Why we won’t disclose our salaries – Nigerian Senate
The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Aliyu Abdullahi has insisted that the senate would not disclosed salaries of its members.
Abdullahi said this during a live programme on Channels Television entitled, ‘Politics Today’ and monitored during the weekend.
Recall that the Chairman, Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay (SAN), has claimed that a Nigerian senator earns N29m per month.
When the presenter asked him how much he earned, Abdullahi angrily said it was rude of the presenter to ask him how much each senator earned.
Abdulahi said, “You don’t expect me to come out on national television to say this is what I earn. It is not done. I cannot ask you as a journalist how much you earn. It is not done.
“If anybody is interested in how much we are getting paid, you know where to get the information. The documents are available. If Nigerians won’t believe that, is it what I will say that they will believe?”
