Members of the House of Representatives has began receiving their Toyota Camry 2020 model cars acquired as official cars, otherwise called utility vehicles.
Some of the cars at different parking lots within the National Assembly Complex, on Thursday, Punch said.
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.
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.
Already, about 14 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado sports utility vehicles have already been handed out to presiding as well as other principal officers and chairmen of select House committees.
