Nigerian Senate! The Vehicle we Bought Cost N62.5m and not N298m


The Nigerian Senate has simply issued an announcement through Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi the Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Publicity to eliminate any confusion air on the clashing figures in the media about the cost of a few vehicles bought by the senate.

The announcement reads;

Our consideration has been attracted to the different false and evil reports in the media about the cost of the vehicle which the Senate was said to have purchased as a major aspect of its caravan however was later relinquished when it got appropriated by the Customs over contention encompassing import obligation installment.  

The right cost of the vehicle when it was transported in 2015 is $298,000 which at the overarching rate of N165 to a dollar is about N49, 170. The Senate paid N62.5m for the vehicle in November 2015. This is in opposition to the insidiousness by the individuals who chose to turn the $298,000 to N298m as the cost of the vehicle. For the evasion of uncertainty, the cost of that vehicle is N62.5m and not N298m. 

The Senate will welcome it if all reports identifying with the authoritative establishment, especially on this vehicle matter, are accounted for with exactness and all actualities put in appropriate viewpoint. We encourage columnists to maintain a strategic distance from sentimentality. The Senate is a mindful establishment and the individuals who trust that when they have issues to clarify before it, the following thing to do is to depend on deception, extortion, waste raking and mud-throwing, ought to realize that they are simply overheating the nation and undermining our popularity based foundation.

At long last, the Senate wish to repeat our aggregate duty to maintaining the control of law and to work for Nigerians, as per our constitution.
