President Muhammadu Buhari and the new SGF, Boss Mustapha

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Gida Mustapha, has disclosed that the Federal Government paid N40 million to former presidents and others to allow them purchase vehicles of their choice.

He made this known while speaking at the 2018 budget defence session before members of the Senate committee on Federal Character and Inter-Governmental Affairs, on Thursday.

Mustapha said: “They are entitled to that by law. We took a decision that instead of buying these vehicles, we should give them the money and let them buy vehicles of their choices.

“One of them qualified for it this year and that was why the N40 million was paid. The remaining, hopefully will qualify for it next year or thereabout.”
