REVEALED: Senate’s running cost could have provided one million boreholes! | TheCable…
@NGRSenate @bukolasaraki @benmurraybruce @dino_melaye @SenMarafaKabir @SERAPNigeria In a country where 46 percent of its citizens are currently living below the poverty line of $1.90 or N693.5 per day, the running cost could have been used to solve some basic needs.

@NGRSenate @bukolasaraki @benmurraybruce @dino_melaye @SenMarafaKabir @SERAPNigeria HEALTH

Another area the senators’ allowances can have an alternative huge impact is the water sector. In 2018, @UNICEF reported that 69 million Nigerians did not have access to safe water. And 83 percent of schools in the country were said to have also lacked water supply.
@NGRSenate @bukolasaraki @benmurraybruce @dino_melaye @SenMarafaKabir @SERAPNigeria @IsaacFAdewole @nighealthwatch @cenbank @BudgITng @UNICEF @UNICEF_Nigeria @WaterAidNigeria @iamekweremadu Here’s where the succour could come: with N450,000 as fund for drilling a borehole in #Nigeria, N7.6 billion can afford the country 1,712,515 boreholes which will most likely go round for most communities.
