The Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory has rejected plans by the Federal Capital Territory Administration to spend additional N9bn on the provision of infrastructure at the yet-to-be-completed residence of the Vice-President.

The committee, which visited the building site in Abuja on Thursday, refused to accept explanations from FCTA officials that N9bn more be sunk into the project.

Chairman of the Committee, Senator Smart Adeyemi, who led members of his committee to the site, said such a huge amount was unjustifiable in the face of abject poverty in the country.

The Executive Secretary of the Federal Capital Development Authority, Adamu Ismail, told the committee that the project was awarded in 2009 at a cost of N7bn.

He said the additional fund was needed to provide furniture, fencing, two protocol guest houses, a banquet hall and other security gadgets.
According to Ismail, the proposal is not included in the original plan of the building being handled by Julius Berger Nigeria Plc.
He said, “We have worked out the details and passed it to Bureau for Public Procurement for consideration. They have sent it back to us with their observation. We requested N9bn but now it came to about N6bn.”

However, Smart said, “The National Assembly is not going to appropriate additional N9bn for the project, especially at a period in this country when people cannot get a square meal.

“The N9bn is far more than the original cost of the project.
“Fourteen billion Naria to me is huge for the Vice-President’s house. If you are even talking of N10bn that would be understandable.

“The reality is that N14bn is indefensible and that is our submission. In Nigeria there are still many people with empty stomach. So we have to look at budgeting in relation to the needs of the people.”

However, Vice-Chairman of the Committee, Senator Domingo Obende, urged the officials to submit the details of the additional scope of work for which the fund was required to the committee for proper scrutiny.

The Vice-President’s residence had N2bn allocated to it in the FCTA’s 2013 budget.

I like this, just N9B for a whole vice president? he's being modest, if just part of a banquet is to cost N2.2B, why shouldn't a whole VICE PRESIDENT OF NAIJA house cost even N20B?

Even the OBAMAS & CLINTONS of this world dare not make such demands. . . 1 Billion Naira alone is 2much not to talk of 10 Billion, do u know how many millions Of DOLLARS that amounts to?
We don't have a democracy in Nigeria. We need to switch to traditional rulership so they can kill anybody they want to, have se.x with any woman they want and own everything just like their silly ancestors.
Illiterate politicians who can't write letter O with d bottom of a bottle. . .

This is absolutely ridiculous and not justifiable, what happened to Sambo's present abode? Why the need for any expansion and why the need for such huge amount at a time when the government is contemplating going aborrowing to finance ordinary project like laying of pipelines?

If this is not a misplaced priorities, I wonder what it is, and it will be the highest form of irresponsibility and callousness if any dime is approved by the authority concerned towards the completion of a building project that add no values to the life of the commoners.

Bedrooms, though he will sleep in a room @ any one time,living rooms-though he will spend half of the year in the office, out of the country and in 5 star hotels, library, though he wont read a book there and a mammoth residential building that he cannot maintain honestly.

As if them all get sense.
