Senate insists N37b voted for National Assembly renovation justified

• Condemns SERAP’s court action against project
•’Why PDP senators seem silent on $30b loan request’

The Senate yesterday insisted that the N37 billion voted for the renovation of the National Assembly complex in the budget was justified.

The Senate spokesman and Chairman of the Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Godiya Akwashiki, who expressed shock at the court action initiated against the legislature by the Socio-Economic Right And Accountability Project (SERAP) regarding the renovation project, said that the dilapidated condition of the National Assembly building required urgent attention.

“What is the outcry for, that they should not renovate the National Assembly, or what? I have said it before, that this issue has nothing to do with the National Assembly. It is all about the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA). The building belongs to the FCDA, which built it. The FCDA management knows how much it needs to fix the complex which is in a dilapidated condition,” Akwashiki stated.
