Okay everyone, we’re going to hold hands in a circle and PRAY that the brand of HP desktop computers that cost one million Naira each in Gombe State, comes out and reveals itself, because…
This is according to TrakaNG, a project initiated by the pro-transparency group, BudgIT, to track the performance and execution of government budgets.
Why did Gombe State spend ₦ 100m on 100 computers?
So what had happened was, ₦ 100m was allocated in the 2019 budget to supply 100 computers in Filiya, Gombe State.
Who these computers are for and what they’ll be used to achieve hasn’t been revealed just yet, but this million Naira computer better be able to solve world hunger, or else…
What’s the official response to the 100m computers in Gombe State?
Before we get to that, how did none of the grown folk over at the Gombe State Assembly miss the fact a single computer desktop cost one million Naira?
Going by this, can you imagine how many multi-millionaires these Gombe representatives must be raising? Their children probably scam them of a ₦100,000 for each textbook, per semester in uni. Can you blame them?
So far, the spokesman to the governor – Ismaila Misilli, is yet to give a response to the inquiries. However, noting that Gombe State came fourth in a ranking of Nigeria’s State poverty indices, we expect an investigation at the very least and lost jobs at the max.
