Tinubu’s N90billion Hajj Subsidy Sparks Outrage, As Nigerians Demand Transparency


President Bola Tinubu has stirred up a hornet’s nest with his approval of a whooping N90billion subsidy for the 2024 Hajj pilgrimage, a move many have described as “unconstitutional” and “fiscally reckless”.

According to sources, the funds were sourced from the Service Wide Vote, a development that has raised eyebrows among Nigerians who are demanding to know how such a massive sum was allocated without due process.

Investigations revealed that the subsidy was not captured in the 2024 budget, neither was it approved by the National Assembly, sparking concerns about the president’s powers to unilaterally allocate public funds.

“This is a clear case of abuse of power and a slap on the face of democracy,” said a concerned citizen. “How can the president just wake up and approve such a huge sum without following due process? It’s unacceptable!”

As the controversy rages on, many are calling on the president to come clean on the subsidy and explain how it will benefit the average Nigerian.

“This is not about religion, it’s about accountability and transparency,” said another Nigerian. “If the president can just allocate N90billion like that, then we are in trouble as a nation.”
