Nigerian Senate confirms members receive N13.5 million monthly, apart from salaries; defends payment


The Nigerian Senate has confirmed a statement made by one of its member, Shehu Sani, on the monthly “take home” of the senators.

Senator Sani who represents Kaduna Central disclosed the figure and the N700,000 salary of senators in an interview last week.

Reacting to the statement, Senate spokesman, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, said Mr. Sani did not disclose anything new as the figure he gave out about running cost of the offices of Senators were contained in various line items and expenditure heads of the budget of the National Assembly which has been made public.

Abdullahi dismissed any insinuations that Sani’s colleague were unhappy with him and said if people had looked critically at the budget of the National Assembly which has since been made public, they would have seen that various line items like traveling, medicals, consultancy and the rest were captured in the budget and they were the funds divided for each Senator’s use.

“Almost all holders of elective and appointive offices have running costs allocated to their offices and that cannot be said to be part of their salaries”, Abdullahi stated.

This is the first time the Upper Chamber is making public allowances and emoluments of its members.
