Olaifa Jimoh, a member of the House of Representatives, has dispelled insinuations that federal lawmakers collect jumbo salaries, maintaining that no senator receives up to N10 million – Dailytrust reports.
Jimoh, representing the Federal Constituency of Egbado North/Imeko Afon, revealed that senators and members of the House of Representatives do not gain N36m or N25m as speculated.
Yesterday, the senator spoke at the graduation ceremony of 400 young people and women from the Ogun West State Senate District who were educated in vocational skills.
The lawmaker said the news that the world’s best-paying Nigerian lawmakers was nothing but misinformation aimed at tarnishing their reputation in the region.
For this detail, he encouraged anybody interested in learning what federal lawmakers receive to contact the Pay and Wages Committee.
I stand to be challenged; nobody, including all wage and benefits, receives N10 million,” he said.”
