It is wrong for Nigerians to think National Assembly members are highly overpaid- Buhari

The President, Muhammadu Buhari has said it is wrong for Nigerians to perceive the National Assembly as being “highly overpaid” for doing little- The statement was made on Wednesday when the House of Representatives launched The Green Chamber Magazine, a publication by the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs.

The President was represented by the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who mentioned that the parliamentarians did not share money without working.

He said the lack of trust in the lawmakers had made their critics not to see the enormous work they were doing for the country.

At the event were other dignitaries such as the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, representing President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; Governor of Katsina State and former Speaker of the House, Bello Masari; Governor of Imo State and former member of the Senate, Hope Uzodinma, among others.
