Sokoto Assembly Approves N2b Loan for Purchase of Motorcycles To Civil Servants


The Sokoto State House of Assembly has approved  the sum of N2 billion loan for the purchase of 10,000 motorcycles for the civil servants in the state.

This followed a letter sent to the assembly by the state government requesting the granting of the loan.

The leader of the APC Caucus, Hon Bello Ambarura said the request would enable the state government, through the State Chapter of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), to secure facility for the purchase of the motorcycles.

Ambarura said; “In the light of this development, the State Chapter of Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) approached a bank for the financing of the supply”.

“This is to be distributed to the state civil servants at the cost of N260,000 per unit at an interest rate of 14 per cent.
” The period is 24 months and payment would be deducted from the beneficiaries’ salaries.

Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Alhaji Abubakar Magaji, who presided over the plenary put the motion into a voice vote, where it was unanimously adopted.
