Lagos - Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that the N6 billion already spent on the new residence for the country’s deputy president is a "misapplication" of government funds.
According to Premium Times, Osinbajo said there was no need for a new residence for the vice president, as the current one was still in good shape and well maintained.
Osinbajo said the present administration would continue with the construction of the new residence, adding, however, that it would be put to other use once completed.
"There is no need for a new vice president’s house; it is a kind of waste; we are now in a situation where we cannot abandon it; it has to be completed and used for a different thing,’" Osinbajo was quoted as saying.
