What I earn as Senate President – Lawan

The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has revealed his monthly salary as the chairman of the National Assembly.

He said he earns N750,000 while other members of the national Assembly receive “what is their salary.”

His declaration, however, excludes other allowances allocated to the lawmakers.

Mr Lawan spoke at the Senators Forum in Abuja on Tuesday.

He had promised that the ninth Senate will be open so Nigerians will know what the lawmakers are doing.

“The 9th National Assembly is going to be open so Nigerians will know what we are doing. I never believe there is anything called jumbo pay to the National Assembly. The National Assembly members receive what is their salary. I receive N750,000 as my salary.

“My office needs to be properly funded and therefore I cannot conduct my oversight without some backing. Nigerians need to understand this. We need to continue relating with Nigerians because they deserve to be explained to,” he said.

According to him, the National Assembly needs proper funding “because the legislature is so critical in any national development.”

The lawmakers further assured that the ninth Senate is determined to ensure that annual budget is passed within three months.
