Nigerians going through hardship, leaders sending money to themselves to enjoy holidays – Mr Macaroni shades Senate

August 10, 2023

Skit maker and activist, Debo Adedayo popularly known as Mr. Macaroni has lambasted the leadership of the National Assembly for “sending money to themselves to enjoy holidays” amid unbearable hardship faced by ordinary Nigerians.

Mr. Macaroni said this in a Wednesday tweet while reacting to a video showing Senate President Godswill Akpabio in what appeared a Freudian slip.

Akpabio announced to his colleagues at a plenary session that “to enable us enjoy our holidays, a token has been sent to our various accounts by the Clerk of the National Assembly”.

After a verbal protest by his colleagues, and in an apparent move to avert public outcry, Akpabio withdraw his statement, saying he had sent prayers instead.

Reacting, Mr. Macaroni lamented that the same Nigerian leaders asking followers to make sacrifices do not appear interested in inconveniencing themselves for the greater good.

The actor and comedian wrote, “The Senate President has sent very Expensive prayers out of the insufficient blessings of over 200 Million people to himself and his already blessed colleagues at the National Assembly.

“These are the Leaders that have asked struggling Nigerians to make sacrifices if they want things to work in the country.

“So while Nigerians are going through unbearable hardship, our leaders are sending money to themselves to enjoy holidays.

“Who are those that should be making sacrifices if not for our leaders? Do our leaders understand that leadership is about service, selfishness and sacrifice??

“Why do the poor people of Nigeria have to pay for the luxurious lifestyle of the leaders?? Why??? This isn’t leadership!!!”
