Stan Buhari Rejects Proposal To Purchase N400m Bulletproof Cars For Him

President Muhammadu Buhari has rejected a proposal to purchase five new bulletproof Mercedes S-600 (V222) cars.

The fortified vehicles are valued at about N400 million.

Buhari, after a proposal by the permanent secretary of the State House, Mr. Nebolisa Emodi, when he briefed him on Wednesday, said that there was no need for the new vehicles as the ones he inherited from former President Goodluck Jonathan were still in good shape.

A top presidency source told State House correspondents last night that the president, however, welcomed other initiatives presented by Emodi to reduce the operating cost of the State House and strengthen its finance and accounts internal control mechanisms.

The source quoted Buhari as telling the permanent secretary: “I don’t need any new cars. The ones I’m using now are just fine.

“Greater effort should be made henceforth to capture all State House expenses within the approved national budget, to avoid the frequent recourse by past administrations to presidential intervention funds.”
