Hon. Bamidele disagrees with colleagues over 37Billion Naira for renovation of NASS


Hon. Bamidele Salam, a member of house of Representatives, representing Ede North, Ede South, Egbedore and Ejigbo Federal constituency of Osun in the National Assembly as took to the social media to disagree over the 37Billion naira for renovation of NASS.

See his tweet below
I am a member of @nassnigeria but I sincerely do not think we need a 37 billion Naira renovation of that edifice now. 
Apart from the Chambers of NASS which need some upgrade in the audio & recording system, the entire structure needs no renovation more than our classrooms, hospitals and roads which are mostly in a decrepit condition. 
As an advocate of an aggressive microcredit strategy for job creation, I would rather want to see 370,000 small businesses get 100k interest free loan within 12 months rather than have 1 edifice swallow that sum within the same period. 
If we mop up all funds voted for renovations of the Presidential villa and other offices of political leaders and top civil servants, we will raise more than a quarter of a trillion Naira that can be injected into SMES in the coming year.
I will, by God's grace, be making this open advocacy on the floor of the House of Representatives when the House reconvenes in January. 
It is never late to change a wrong policy!
