400 exotic cars: Reps move to block smuggled, refurbished vehicles

The House had resolved to acquire Toyota Camry 2020 model for members as official cars, otherwise called utility vehicles. The resolution was reached at an executive (closed-door) session held on February 5.The 400 saloon cars will be allocated to each of the 360 members and some top members of management staff, Chiefs of Staff to the (two) presiding officers as well as some of their special advisers and assistants.

Labour, NBA, others flay Buhari for backing National Assembly jumbo payAs such vehicles carry official registration numbers, it will be difficult for security agencies like the Nigeria Police Force and the Nigeria Customs Service to stop them.Consequently, the House and the National Assembly Management have formed a joint committee to oversee the acquisition, verification and distribution of the cars to the lawmakers.

The Chairman, Committee on House Services, Mr Wale Raji, could not be reached for comments on the matter. Calls to his telephone lines did not connect.Explaining the processes that lead to purchase of official cars, Dan-Zaria said, “The members decide the brands for themselves, using the money in their coffers. Whatever they decide is pushed to the management to appoint contractors who will bid (for the supply). When they bid, the highest bidder will be given. That is all. But nobody decides the brand and cost for them. It is their money and it is within their purview to do so. The management is only there to endorse their final decision; we cannot decide for them. It is not possible. We are working for them; we work under them; they are our bosses.”

When reminded of the faulty cars supplied to members of the 8th Assembly, the spokesman for the CNA dismissed the allegation that they were refurbished. According to him, the National Assembly has been facing difficulties since its budget was reduced from N150bn.
