National Assembly Leaders make more than “the ordinary ₦13m” – Sagay



National Assembly Leaders make more than "the ordinary ₦13m" - Sagay - BellaNaija

Itse Sagay, Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, has said leaders of the National Assembly make more than ₦13 million revealed by Senator Shehu Sani, Punch reports.

The Nigerian Senate had earlier confirmed its members receive ₦13 million monthly, apart from their ₦700,000 monthly salary, as revealed by Sani.

Sagay has in an interview said the leaders of the two houses, Senate President Bukola Saraki, Deputy President Ike Ekweremadu, Speaker of House of Representatives Yakubu Dogara, and Deputy Speaker Yusuf Sulaiman Lasun, make much more.

Sagay says he’s working on revealing how much it is the National Assembly leaders make, and when he does, “it will blow up the country.” He said:

There are many things the press doesn’t know yet. If you come to know the allowances that the leadership of the two houses are getting… My God! It will blow up the country. What is the Senate President getting? It is not the ordinary ₦13 million.

What does he get as Senate President? What is the leader of the House getting, what is the deputy leader of the House getting? What is the Deputy Senate President getting? What are the minority leaders getting in both houses? Go and find out. It is an explosive stuff, I tell you. Eventually, I will come out with the figures. I am working on them now. When I am ready, I will come out with them.

    They earn money for doing nothing. A house full of rogues no wonder the Nation is where it is today
    There’s a need to sanitize the government in Nigeria!, people aspire to get there to amass weath
    and not to serve. From head to toe they are all corrupt. God will punish you all to your fifth generation Isha Allah

      Amin Aṣe! E no go better for dem titi lai-lai.
      May Ọ̀ṣọ́ọ̀sì, the great lord Ogun’s avatar take revenge on them and their thievery for ever. His spitting cobra and sacrificial axe be forever lodged to cause damage to their destinies.
