SERAP To Meet Saraki Over Details of Lawmakers' Salaries, Allowances

Representatives from Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) will on Thursday, 21 September 2017 visit the National Assembly to meet with the Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki to discuss issues relating to details of annual salaries and allowances of lawmakers.

“We are pleased to accept the invitation from the Senate President to visit the National Assembly to discuss matters of public interest following SERAP’’s letter to Saraki to disclose details of salaries and allowances of members of the Senate,” said Timothy Adewale, SERAP deputy director.

“We will use the opportunity of the face-to-face meeting to ask pertinent questions and seek detailed information and clarifications on the exact salaries and allowances that each senator receives monthly or yearly.”

Adewale said that the Office of the Senate President contacted SERAP yesterday to set up a meeting for Thursday. The meeting, scheduled for 1:00pm at the National Assembly Complex follows SERAP’s request to Saraki to “urgently explain to Nigerians if it is true that a Nigerian Senator gets N29 million in monthly pay, and over N3 billion a year.”

Mr Bamikole Omishore, the Special Adviser to Saraki on New Media, had said on Sunday in Abuja that he would contact SERAP and other CSOs for a meeting to give more details on the yearly earnings of senators.
