Mercedes-Maybach S600 in base-line configuration costs around $258,000 or N51,6 million, while the price for the new Mercedes-Benz S 350 is only $135,000 or N27 million.

Upgraded versions of these cars for world leaders cost tens of thousands dollars more than their base-line configuration, but include the capability to withstand small arms fire and explosive devices, and a self-sealing fuel tank.

There have been huge scandals related to expensive car purchases under Jonathan’s rule.

Members of a committee handpicked by President Goodluck Jonathan to investigate the purchase of two BMW armored cars at a whopping cost of $1.6 million were intensely pressured by the former president to deliver a watery recommendation that exonerates Aviation Minister, Stella Oduah.

The committee set up to probe the N255m bulletproof car scandal in the aviation ministry has indicted the Minister, Ms. Stella Oduah.
