Bayelsa Assembly approves N3bn loan to purchase cars for lawmakers

The Bayelsa State House of Assembly has approved N3bn loan for the purchase of cars for legislators and other political office holders.

The Speaker of the House, Mr. Kombowei Benson confirmed this to newsmen on Thursday in Yenagoa.

Benson said the decision was taken at a closed door meeting.

He said the legislators decided to consider the loan privately.

He said, “The sitting lasted for less than 30 minutes and we felt there was no need for media coverage for such a brief session.

“There is a need for the cars; we have been without cars for about two years after our inauguration.

“The same goes for other political appointees who need cars to function effectively and discharge their duties.’’

He said the dying security outfit of the state – Operation Doo Akpo will also be provided with vehicles.

He said the decision was a collective one by members of the House.
