The Presidency has proposed N5.231,101,743 for general rehabilitation and repair of fixed assets in the Aso Rock Presidential Villa, Abuja in the 2022 Appropriation Bill submitted to a joint session of the National Assembly last week.
A study of the proposal showed that rehabilitation/repair of office buildings will gulp N5,176,045,297, while residential building will take N55,056,446 out of the N150,590,609,934 expected to be spent by the Presidency.
In the 2021 proposal, N4,854,381,299 was set aside for annual routine maintenance of mechanical/electrical installations in the Villa.
The ongoing construction of the presidential wing in the State House Medical Centre is expected to gulp N21,974,763,310.
According to the estimate, the ongoing phased replacement of vehicles and spares will cost N1.6bn compared to the N436m set aside for a similar purpose in the 2021 proposal.
About N180,089,000 is provided for purchase of tyres for bulletproof vehicles, plain cars, CCU vehicles, platform trucks, jeeps, ambulances and other utility and operational vehicles.
Last year, N116,194,297 was set aside for a similar purpose.Nigeria Youth Movement
