Nigerians unsettled as viral video shows Yahaya Bello’s wife distributing N1m cash to domestic police and workers

The wife of the outgoing Kogi State Governor, Alhaja Rasheedat Bello, has distributed a cash sum of N1,000,000 each to all her domestic staff.

A video showing her distributing the money surfaced on social media on Thursday as the staff were seen singing praises of her while the police officers were saluting her with extraordinary passion.

Alhaji Yahaya Bello, her husband, Governor of Kogi State and also a presidential aspirant of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the upcoming 2023 elections has been in office since 2016 and will end his eight-year tenure later in 2024.

After the video of his wife went viral, many Nigerians took to their social media handles to express their pleasure and/or displeasure about the act of the First Lady.

In several reactions seen by Intel Region, some Nigerians described her as very generous and that other Nigerian leader should emulate her by distributing money in large sums to their domestic staff.

Some others were highly opposed to the action noting that her husband, Governor Yahaya Bello is still owing workers of the state salaries and the government should make it a priority before attending to any other matters.
