Senator Ahmed Lawan, the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, on Tuesday when members of the Senators Forum visited him said that there was no jumbo package for National Assembly members.
He revealed that he receives N750,000 monthly.
“I never believed that there is anything called jumbo payment to the National Assembly members,” the senate president said.
“The National Assembly members both in the Senate and the House of Representatives receive just their salaries and I receive N750,000 as my salary,” he added.
Speaking further, the senate president said that although lawmakers belong to different parties, but once at the National Assembly, Nigeria is their constituency, adding that the red chamber would work hard to ensure the unity and progress of the country.
