The Federal Government of Nigeria earlier released a budget which stated that the renovation of the national assembly cost was N37bn. At the same time, that of the health and education sector was N44bn and N117bn, respectively.

"How can u slash Health and Education and Agriculture spending. Wetin renovation wan do. Smh. I weak. Can't even shout cos my voice dey fail me."

Great Nigerian singer Banky W went ahead to express his taught saying that people are battling with feeding in Nigeria amid coronavirus and the government are turning attention in the renovation of the National Assembly.

"At a time when most Nigerians are seriously struggling with being able to afford everything from FOOD to Healthcare, our National Assembly is going to spend N27 BILLION on "renovations"! @*$&$;@&@,@,! !*#&\??!!!" he tweeted.

The decision of the Federal Government regarding slashing of the budget and renovating the national assembly building has raised questions and criticism by many Nigerian.
