The Nigeria Police Force is to spend a whopping N125, 629,606 million on its dogs in 2014.
amount is contained in the Police budget proposal submitted to the
National Assembly by President Goodluck Jonathan in Abuja last week.
The presentation was made on his behalf by his Minister for Finance,
Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.
The budget for the dogs is part of the N292,351,812,085 billion budgeted for the police for the year.
breakdown of the proposal shows that Construction of Force Headquarters
(FHQ) dog section barrack offices and kernels will cost N60,081,151m
while the Development of Police Veterinary dogs breeding centre, also at
the FHQ, Abuja will cost N29, 544,748m.
The police also expect to spend N277, 968,292 million on the procurement of arms and ammunition.
Whats your take on this? At least, on the bright side, the dogs will get good food to eat out of N125.6m while some citizens die of hunger.
