Reps Take Delivery Of Exotic Cars, Begin Distribution by RuudVanNisteroy: 3:32am On Mar 27
The House of Representatives has started taking delivery of the Toyota Camry 2020 model cars acquired for members as official cars, otherwise called utility vehicles, The PUNCH has reliably learnt.

Our correspondent sighted some of the cars at different parking lots within the National Assembly Complex, on Thursday.

The legislators had at an executive (closed-door) session on February 5, 2020, resolved to purchase 400 units of the exotic car.

The House has, however, kept sealed lips on the cost of each unit as the contract for the supply it was learnt was not awarded to accredited Toyota dealers.

Our correspondent observed that the House procured the V6 Limited Edition variant of the car.

Chairman of the Committee on House Services, Mr. Wale Raji, who confirmed delivery of the cars declined to respond to further enquiries.

The cars, which belong to the National Assembly, are usually auctioned to the lawmakers after four years.

A check on the website of Toyota revealed that each of the vehicles – depending on the variant, has a price tag of between US$25,000 to US $35,000, excluding the cost of shipping and custom duties, which is about 100 per cent of the actual cost of each unit.

For instance, those with higher specification, which most often than not is the preferred choice of lawmakers, could cost tax payers a tidy sum. Vehicles in this range are: XLE at $29,455, XLE V6 at $34,580, XSE at $30,005 and XSE V6 at $35,130.

Already, about 14 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado sports utility vehicles have already been handed out to presiding as well as other principal officers and chairmen of select House committees.



Some lawmakers who were contacted on Thursday said they had yet to receive vehicles delivered in “the first batch.”

Giving a breakdown of how the vehicles are shared, a member of the House, who spoke on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution, said, the 400 saloon cars would be allocated to each of the 360 members and some top management staff, Chiefs of Staff to the (two) presiding officers as well as some of their special advisers and assistants.

The lawmaker explained that new members who did not get committee appointments would benefit from the first batch.

The source said, “I was told 100 have already arrived and they are sharing them to new members who are not chairmen and deputy chairmen (of committees). The next batch will be for returning (ranking) members who are neither chairmen nor deputy chairmen. The last batch will go to ranking member with appointments.”

The Committee on House Services and the National Assembly Management, led by the Clerk to the National Assembly, Mohammed Sani-Omolori, had constituted a joint committee to oversee the acquisition, verification and distribution to the lawmakers.

The Committee on House Services, which also exists in the Senate, serves as the protocol and welfare department.

The joint committee was set up as some members had alleged that the National Assembly had become a “dumping ground” for smuggled and refurbished automobiles.

These are men who have at least 4 to 8 cars acquired in their long political histories o. And that is putting it mildly. Cos every 4 years these cars are sold off to them at ridiculous prices and new ones are bought for them.
Now ask yourself are they pdp or apc? No, they are politicians and they are all the same irrespective of party. If you challenge them they will say its constitutional but ask yourself again, who made these laws or allowances that allows them all these benefits, is it the common man? Of course not. All is done to constitutionally enrich themselves and some here will be abusing each other over these men. That's why I find it hard to believe that a youth in his right senses will support any party or politician unless of course there is some gain attached to it...like my friend mannabbqgrills

After they will say we should pray for them..

These bunch of Looters are always celebrated whenever they visit their various religious houses and their Pastors/Imam won't get to tell them to change from their evil ways... They rather ask them for tithe and offerings...



This country is a Shithole indeed

In the face of near-recession and global lockdown? No single proactive measures, nothing for the citizens! I have come across Mr. Speaker a couple of times at the MM int'l airport returning from overseas trip with over eighty aides. That's too wasteful.
