Abuja – There are indications that the Presidency has setup a committee to investigate reports that American reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, was paid $500,000 for a 45 second appearance on stage in Nigeria.

Sources in Aso Rock indicate that the president and lawmakers are concerned that if true, the exorbitant appearance-fee - in a nation where most citizens have to eke out a living on less than $1 a day - sets the wrong example.

In a leaked copy of a press-release on the matter, Chief Presidential spokesman, Reuben Abati, described the celebrity’s fee as outrageous, contemptuous, and aggravating.

He accused the show organisers of recklessness, insensitivity, lacking in professionalism, and of setting a bad example.

He called the decision to pay Miss Kardashian half a million dollars, unforgivably wasteful. 

The committee members are expected to fly to America on a fact finding mission.

Due to the moral implications of their missions’ findings, the Presidency has swiftly approved a budget of $5million dollars for the committee to enable them do a thorough job, so that such wastefulness would not occur in Nigerian in the future.

Ok, lets assume that half a million Dollars was paid for 45 minute whatever to Kanye s girl friend, why should 4 million be paid to investigate the matter ?? penny wise, pound foolish !!
