Breakdown Of What A Senator Earns In Nigeria

In the United States of America, a Senator who is elected to represent his constituency only earns $14,500 monthly.

But the case his different in Nigeria, because unlike an American senator, our Nigerian senator always smiles home with jumbo pay.

In order to back up the point, permit me to give a breakdown of your Senator's earning;

1. RUNNING COST

His Newspaper allowance is worth.......N1.24m

Wardrobe allowance.....N0.62m

Recess allowance .......N0.25m

His Accommodation........N4.97m

Utilities ...........N0.83m

For his Domestic staff......N1.86m

For his Entertainment.......N0.83m

Personal Assistant............N0.62m

Vehicle Make Allowance...N1.86m

Leave Allowance...............N0.25m

TOTAL Running cost......N13.58m/month. This adds up to N162.96m annually

2. CONSOLIDATED SALARY

A senator take home salary every month is N750,000, and if you sum it up, it will be N9,000,000 annually

3. As a lawmaker of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, He is also entitled to N200m annually to execute projects in his constituency

Total

Annual Salary...N9,000,000 per annum

Running Allowed...N163,000,000 per annum

Constituency....N200,000,000 per annum

TOTAL N372,000,000.00 per annum.

They also pocket;

Severance Gratuity............ N7.43m
