gathers that the senator said his controversial revelation of the running cost for senators closed the chapter of people demanding to know how much federal lawmakers earn.
He stated: “There should be no grey areas in public office; and now that Nigerians know what the members of the Assembly are earning, they should also know the running cost of our ministers; what is the running cost of our governors?
“What is the running cost of head of government parastatals? What is the running cost of presidential advisers, aides and the men around the government? And what is the running cost of the president and vice president?
”So, it may be unpalatable or painful that I revealed what we are being given every month; but it has healed and brought a close chapter to the fact that people don’t know what we are actually earning. Now we know.
”If you are doing some good to your people, they know very well that it is not an act of charity, not philanthropy; that you are giving them what rightly belongs to them.”
