House of Rep Member, Akin Alabi Is Trending on Twitter… This Is Why

A member of the House of Representatives, Akin Alabi, is trending on social media Twitter over the amount approved by President Muhammadu Buhari for the renovation of the National Assembly complex.

There has been a lot of criticisms on the approval of N37bb for the refurbishment of the edifice.

Alabi, who is one of the lawmakers that use Twitter almost daily, voiced his opinion alongside other lawmakers that had earlier spoke against spending such a huge amount on the edifice.

“I see no reason why we should spend N37b renovating the National Assembly. Yes, we need upgrade on some aspects like the electronic systems (sound system, voting system, etc) as they are outdated but N37b? No. Let’s spend that on our schools and hospitals,” he wrote on his Twitter page.
