How much did it cost you to open a Facebook account? Maybe Internet access and a few minutes? A Director General of National Sports Commission in Nigeria, Patrick Ekeji is currently under investigation for spending N1.2 Million to open a Facebook account, approximately 670, 000/- Kenyan money.
The director has been reportedly summoned by the House of Representatives for misappropriation of funds and abuse of office and amongst the things he is supposed to explain is the N1.2m allegedly used to open a Facebook account. The money was part of a N3.7 billion advanced to the commission for the 10th All Africa Games in 2011.
N 1.2 Million to open a Facebook account? Pray for Nigeria.
