fbpx We Bought 36 Cars, Not 108 – Senators | The Beat 99.9 FM

The Senate stated yesterday that the senators unanimously rejected the proposed loan to purchase vehicles, saying that all 109 of them were not interested. , Senator Ibrahim Gobir, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Senate Services, said the upper chamber never spent over N4 billion to purchase 108 cars for lawmakers. According to him, only 36 SUVs were bought at the cost of N36.5 million each. He said: “We had a close session and they agreed that we should give one car per state; we sat down and agreed on who among the three senators from each state needs the car most and that was what happened.” Gobir wondered why Nigerians were kicking against the purchase of the new cars, saying that the senators were entitled to official cars.
