Amid recession, Reps take delivery of N3.6bn cars

14 November 2016, 20:00

Abuja - Despite the economic downturn in the country, about 360 exotic cars have been delivered to the House of Representatives to be shared by the lawmakers.

The cars are said to be worth a whopping N3.6 billion, reports Punch.

Already, the House has taken delivery of 28 units of the Peugeot 508.

The 28 were among the first batch of 50 cars supplied by the Kaduna-based Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited.

Lawmakers had a difficult time making up their minds on the choice of Peugeot 508 series as many had wanted the 2016 Toyota Camry, but eventually had to settle for the former.

The Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas, confirmed that members had started taking delivery of the vehicles.

The Senate has already taken delivery of its own cars for Senators.

The cost of the cars for the Senators is put at over N330m.
