Nigerian actor and comedian Oluwaseyitan Aletile, professionally known as Seyi Law, has berated President Bola Tinubu’s administration over the proposed procurement of a N5 billion presidential yacht.
According to information, part of the expenditures proposed in the 2023 supplementary budget the President submitted to the National Assembly for approval includes a proposal to spend N5.095 billion on a presidential yacht.
Reacting via his X handle, Seyi Law said the proposal was “insensitive to the plight of Nigerians.”
He called on the president to reverse the decision.
The comedian wrote: “I am not in support of the procurement of the presidential yacht. It is quite insensitive to the plight of Nigerians at this moment to even rationalise it. I call on the president, #officialABAT, to once again prove to Nigerians that he listens. Thank you, your Excellency.”
