Why I Revealed How Much We Earn As Senators – Shehu Sani by deji17: 11:03pm On Mar 12, 2018 
Why I revealed how much we earn as senators – Shehu Sani March 12, 2018 Kemi Busari Shehu Sani, the Nigerian senator who revealed that he and his colleagues receive N13.5 million as running cost monthly, has explained why he exposed his colleagues. Mr. Sani in an interview with BBC said the payment is a ‘moral issue.’ “I decided to burst it open. It was a moral issue,” he said. He said that the National Assembly is being run with little accountability about how the money is spent. He wants the illegal payment to be scrapped so that the legislative arm of government will be attractive only to people who can contribute ideas. “The National Assembly is one of the most nontransparent organs of government. It pricked my conscience and I decided to burst the bubble and open the National Assembly to public scrutiny. “If the expenses payment system was ended then parliament would only be attractive to people who contribute ideas,” he told BBC. Mr. Sani had in an interview with TheNews revealed that he and his colleagues receive N13.5 million monthly as “running cost”, aside a N750, 000 monthly consolidated salary and allowances which they also receive. Mr. Sani’s revelation is the first by a lawmaker from the Senate since the clamour by Nigerians for a full disclosure of lawmakers’ earnings. The revelation has sparked widespread anger among Nigerians who had always criticised the lawmakers for arbitrarily allocating jumbo pay to themselves. https://www.premiumtimesng.com/news/topnews/261561whyirevealedhowmuchweearnassenatorsshehusani.html 34 Likes 5 Shares

Bravo Sen. Shehu Sani. The then CBN Governor, now Emir of Kano said the Nigeria senate need to be scrapped as their consuming more than 25 % of our national income. The rogues almost eat him raw then. #ScratchNationalAssembly 184 Likes 9 Shares

In saner climes this selfless revelation by Sani is enough to start a revolution. But no,Nigerians are docile and suffering from Stockholm syndrome. A country that has the highest percentage of poor people on earth has the most expensive cost of government. I am not wrong to have given up on Nigeria.

madridguy: Exactly! It took a radical and an activist like Shehu Sani to expose the NASS. What stops people like the following from going to the Senate to replace the rogues they criticized everyday? The Senate and the house of Assembly is too important to be left in the hands of Charlatans. If they can't get their tickets from major parties like APC, PDP, APGA etc, they should go through smaller parties like Labour, KOWA and newly registered political parties Jiti Ogunye, Yusuf Ali, Femi Falana, Itse Sagay, Debo Adeniran, Omoyele Sowore, Rudolph Okonkwo, Festus Keyamo, Charles Oputa aka Charlie Boy, Mr Monday Ubani etc. And if indeed they are not pretenders and fake activist like Dino Melaiye, they should be able to reform this country from within. 22 Likes 2 Shares

It takes just 4 years for a Nigerian Senator/ House of Representatives member to make N648m! This is a rip off! Multiply the N648m by almost 500 then we shall spend almost half a trillion naira on federal legislators I now know why Senator Sarai is still on that seat of Senate presidency. Only him could sign out N648m for a legislator . This legislature is a liability on Nigeria. Senator Melaye is using his 3rd class to earn billions. Wehdone 27 Likes 1 Share

750000 is what percent of 13500000  step by step solution Simple and best practice solution for 750000 is what percent of 13500000. Check how easy it is, and learn it for the future. Our solution is simple, and easy to understand, so don`t hesitate to use it as a solution of your homework. 1. We assume, that the number 13500000 is 100%  because it's the output value of the task. 2. We assume, that x is the value we are looking for. 3. If 100% equals 13500000, so we can write it down as 100%=13500000. 4. We know, that x% equals 750000 of the output value, so we can write it down as x%=750000. 5.

Now we have two simple equations: 1) 100%=13500000 2) x%=750000 where left sides of both of them have the same units, and both right sides have the same units, so we can do something like that: 100%/x%=13500000/750000 6. Now we just have to solve the simple equation, and we will get the solution we are looking for. 7. Solution for 750000 is what percent of 13500000 100%/x%=13500000/750000 (100/x)*x=(13500000/750000)*x  we multiply both sides of the equation by x 100=18*x  we divide both sides of the equation by (18) to get x 100/18=x 5.5555555555556=x x=5.5555555555556 now we have: 750000 is 5.5555555555556% of 13500000 (I am not a Mathematician o...

Sen. Shehu the zoogerians you are fighting for do not worth it. They are too docile and cowardly to do anything about the Jumbo pay, they'll just go about their 'suffersuffer' lives and abandon you to pay a heavy price for trying to be a revolutionary. You'll then gnash your teeth and regret ever taking sides with them worthless cowardly zoogerians when you could have remained silent and chop your own Jumbo pay peacefully.
