Popular Nigerian activist, Aisha Yesufu, has criticised President Bola Tinubu’s administration over the commissioning of the Vice President’s lodge.

According to her, the lodge demonstrates that the current administration is only good at rigging.

She wondered how N21 billion could be spent on the structure without a good landscaping design.

Aisha wrote: “The incompetence is so glaring, even to themselves. How do you accept this shabby lawn?

“The N21 billion was not enough to cover landscaping? How do you come out of your house and the front is looking like a kids’ abandoned football field? Rigging is the only thing they know how to focus on.”

On Friday, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu commissioned the Vice President’s lodge.

The president stated that providing a suitable residence for the Vice President symbolised respect for the office and the individual who occupies it.

Represented by Vice President Kashim Shettima, the president said the action was not merely a matter of convenience but a reflection of the present administration’s commitment to providing leaders with the tools and resources they need to effectively discharge their duties and serve the Nigerian people with integrity and dedication.

President Tinubu acknowledged that the VP’s residence project had faced numerous challenges over the years, including delays and abandonment by previous administrations.

He said, “Rather than dwell on past shortcomings, we have chosen to seize this opportunity to demonstrate our resolve to confront obstacles head-on and deliver on the promises made to the Nigerian people in line with our Renewed Hope Agenda, which has the completion of inherited projects as one of its cardinal objectives.”
