It’s an insult to say we shouldn’t spend N5.5bn on cars – Senator Abdullahi


Chief of the Senate, Yahaya Abdullahi has reacted to Nigerians anger about the truth that senate members of the ninth Meeting are to make use of about N5.5 billion to buy automobiles.

In keeping with Management Newspaper, the Senator mentioned individuals are simply being mischievous including that there isn’t any means you may give folks tasks within the Nationwide Meeting and then you definately anticipate them to return and work with their automobiles.

“Ministers are given official automobiles, not only one automotive. In some instances, the ministers that by no means run for any election get three to 4 automobiles. There are administrators who’ve greater than three or 4 jeeps at their disposal.

I used to be a Perm Sec, so I do know what obtains in authorities. So for somebody to return out and say, a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria shouldn’t be given an odd Jeep is mistaken.

I believe that’s an insult. Folks do not likely respect the position Senators play within the nationwide polity. This concern of automobiles is mischievous or full lack of appreciation of the work that senators do.

A number of of those senators are those making certain that they supply water for his or her communities as a result of the native governments in most states are not functioning,” he mentioned.

“It’s an insult to say {that a} senator of the Federal Republic can not experience a jeep in Nigeria. It’s an insult. I do know what ministers get; we can not even evaluate ourselves to ministers as a result of we’re larger than the minister(s).

So that you can say {that a} senator of the Federal Republic can not drive a jeep at this time — come on, that’s an insult. Go and inform the those who the work that we do is greater than the work of ministers,” he added.
