Nigerians on the social media have blasted a man, Dud Malumfashi, for posting photos of the refreshment served when President Muhammadu Buhari hosted some dignitaries on Valentine’s Day, saying it was an attestation of the change being canvassed by the Federal Government.
The man posted a photo of the meeting and drew up a checklist of the drinks served while it lasted, which summed up to N2,700 per person, noting, “This is the change I voted for.”
Malumfashi posted the photo on Facebook and wrote,
Smooty Chapman = 120 NairaPeach = 150 NairaChi Exotic = 400 ×3 = 1200 NairaCoca-Cola 150×3 = 450 NairaBottled water 70×5 = 350
GRAND TOTAL = 2, 270 Naira. This is the cost of Refreshment spread across the table of VIP’s in today’s Nigeria.
Subjects, President of the most populous black country on the earth. Executive Governor of a Nigerian State, 1st Class Emir and 3rd most influential Emir after Sultan and the Emir of Kano.
THIS IS THE CHANGE I VOTED FOR.
Malumfashi’s opinion was not welcomed by Nigerians, as angry comments greeted the post.

@trackmediang: Before this your change, Bottled water was N50 and Coca-Cola was N100. So you see, your change made things worse. It’s just too costly, we can’t afford to pay for it again by 2019. Thanks
