Aisha Buhari, the president’s wife, hosted a lavish party for “Social Media Change Agents” on Tuesday, at a time her husband has been telling Nigerians to tighten their belts because falling oil prices means there is little left in the kitty.
The fancy title “Social Media Change Agents” really meant bloggers for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The party was held to thank them for their contributions in sweeping Buhari into power in the March (s)election.
A source at the event indicated that the APC bloggers received 10m naira ($50,200) each from the president’s wife.
Watch the event:
The guests were entertained by singers and performers. The wife of Kayode Fayemi, the Minister for Solid Minerals also informed the bloggers that there was more in store for them from the president’s budget.
