He said,
The official salary of a member, House of Representatives which I also receive monthly is N800,000. I told you I was going to say it, why don’t you wait for me to say it? The office running cost of a member of the House of Representatives is N8.5 million. Those of you who know, know that I said exactly what it is. The problem is what the constituents demand and when when you don’t meet, they begin to call you names. Just before I walked to the stage, I received three e-mails from my constituents demanding for money and demanding for jobs. When you don’t, it becomes an issue,” he added.

Following his disclosure of lawmakers earnings, the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Treaties, Protocols and Agreement, Hon Ossai Nicholas Ossai, told the crowd to disregard the figures mentioned by his colleague. Hon Karu. Ossai told the crowd that he has never received such salary since he joined the National Assembly.

Dino Speaks on lawmakers
Equally at the event was Senator Dino Melaye. Dino also lent his voice saying: “With the insincerity of the National Assembly and the deception of the executive, we need a national budget regulatory office.”
