      When did N25,853,337,717 allocated to ministry of science and technology become N1 bln,shame on you

    • DTaj

      Why are some of you so shameless? When did N26 billion become N1 billion? Are you people so filled with hate for Buhari that you continue to lie and lie, and lie?

      You have just demonstrated your daft thinking. Even a Ministry in a state will not have mere N1 billion allocation in a budget let alone the Federal Government!

      You have sold your soul to Lucifer!
