Senate President Saraki and Speaker of the House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, may have rejected the N10 billion included in the 2016 budget proposals of the Ministry of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for the building of their official quarters.

Saraki and Dogara, last week, agreed that the cost of the buildings should be reduced to one billion Naira each, to save the country N8 billion, reports Vanguard, citing National Assembly sources.

They were said to have informed the chairmen of the Committees on FCT in both chambers to reflect the decision in their report to the Committees on Appropriation.

The Senate President and Speaker said in view of the economic situation in the country and the need for public officials to be frugal, building houses worth N6bn and N4bn respectively for them was insensitive. The two legislative heads said the FCT ministry should scale down the cost of the projects or forget the idea until after their tenure.

The Senate President was living in his personal house in Maitama area of Abuja until a fire incident last year forced him to relocate to an official guest house while Dogara stays in a rented apartment.
