By Steve Oko
The General Manager of National Theatre, Dr Stella Oyedepo, has come under fire for spending a whopping N29 million to renovate toilets in the complex.
She had appeared before the House of Representatives Committee on Tourism and Culture to defend the budget of the complex when she told the lawmakers that N29 million was used to renovate 500 toilets in the complex in 2018.
The explanation, however did not go down well with the lawmakers who asked her to substantiate and justify such claims.
Chairman of the committee, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama said: “There’s need to critically look at how you spent N29 million to fix toilets.”
Responding, Oyedepo said: “There were 500 toilets in the complex and it was making the place unattractive because they were in bad shape.
“What we did was to completely overhaul the toilets to make the complex look better. “
Meanwhile, the Committee decided to allow her on the excuse that she just resumed duty recently, although she was asked to “tidy up her papers “.
“The GM just resumed duties, she can be excused but she has to go and put her documents to enable the committee properly do its job.”
