Veteran Nigerian singer, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charly Boy, has reacted to reports about the multi-million naira LX 600 SUV allegedly purchased by Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.
Wike’s choice of automobile with the plate number ‘FCT – 01’ for his first day at work on Tuesday got many talking.
A search on the official Lexus website puts the price of this SUV starting from $100,115.
He tweeted: “A minister is driving a 300 million naira vehicle in a country with over 20 million out of school children, a minister is driving a 300 million naira vehicle in a country where the minimum wage is 30,000 naira. Please folks stop engaging the defenders of this crime against humanity. We shall and must RECOVER the Stolen Mandate to change the NARRATIVE.”
