Reps To Buy N6.1 Billion Cars For 360 Members

The House of Representatives is spending N6.1 billion on procurement of 360 Peugeot 508 cars for its members, it was learnt at the weekend.


At a unit price of about N17 million, the leadership of the House said no members would get more than a car, including the principal officers.

It debunked allegation of favoritism in the distribution of about 200 units that were supplied so far, saying members would take possession of their vehicles by the end of the year.

Another batch of supply is expected this week.
