Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Prof. Itse Sagay has refused to back down from allegations that Senators and members of the House of Representatives collect jumbo salary.

Sagay had, at a lecture he delivered at the Nigerian Society of International Law public lecture on Tuesday, in Lagos, entitled The many afflictions of anti-corruption crusade in Nigeria, alleged that a Senator gets N29 million in monthly.

 “From the information I have gathered, a Nigerian Senator earns about N29 million a month and over N3 billion a year.
