8 April 2020

A political activist and former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Timi Frank, has revealed that daily allowance of the Presidential Taskforce is N500,000.

Frank said officials of the federal government has turned the current Coronavirus pandemic to business.

Making the accusation on his official twitter account, @RealTimiFrank on Wednesday, the Bayelsa born political activist said each seating for every member of of the presidential taskforce committee is five hundred thousand.

He wondered how a government who has claimed that the country is broke could spend such amount daily.
