Abuja – Nigerians have criticised the Senate for going ahead and purchasing exotic vehicles worth N330 million.
The purchasing of the vehicles came after many Nigerians, including President Muhammadu Buhari and former president Olusegun Obasanjo urged the National Assembly to shelve the plan to buy the cars.
While advising the Senate, Buhari in his first media chat had said: "I turned down a N400 million bill for cars for the presidency, because the vehicles I am using are good enough for the next 10 years."
But, according to Punch, the contractor in charge of delivering the vehicles, Lanre Shittu Motors, confirmed that it had delivered "a lot of vehicles" to the Senate.
