Saraki Speaks On Increasing Senators’ Allowance

Senate President, Bukola Saraki has reacted to claims by the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) that he plans to increase salaries of Nigerian senators.

On Tuesday, SERAP made in a statement on its Twitter Page raised the alarm over alleged plans by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki to increase salaries of Nigerian senators to N15m.

But in reaction, Saraki in a statement by his Special Assistant on New Media, Olu Onemola, described the allegation as untrue.

He urged SERAP to get its fact right.

The statement reads, “Dear @SERAPNigeria, there is no such “alleged decision” to increase the allowances of Senators. An organization like yours needs to be more careful, especially when pushing out information meant for public consumption. Thank you.

“To avoid any doubt: there is no plan to amend the allowances of Senators. The tweet by @SERAPNigeria is baseless and untrue. The public should disregard this ENTIRELY.”
