It seems President Buhari‘s Aso Rock is not the presidential office fighting a pest infestation, after a White House work order obtained by News4 has been found to include reports of mice, cockroaches and ants.
Hundreds of requests for repairs and pest control were reportedly made in 2017 by the White House officials to the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA).
There were reports of mice in the Navy mess room service area and the Situation Room, cockroach infestations, and ants in the Chief of Staff’s office.
The GSA manages the building maintenance and repairs of, among other federal government facilities, the West Wing and East Wing of the White House.
“They are old buildings. Any of us who have old houses know old houses need a lot of work,” former GSA Inspector General Brian Miller said. “It’s an enormous job. GSA is assigned to manage that job.”
