Amidst Coronavirus Battle, Nigerian Legislature Shares 2020 Model Cars


The House of Representatives has started taking delivery of the Toyota Camry 2020 model cars acquired for members as official cars, otherwise called utility vehicles, The PUNCH has reliably learnt.
Our correspondent sighted some of the cars at different parking lots within the National Assembly Complex, on Thursday.
The legislators had at an executive (closed-door) session on February 5, 2020, resolved to purchase 400 units of the exotic car.
 The House has, however, kept sealed lips on the cost of each unit as the contract for the supply it was learnt was not awarded to accredited Toyota dealers.
Our correspondent observed that the House procured the V6 Limited Edition variant of the car.
Chairman of the Committee on House Services, Mr. Wale Raji, who confirmed delivery of the cars declined to respond to further enquiries.
 The cars, which belong to the National Assembly, are usually auctioned to the lawmakers after four years.
A check on the website of Toyota revealed that each of the vehicles – depending on the variant, has a price tag of between US$25,000 to US $35,000, excluding the cost of shipping and custom duties, which is about 100 per cent of the actual cost of each unit.
For instance, those with higher specification, which most often than not is the preferred choice of lawmakers, could cost tax payers a tidy sum. Vehicles in this range are: XLE at $29,455, XLE V6 at $34,580, XSE at $30,005 and XSE V6 at $35,130.
