During the presentation of the resolutions of the House, the Speaker of the Assembly, Yakubu Danladi, disclosed that the recision of the chalet’s documents became a necessity to put an absolute end to the abuse of power and chart a developmental map for the state.

The House, in its determination charged the state government to apply every legal weaponry at its disposal to retrieve the chalet from the former governor.

Awodiji had, while presenting his report, observed among other things that the Alimi Chalet was solely built by the state government as a guest chalet for governors and not severance package.

One of Saraki’s close ranks said, “What is the big deal about this bungalow? The government has broken into the house and the Deputy Governor has been living there. Did their report state that the property was illegally acquired? No. The governor and his people are interested in the house and they can have it if it makes them feel better.
