Nigerians React To News That Senators Get New Cars
While the coronavirus ravages through Nigeria, reports have it that the Nigerian House of Representatives has begun taking stock of 400 newly acquired Toyota Camry 2020 models.
With the number of confirmed cases of the virus increasing by the day, many Nigerians have expressed their annoyance to the fact that the country has poorly equipped hospitals and the growing need for more ventilators.
But a member of the House of Representatives Akin Alabi said on Twitter that the cars were delivered months ago.
As of March 26th, the Nigerian Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reported 14 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in Nigeria: 1 in FCT, 1 in Bauchi and 12 in Lagos making it a total of 65 cases with 3 discharged and 1 death.

While the Reps are taking delivery of 400 brand new Toyota Camry 2020, worth $25,000+ each.
The govt is finding it difficult to purchase ventilators at $17,000 each.
Same govt is relying on
test kits from China.
The tragedy of a Nation.

In 2020, we have few standard hospitals.
In 2020, we have less than 10 standard universities.
In 2020, we fear SARS more than Robbers.
In 2020, we have poor electricity supply.
…but our leaders are riding Toyota Camry 2020.
By now you should know we don’t matter to these guys.

House of Reps bought 400 of pieces of Toyota Camry 2020 – $25k x 400.
How many ventilator do we have in Nigeria?
They took a large portion of what Jack Ma sent to us to fight coronavirus to Abuja for themselves.

In this trying period, those REPS are still taking delivery of Toyota Camry 2020 while we hardly have a good world class medical facility in Nigeria. And not to forget how bad corona virus is dealing with us. Any evil politician that’s tested POSITIVE will remain POSITIVE 😷tueeh
