Nigerian Senate at war over allowance, while the country burns!

While Nigerians are in fear, with regards to the crisis in the South East, Jos, Rivers, etc, and coupled with the strike actions across the country, members of the upper chambers of the National Assembly have declared war on the leadership, as a result of the continuous delay in the payment of allowances by the National Assembly bureaucracy.

It was learnt that the last minute postponement of the resumption announced by the Clerk to the National Assembly, Mr. Sani Omolori, was to give the leadership of the Senate time to calm frayed nerves of members who besieged the office of the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki and that of his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.

Senators, it was authoritatively gathered, were unhappy with the senate president and other principal officers over the repeated delay in the payment of their allowances.

Some senators told Daily Sun that they were paid their “paltry” August salaries before the Sallah break, adding that the “juicy” allowances which run into millions of naira were frequently delayed.

  1. Nigerians need to know your salaries and allowances if you really work and worth all the benefits. Transparency is the motor of democracy.
