National Assembly Members To Get N8.64bn Wardrobe Allowance!

Despite the clamor for reduction in the cost of governance in the country, newly sworn in members of the National Assembly, will from next week, receive a whooping sum of N8.64 billion as wardrobe allowance!

The wardrobe allowance translates to N17.5 million for each of the 360 members of the House of Representatives and N21.5 million for each of the 109 senators. This is apart from other allowances such as furniture, housing and vehicle, which the lawmakers are entitled to.

Each of the 107 senators besides the Senate President and his deputy, will be paid N4, 052,800 as
housing allowance. This sum will be paid to them every year, translating to N433, 649,600 as housing allowance to be paid to the Senate annually, while the Senate President and the Deputy Senate President will be provided accommodation by the federal government.

Also each member of the House of Representatives will be paid N3, 970,425 as housing allowance upon assumption of office.

National service indeed!
