The Senate has harped on the need to review the salary structure of its members following allegations making the round that they receive jumbo pay as wardrobe allowance.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki stated this on Tuesday to senators of the 8th senate upon resumption from their two weeks recess.

Senator Saraki recalled that he had over the week met with the Chairman of Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission, Elias Mbam to get accurate information on the true state of all salaries and allowances for members of the National Assembly.

HOMELAND NEWS reports that the President of the Senate also reiterated that in the coming days after the leadership of the National Assembly is fully established, it will be setting up an ad hoc committee to reappraise the structure of the national assembly budget to make it more open and ensure that the entire budget is in line with economic realities.
