Governor distributes SUVs to lawmakers amidst hardship

CITIZENS COMPASS — Amidst hardship, Kebbi State Governor, Nasir Idris, on Wednesday, March 6, 2024, distributed Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs) to members of the State House of Assembly.

The Governor disclosed that 24 first class Toyota Jeeps were distributed to the beneficiaries. 

The decision comes amidst calls by Nigerians for government officials to reduce their expenses.

Idris, who announced this in a social media post, said his gesture should be seen as “a symbol of our commitment to serving the people of Kebbi State diligently.

“I am honored to fulfill my promise by distributing 24 First Class Toyota Jeeps to the dedicated members of the Kebbi State House of Assembly for their official engagements.

“Today, at the Government House in Birnin Kebbi, I personally presented these vehicles, expressing gratitude for the Assembly’s cooperation and understanding. The harmonious working relationship between the Executive Arm and the Assembly has been paramount. In the spirit of collaboration, I joined the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Usman Muhammad Ankwe, in a test drive of the Jeep allocated to him.”

Citizens Compass reports that the anger was further driven by the fact that the Kebbi governor bragged about distributing imported SUVs at a time that many are asking governments at all levels to help sustain the naira through patronage of local goods.
