Stop Questioning Senators’ Jumbo Pay, Focus On Our Work – Lawan To Nigerians

The president of the senate, Ahmad Lawan, has advised Nigerians on often questioning of claimed jumbo pay received by national assembly members.

Lawan asked Nigerians to demand for accountability and the output of the lawmakers and the legislature in general instead of questioning the “jumbo pay” received by lawmakers.

Speaking on Friday at a retreat for top management staff of the National Assembly and National Assembly Service Commission in Abuja, Lawan said that the funding the National Assembly receives is inadequate and as a result, ”many lawmakers struggle to do things by themselves.”

He said:

Can we debate the functions of the National Assembly rather than talk about the jumbo pay? Where is the jumbo pay? We should be looking for value for money.

So when we always debate on “jumbo pay” instead of what should be the functions and hold us responsible for what we are able to do or what we are not able to do; ask for what you think we should be doing rather than saying close the Senate or close the National Assembly. Do you understand the implication of this?

in a budget of over N13 trillion, the National Assembly will have a budget of N125 to N128 billion. What percentage is that? It’s less than 1 per cent. So where is the remaining 99 per cent?
