Following the valedictory session to mark the end of the seventh Senate on Thursday, June 4, the outgoing Senate President, David Mark, and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu reportedly left the National Assembly complex without their usual convoy.

It was said that the senators drove out of the complex in their personal vehicles without siren, leaving their exotic official vehicles parked at the parking spaces allocated to the offices of the principal officers.

Officially, the two officers have five vehicles each in their convoy, which consists of two principal vehicles, two security vehicles; two pilot pick up vans and two power motorbikes.

According to a Senate committee clerk, the principal officers were meant to drop their fleet of vehicles as it belongs to the National Assembly.

“The vehicles are the property of the National Assembly and the Clerk of the National Assembly, being the Chief Accounting Officer, will account for all the vehicles. Hence, the man waited after the session to take possession of the vehicles,” the clerk told Punch anonymously.
