We, the undersigned Ethiopian taxpayers, have learned from media outlets that the Office of the President concluded a 400,000 birr per month rental contract for a residence of former President Girma Woldegiorgis on Friday September 20, 2013.
We understand the need to provide an honorable retirement for the former President, we found the rental house contract extravagant - both interms of the size of the house and its expenses - a shoking matter.
We do not believe it is economical to rent a house at an amount that can easily be used to build one in a country where the Federal Housing Agency is the largest land lord. We are also concerned that the deal could set a bad precedent with regard to government expenditure, in general, and retired officials' accommodation, in particular.
Therefore, we urge you to scrap the rental contract and apply sensible, economic alternative.
