Reps deny media reports of distributing official vehicles to members

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has denied reports claiming that it is distributing cars to its members.

House Spokesman, Benjamin Kalu, frowned at a newspaper report that the Green Chamber is distributing official vehicles to the 360 members of the House at a critical moment that the country is battling to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.

Mr. Kalu described the report as unfortunate, coming at a time Nigeria and Nigerians are striving hard to address the pandemic that has forced the Federal and states governments to take drastic measures.

A statement issued by the House Spokesman reads in part; “Not only has the National Assembly been closed since Tuesday, the 24th of March in the wake of the pandemic, most lawmakers are also in their constituencies.
