JUMBO PAY FOR LEGISLATORS SHOULD BE SLASHED

by Hon

The over 40 million Naira collected every quarter by national assembly members (House of rep and senators) is obvious outrageous and should be slashed by at least 50%.


In a country where there is great decay of infrastructure, growing unemployment and majority of the populace live in poverty, it is not fair for the representatives of the people to collect such jumbo pays while the people they represent are suffering great lack.

As honourable men and statesmen who desire the good of their people they national assembly members should accept reduction of their pay being suggested by the Presidency and good people of Nigeria. If they can do this they will actually be warming their way into the hearts of Nigeria, which will eventually be for their good also.

Re. Jumbi Pay for Legislators should be Slashed
by: chukwunweike

The legislative jumbo pay is an insult to the collective intelligence of Nigerians. The idea of constituency project should not have included giving our money directly to senators and house members for capital projects. This is because there is no constituted means of determining whether or not the monies where indeed used for that purpose. The job of the legislature is to pass laws that will improve the general well being of the people including their constituents. In the same vein, other allowances like furniture allowance, car allowance, housing should be scrapped because they are nit justifiable. Career civil servants, teachers, armed forces and police and other government workers do not enjoy similar freebies. To continue to pay them such huge sums is akin to gang raping the nations treasury.

Senators are now ranking themselves, maybe they so called raking and high ranking senators may even ask for more money.
