Senate Denies Wanting To Spend N5.5bn On Cars.....

The Senate has faulted a suit seeking to stop it from utilising the sum of N5.5billion it has allegedly earmarked for the purchase of official vehicles for its Principal Officers.

Concerned Nigerians, in collaboration with some Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), like the the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), BudgIT and Enough is Enough (EiE), had instituted a suit at the Federal High Court, Ikoyi, Lagos, seeking to stop an alleged plan to by the 9th Senate to allegedly spend the sum of N5.5billion on vehicles for its principal officers.

However, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, described the court process as the handiwork work of detractors which is bound to fail.

Adeyeye, who spoke to reporters in Abuja, said that he was not aware of any such plan and wondered why some people decided to act on mere rumours being peddled in the media.

He said: “It (suit) is an exercise in futility; a complete exercise in futility. Even I as a Senator have not heard anything about that.

“So why will people be relying on rumour and newspaper reports? I wouldn’t know and in any case, if the Senate is going to spend that (amount); if it is budgeted for, then it means it is purely legal.”

“So why will the National Assembly be different? Why are they focusing on the National Assembly and not looking at the Executive, Judiciary arms of government? All of these people are entitled to official cars and do use official cars.

“Directors of agencies, even minor officials in agencies use official cars. So why will the National Assembly be different? Why should it be a problem that the National Assembly is entitled to cars, to use official cars?
Some of the vehicles they bought four years ago were no longer serviceable while others have probably been sold to their users,”.....


  1. God will not forgive them if they try this.

  2. Mmmmm I don't trust whatever comes out of the mouth of these politicians.

  3. God of heaven is that any way you can help me to scrap this thing they call upper house and lower house in Nigeria? This is a passionate plea.

God will not forgive this administration.... |Even the Czech Republic is offering Nigerians and other migrants Money to leave their country and the entire EU and never return....
