While the government and the NLC are at loggerheads on the minimum wage being settled at N30,000. It is no wonder some Nigerians are calculating the benefits of being detained since their feeding alone will be in millions in just a month.
A lot of people will be wondering what ingredients are used to prepare his meal that has made his feeding for a month worth a small piece of land. Some others are working the math and have arrived at the minimum wage for over 110 people equals feeding for one detainee.
While some are of the opinion that it is all a ruse to create distractions from other matters, some have this to say via tweeps:
‘We Spend N3.5 Million Monthly To Feed El-Zakzaky’ – Lai Mohammed
If this is anything to go by, it means the Federal Government spends N116,000 daily in feeding El-Zakzaky.
Yet the average nigerian worker feeds his family monthly with N18,000…. https://t.co/txrADpKo9y

According to Lai Mohammed, The Federal Government spends #3.5 million naira monthly to feed El-Zakzaky.
#3.5m/30 days = #116,670 per day
#116,670/day = #39,000 per square if he’s fed three times a day.
Current minimum wage = #18,000

According to Lai Mohammed theory, if it takes 3.5m naira To feed El zakzaky per month, How much would it cost to feed President Buhari in the same period of time?

“It costs the Nigerian government N3.5m per month to feed ElZakzaky.”
– Lai Mohammed.
A child died yesterday because her parents didn’t have 3,000 naira for medical aid. But this government can afford approximately 116k a day to feed a wrongfully detained man.

You guys should be more worried that Elzakzaky is eating food worth N3.5m per Month as Lai Mohammed has just revealed.
I now understand why Buhari refuse to release him. A man who can eat that much is a threat to a country where 87 million are poor. Gluttony is a crime.Sai Baba
