EIE Question: Can we join the suit and get as many other CSOs to join? We must stop this madness! – what’s your take on this?

What Akin Alabi said: I’ve heard that we’ll be receiving about 7.5m each as an allowance to settle down in Abuja. Firstly, I have not received any official communication as to whether that’s true. Secondly, when you say my take, is it whether 7m is too much or there should be none at all? Kindly clarify.
