April 30, 2015 – Nigerian Governor, Ngilari Of Adamawa State Buys 2 Lexus Cars & 2 Hilux Vans For $900,000 (N580,000)
The decision of the Adamawa state governor, Bala Ngilari to buy two Lexus SUVs for N180million, about $900,000 and two Hilux pick up vans at N400million have triggered outrage from members of the state House of Assembly.
On Wednesday, the members passed a resolution calling on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to probe the purchases.
The House, now split into factions, further called on the state government to re-instate the sacked Director General of the state Public Procurement Bureau, Malam Bello Umar, who it said was sacked by the executive for querying the purchase and for not following due process.
