Following the development, some netizens took to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to express their views on the matter.

Is Niger Republic 🇳🇪, Nigeria’s 37th state?

David Hundeyin just leaked a Letter showing clearly how Buhari approved N1.4 billion to buy vehicles for the government of Niger Republic yet he has refused to fund ASUU. This is the kind of government someone said that he wants to continue its legacy. God please n

Railway to Maradi makes sense now! David Hundeyin just leaked a Letter showing clearly how Buhari approved N1.4 billion to buy vehicles for the government of Niger Republic. Buhari wastes scarce resources on his Nigerien cousins, but he won’t fund ASUU?
WHO IS MUHAMMADU BUHARI??

This is another reason that shows that the National Assembly is Nigeria's biggest enemy.
How could the president be spending our scarce resources on Niger Republic, and the NA is sitting ducks?
No check at all, just shout Mr Speaker, pound gavel, and go on holidays. https://t.co/7hVPfNIpRc
