There is this important and sensitive motion I moved on the floor about recovery of government properties, especially the Alimi Chalet acquired by former Senate President, Bukola Saraki. The House passed resolution that the executive should recover the property and revoke all title documents, because it meant to serve sitting governor of the state as chalet.
