The Lagos State House Assembly has set up a committee to investigate the purchase of 820 buses by the government of former Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.

The House said it is important to investigate the purchase of the 820 buses out of the 5,000 buses proposed by Ambode for mass transit because the lawmakers objected to the idea originally.

In the 2018 and 2019 budgets, the state government proposed 24 billion naira and and 7 billion naira respectively, but these were not approved.

He added that the House is worried that 520 buses are still awaiting clearance from the bonded warehouse and that they were purchased with taxpayer’s money without approval.
