The House of Representatives has stated that media claims circulating that each member of the House will receive N200 million SUVs are exaggerated.

The House said in a statement issued by its spokesperson, Akin Rotimi, on Sunday that the automobiles that will be provided to members are not for personal use.

Rotimi claimed that purchasing a functioning vehicle is not unique to the legislature, as executive appointees have also received vehicles.

“While many versions of this story carry varying exaggerations, we can confirm that the National Assembly bureaucracy is in the phased process of procuring and distributing operational vehicles to honourable members over the coming weeks and months,” he said.

He explained that members are to drop the cars after their tenure but can keep them if they are willing to pay.

“For the duration of the 10th Assembly (2023 – 2027), the vehicles shall remain the property of the National Assembly.
