The Nigerian House of Representatives has on Friday described the publication which alleged that it has commenced the distribution of cars to her 360 members at this trying moment as baseless and misleading.
“It has come to the attention of the House of Representatives that a newspaper report on Friday, March 27, 2020, had insinuated that the Green Chamber is distributing official vehicles for the 360 members of the House at this critical moment that the country is battling to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
“This story is rather unfortunate at this time that Nigeria and Nigerians are striving hard to address the pandemic that has forced the Federal Government, and even the various states’ governments, to take drastic measures.
As a housee, we are not unmindful of the mood of the nation at this critical time and are committed to ensuring the country stands united in these trying times.
“It is out of that commitment that the House on Tuesday, March 24, 2020, introduced and passed the Emergency Economic Stimulus Bill, 2020.” The statement reads.
