Reacting to a video where one of the dignitaries threw money into the air and people rushed to pick it, thereby raising dust, Journalist, David Hundeyin @DavidHundeyin said in as much they want to give the people the money, throwing it up is a bad idea. According to him, those people who rushed to pick it might get injured or inhale dust.
He tweet: “The money would be better spent giving these people an all-weather road which would improve their ability to trade and reduce their exposure to respiratory ailments due to constantly inhaling dust.
