It's tragic Nigerian senators earn more than Trump, UK PM




Chairman of the Movement for Nigeria’s Total Transformation, Chief Areoye Oyebola, has expressed displeasure over the salaries of Nigerian federal lawmakers .
Oyebola said

“It is also strange, unthinkable and very disheartening that a senator, not minding the grinding poverty of Nigerians, earns $1.7m a year, which is far higher than the $400,000 yearly income of the United States’ President, whose stupendous country is the richest in the world.
Even a member of the House of Representatives also earns more than the American President. What a tragic and pathetic situation!.
“Worse still, each of our National Assembly members earns more than the British Prime Minister, while the pay of a member of Ghana’s unicameral legislature is a very small fraction of our House of Representatives’ member jumbo pay of more than N10m in a month, let alone the monumental quarterly allowances that have led to serious public outcry.
“The multi-million naira earned by the leadership of the Senate and the House of Representatives even worse, more outrageous and mind-boggling,”‎ he said.
