Why I Exposed How Much We Receive As Senators –Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu Sani has explained why he revealed how much he and his colleagues receive monthly as running cost.

Sani had confirmed that each Senator gets N13.5 million as running cost.

The lawmaker noted that this was in addition to the over N750,000 monthly consolidated salary and other allowances of each member of the Senate.

In an interview with BBC, Sani said “I decided to burst it open. It was a moral issue.

“The National Assembly is one of the most non-transparent organs of government. It pricked my conscience and I decided to burst the bubble and open the National Assembly to public scrutiny.”

“If the expenses payment system was ended then parliament would only be attractive to people who contribute ideas,” he said.
