See the full salary & allowances of The Nigerian Senate and House of Reps – These men take home millions monthly (In Pictures)

See The Salaries And Allowances Of National Assembly Members The RMAFC documents further explain: “Regular allowances are paid regularly with basic salaries while non-regular allowances are paid as at when due. For instance, furniture allowance andeverance gratuity are paid once in every tenure and vehicle allowance which is optional is a loan which the beneficiary has to pay before the end of tenure. It is therefore wrong and misleading to add up allowances irrespective of whether they are regular, refundable or non-regular as the regular annual emoluments of political public office holders.” However, the commission warned that any other allowances received by the affected officials are illegal and the chief accounting officer should be held responsible.

At the same time, with the national minimum salary of N18,000.00 per month and totalling N216,000.00 per annum, it will take an average Nigerian worker, 60 years and 44 years to earn the annual salary and allowances of a Nigerian senator and a member of the House of Representatives respectively.

Naij.com offers you a comparison between the minimum salary in a country and senators’ salaries.

The official data shows that the gap in Chile and Kenya is way bigger than the one in Nigeria. The gap in the UK and Australia is fair. A UK worker will get the same amount of money as an MP in five years and one month, while on the ‘green continent’ – in about six years.
