But a former lawmaker, Shehu Sani had revealed that each senator earns N800, 000 as basic salary excluding other allowances.

There have been calls from several quarters about a reduction in the cost of governance. There was a time the former Imo governor, Rochas Okorocah who is now a serving senator suggested that each estate should have just one senator in other to reduce the cost of governance while some calls for a reduction in their salary.

Buhari in 2014: I will cut cost of governance.
Buhari in 2020: It’s wrong to think National Assembly members are overpaid.
Now that Saraki is out of NASS, and someone they can control is Senate president, Buhari is suddenly defending NASS. Won ti gbe Nigerians ni handicap.

Probably the story of how Buhari squandered Nigeria’s wealth will be heard when he leaves office .

Sometimes I get happy that Buhari actually became president because if he had not some people would have gone to his tomb after his death like a saint.
