Hon. Akin Alabi Against ₦37b NASS Renovation Plan

Honourable Akin Alabi has spoke against the plan to renovate the National Assembly with a huge sum of 37billion naira in the 2020 budget.

Akin Alabi representing Egbeda-Ona Ara Federal Constituency of Oyo State at the House of Representatives said he sees no reason why the leadership of the National Assembly should ask for such a huge amount of money for renovation.

However, he admitted to the fact that the complex needs upgrade particularly on the electronic systems but the amount demanded is too much. He said he would prefer that the said amount of money is channeled into the education and health sectors. He made his position known to Nigerians via social media which has since been welcome with massive applause.

I see no reason why we should spend N37b renovating the National Assembly. Yes, we need upgrade on some aspects like the electronic systems (sound system, voting system etc) as they are outdated but N37b? No. Let’s spend that on our schools and hospitals.

There is no doubt that majority of Nigerians disagree with the legislative and the executive arms of the Nigeria government who have agreed to use the billions as stated. There argument is that the budget for health and education are paltry in the budget while ₦37b is proposed for the renovation of the NASS Complex that has no problem. Which means the project is only another opportunity to steal from the country’s pulse.
