Nigerian Government To Spend Over N30bn On National Assembly Renovation

The federal government has said that the renovation of the National Assembly complex will gulp N30.2 billion.

The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mallam Musa Mohammad Bello, disclosed this during an oversight tour of some projects by the Senate Committee on Federal Capital Territory, on Thursday.

A sum of N37 billion was appropriated for the rehabilitation work in the 2020 budget but was slashed to N9.25billion when the budget was reviewed mid year.

But the Minister told the Senate committee that the contract sum for the project is N30.2 billion of which N9.2 billion had been paid to the contractors.

He said the contract, which commenced on April 16, 2022, would be completed on August 15, 2023.

He said the National Assembly Phase II, popularly known as “the White House” has not undergone any renovation work since it was constructed in 1999.
