Nigerian Senators Earn Peanuts – Senator Tejuoso by chiwetaluAGU(m): 1:04pm On Jun 18
The senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District, Olanrewaju Tejuoso has lamented that Nigerian senators are paid peanuts, hence their inability to achieve much.

Tejuoso, who doubles as Chairman, Senate Committee on Health claimed what some of them spent daily was more than what they earned.

He told Punch that, “All I can say is that whatever we are paid is not up to what we pay to and what we do for our people (constituents) back home. We are paid peanuts compared to the expenses we incur daily. We pay their (constituents) school fees, rent, funeral expenses and even bills of child delivery. They expect us to do everything. If you don’t do it, they will say you are a bad senator.”

When asked which bills and motions he has sponsored in the Senate, Tejuoso said, “the amendment to the National Health Insurance Scheme Act aimed at ensuring that we make it mandatory for every Nigerian to contribute and to make the administration of the health insurance process better. We also have the Cancer Bill to ensure that we have more cancer centres for people to have their cancers managed in the country.

He should give his poor pay package to a state school teacher and take the rich paycheck of the teacher.

Nigerians, we take things to seriously.
Our honourable Senator is known for being sarcastic & has a marvelous wit.
You guys didn't read where he said "whatever we are paid is not up to....." . How can somebody be paid peanuts & he still can't categorically say it?
He was only joking.
OUR SENATORS ARE THE HIGHEST PAID WORLD OVER, ON & OFF PAPER.

Of course, that's why they are so poor. Only a poor man collects furniture allowance of over N50 million as he cannot afford chairs in his house.

Don't turn this into an APC thing. These senators do not know party differences when they share our commonwealth. besides, it was not the APC led NASS that increased its own salary by 100%.

senator Lanre Tejuoso bleeped up big time with this blood sucking statement. people like u are the reasons y Evans ventured into kidnapping. u r lucky he has been nabbed, otherwise u wud av been his next target. it is true that constituents bombard politicians with their problems the same politicians created for them. it is also worthy of note that the politicians do not most times make themselves available to attend to them.
Jst fix things in this country otherwise a time bomb will soon explode that will consume the greedy politicians o. be warned !

wealth from corruption is the reason all the leaders from all geopolitical regions are shouting one Nigeria while none is shouting restructuring or secession. God bless Biafra,the land of the rising sun.
