Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has described the construction of a new official residence for him as a waste of public funds, saying that the Aguda House where he currently stays is sufficient and up to standard.
Osinbajo stated this on Friday at an interactive meeting with Pastors and church leaders at the Fountain of Life Church, Ilupeju, Lagos.
According to him, the N6 billion already spent on the project was a misapplication of funds, adding however that with the level of construction already done, government have no option but to complete it and find a different use for it.
“There is no need for a new Vice President’s house; it is a kind of waste; we are now in a situation where we cannot abandon it; it has to be completed and used for a different thing,” he said.
Speaking also on the huge amount voted for the State House Medical Centre, the Vice President said the medical facility is for the use of all Nigerians and have to be equipped with facilities available.
