You Cannot Sell National Theatre, Reps Committee Tells FG by Gangster1ms: 7:14pm On Feb 13
Members of the House of Representatives Committee on Culture and Tourism have opposed the proposed plan by the Federal Government to sell the National Theatre in Iganmu, Lagos State. The lawmakers on Monday insisted that the national asset cannot be sold as it remains a national monument.

They made their position known during an interactive session between the committee and the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed. Chairman House Committee on Culture and Tourism, Representative Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama said selling the national edifice is not in the best interest of the citizens of the country.

“There are two issues that are not budget-related that we require you and the Minister to look into as a matter of urgency. I am sure that you received the resolution of the House about the proposed plan to sell the National Theatre as part of our National Assets. We cannot sell National Theater. As the representative of the people, we will stand for Nigerians to any level within the powers of the law to ensure that it is not sold. I want you to please, look at it,” Ogbeide-Ihama said.

This government has not delivered any of their promises, instead they want to sell everything we have. If they finish selling all the country's assest what will the future generation come and see?
Posterity will judge all of us that are taking Nigerians as fools.

What income is it generating for the country??

What measures are put in place in terms of maintenance??

Since we don't value anything in this country, they should sell it to those who understand the value..

Also, it is certain that these redundant money gulping beings talking about speaking for the nation conceive a selfish and ulterior motive, so they are speaking for themselves indirectly.

If the government will not take responsibility, it is better sold than leaving it decay. .

The national stadium in Lagos, Abuja have become Jungles. . Let govt contract these facilities out to maintainance firms, or sell them. That's the only way.
