NASS Clears Air on Recent N2 Million Allocation to Senators, says it’s for Running Cost


The Management of the National Assembly has disclosed that the payment of N2 million to each of the 109 Senators last week was meant for the running costs of their offices.

The clarification by the senate’s bureaucracy was contained in a statement by the Clerk to the National Assembly, Magaji Tambuwal, and signed by the Secretary, Research and Information, Dr. Ali Umoru.

The statement lamented the criticisms that greeted the payment of the money since the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpabio, made it public shortly before the Federal Lawmakers embarked on their current annual recess.

It explained that the funds were actually appropriated for the 2023 National Budget, adding that the National Assembly members had not been paid any salary or allowance since their inauguration on June 13.
