The former governor also advised governors to scrap the Office of the First Lady which he said gulps N2 billion monthly.

“It costs an average of N2 billion to run the office of the First Lady in every state in Nigeria. Multiply by 36. Nigeria can still function on its income if only we learn how to cut cost. We need to cut the cost of governance. No governor needs a house in Abuja; governors don’t live in Abuja,” Obi said.
