JUMBO PAY FOR LEGISLATORS SHOULD BE SLASHED
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.
