Lagos Assembly To Investigate Ambode, Nigeria Twitter Users React

The Lagos State House Assembly has put together a committee to look into the purchase of 820 buses by the government of former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The house said that it was determined to investigate the purchase of the 820 buses out of the 5,000 buses proposed by Ambode for mass transit, despite the objection of the lawmakers.

The Lagos assembly lamented that 520 buses were still awaiting clearance from the bonded warehouse and that they were purchased with taxpayers’ money without approval.

In a motion titled, ‘Lagos State House of Assembly Motion Number 2, member representing Eti Osa 2, Gbolahan Yishawu, stated that the executive proposed to spend N17bn to purchase the buses in the 2017 budget, which was not approved by the Assembly.

“In the 2018 and 2019 budgets, the state government proposed N24bn and N7bn respectively, but these were not approved.

“The state government still went ahead to import 820 buses at N7bn, and out of them, 520 are still awaiting clearance at the ports,” he said.

This is coming weeks after the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) invaded the house of the former governor in Epe in Lagos State.
