Together, the goods sum up to about N30million which isn’t much, except for the young and petty businessmen who probably joined together loans and savings to bypass the corrupt infrastructure that makes it mandatory for people to bring in necessary food through Lagos.
NAN reported the glorious achievements as it would all other achivements of the government that was supposed to change things for Nigerians.
