House of Reps settle for N10 million Peugeot cars each

House of Reps query N3bn to build 40 houses for FG’s officials

The House of Representatives has decided to procure locally made cars for its members.
Chairman, House Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Abdulrazak Namdas who verified this yesterday at a media briefing, said plans to purchase 360 units of Peugeot 508 (2015 model) has been concluded.
The lawmakers reportedly settled for the vehicles after a presentation of samples from two local auto manufacturers.  “The cars will be purchased from a Nigerian company,” Namdas said.
Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited based in Kaduna will deliver the cars at N10 million each by the end of the second quarter.
“Peugeot is a local vehicle assembly plant. By patronising them, it is the decision of the House that we will be generating employment and promoting made in Nigeria products. That is the difference. We have resolved to buy the cars and in weeks from today, they will begin to arrive,” Namdas confirmed.
Payment for the cars to be used for oversight functions by the lawmakers, would be spread across two years.
