See how Nigerians reacted on Twitter below.
@daniel: Sharing public funds as Ramadan gifts? Money he' s suppose to use to develop his constituency and empower the youths? This is wickedness. Why is EFCC turning a blind eye to this? Millions of people are starving, no jobs, unrest everywhere etc. but our leaders are busy chasing clout.
@asiwaju: Stockholm Syndrome. . . Give the money he suppose to provide social amenities to some selected individuals. The selected individuals who benefited directly from him who then go into midst of d poor masses to speak good about him. . . It' s a common practice in Africa politics.
Logically? yeah. . . Nigerian politicians are belligerents who have been holding the masses hostile for years. . . The same amount of money he shared can be used to renovate a lot of schools in his constituency, construct some borehole water. . . But he would prefer to share to some.
@ojlaw: This is so shameful. It shows that this people don' t work for the money they are paid. How else can one defend this insanity? Nigeria needs a drastic action to bring her back to reality. This surely cannot be allowed to continue.
@lawn: This is one of many reasons while Bandits exist, Northern Nigeria has highest rate of Poverty yet their ruling class keeps oppressing them, they weaponized poverty to have control over them. Now everybody is paying for it.
