senator without official cars
Unlike the popular perception that most politicians have official drivers attached to them, one has defied the odds by stating that he has only a “volunteer” driver.
Senator Ali Ndume made this revelation during a press briefing at the National Assembly on Wednesday while addressing a motion to create more coaches for Abuja-Kaduna rail.
He said: “Somebody wanted to add a prayer that they should ban senators and other big men from using the train, that they should use the road. A funny thing also happened that day, a colonel friend of mine came with his excorts and they dropped him there.
“Later again,a big  Sheik Mallam came and joined us. I asked him why he came here when he has soldiers, he said his escorts were happy because e is not going with them put taking the train. 
“Most of you will not believe, I don’t have a driver. I don’t have an official driver. I drive myself, anywhere I go, I drive myself, during my campaign, I drive myself.  
“I am 60 years old but I still have the agility to drive. The driver who drives me here is a volunteer driver. What we do, if he comes in the morning with his car, he stays in my house in Gwarimpa then we move. After this one now, we will both part our ways. There are some people that like that one.”
