A video of brand new SUVs is currently making rounds all over Nigerian social media. It is alleged that the vehicles would soon to be distributed to Senators and members of the house of representatives.
The video was first posted by a Twitter user named, MizCarzola1 and it has since sparked reactions from millions of Nigerians. In the video an unknown number of SUVs were parked in a large garage.
Nigerians have condemned the act, most of which have pointed out the ‘fact’ that the Academic Staff Union of Universities is still on strike and Nigeria economy just plunged into another recession. Currently on Nigerian Twitter, the hashtag ‘House of Reps’ is trending No1 and tweeps cannot stop talking about how they are disappointed in the news.
