This is coming a few hours after the lawmaker representing Ede federal constituency, Honourable Bamidele Salam declared his intention of opposing the plan in the house in January.
The lawmaker reacting to the decision of Honorable Salam expressed that the money being budgeted for renovation should be used to build more schools and hospitals for the citizens of the nation.
See his tweet below:
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 Yes, we need upgrade on some aspects like the electronic systems (sound system, voting system etc) as they are outdated but N37b?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.
