Estimated N265m spent on trips

Excluding President Buhari, Ganduje and three others who were in the United Kingdom for personal reasons, Daily Trust reported that 53 persons were in London mainly to visit Tinubu.

The newspaper noted that with the increasing prices of tickets, at least each visitor would have spent between N4m and N5m on First Class or Business Class return tickets to the UK, citing findings from travel agents.

This put the money spent by those who visited Tinubu at N265m for the 53 politicians.

This is in addition to other expenses on hotel accommodation in London, feeding, among others. An average room in a hotel per night costs between 150 and 200 pounds (N90, 000 and N120, 000), the report added.
