like this is the latest rave in town now. Celebrating your birthday for a week or a month! First Daddy G.O.; Pastor Adeboye and now; Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

I've been hearing that the whole birthday celebration cost N200 milllion, but now Sahara Reporters are saying it costs N1 billion. On top birthday oh!

According to Sahara Reporters; Asiwaju Bola Tinubu celebrated yet another part of his 60th birthday celebration at the Teslim Balogun stadium in Lagos yesterday. As SaharaReporters earlier reported, the former governor's month-long event is costing Lagosians and several Action congress states N1 billion with local government areas forced to cough out N10 million each. The government of Lagos state puts in N150 million. Governors of Ogun, Ondo, Edo, Osun, Oyo and Edo states all made N50 million donation each. The rest of the money was donated by lawmakers and other politicians and contractors who benefit from the largesse dolled out during the former governor's reign in Lagos and beyond.

Na wa oh!
