Good Nigerians? House of Reps Suspend Buying Exotic Cars

Maybe we should have only the House of Reps and scrap the senate and stop double spending...
The House of Reps has put on hold plans to purchase 360 exotic cars for its members.
Investigations showed that the funds to prosecute the purchase remained the main drawback for the House in taking a final decision on the controversial “utility” or “committee” cars.

“Funding for the cars will come from 2016 budget. As you are aware, the budget has not been passed. The passage of the budget will decide how much will be available for vehicles,” a House official said.

It was also learnt that the House had yet to decide on the brand of cars to buy for the lawmakers, who were split on whether to settle for Peugeot 508 saloon cars or the 2015 model of Toyota Camry.

Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited reportedly started advertising the 508 series to lawmakers since December 2015 in a bid to get them to patronise the local assembly plant.

The firm was said to have sent catalogues to the House to promote the features of the 508 series.

The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas, said “I think this car issue has generated too much hues and cries. The House has not bought any cars for now."
Hope they patronize something that is assembled in Nigeria at least when they decide to buy the cars.
