    How come no one objects when the private sector fuel allowance is abused for the spouse car to drop kids at school? Good old days it was the shed bill. Now it's the corporate card.

    President. Why can't you oppose this if you still believe in good governance? Bring proposal to reduce this or stop this allowance.
