Senate justifies purchase of luxury vehicles amidst economic hardship



The Senate on Tuesday justified the planned purchase of luxury vehicles for lawmakers amidst the harsh economic conditions facing Nigerians.


The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Services, Sunday Karimi, told journalists in Abuja that the leadership of the two chambers of the National Assembly decided to buy the luxury cars for lawmakers because they want vehicles that will not only be durable on Nigerian roads but also be able to maintain for the period of four years.


“It was based on a comparative analysis of the cost of technical issues and durability on Nigeria roads… We want something that we can maintain for another four years.


“And the issue of buying vehicles for the National Assembly, you know it is a recurring issue, it occurs every assembly, it will always come up,” Mr Karimi said.

There has been public outrage over the plan by the federal legislature to buy vehicles for its members despite the bad state of the nation’s economy.

The National Assembly comprises 469 members. While the Senate has 109 members, the House of Representatives has 360 members.
