A Nigerian senator earns more in Salary than Barack Obama of the US and David Cameron of the UK. I'll leave you to tell how much Nigerian president goes home with at the end of each month. An Indian lawmaker must work for at least 49 years to earn the annual salary of a Nigerian senator.

In the United States, while the minimum wage is $1,257 (N191, 667), a US lawmaker earns $15,080 (N2.3m) per month. In the United Kingdom, a lawmaker earns $8,686(N1.3m) monthly while the gross national minimum wage is $1,883 (N283, 333) per month. Also, Nigerian lawmakers earn higher than their counterparts in Sweden. With a monthly pay of $7,707 (N1.2m), a lawmaker in Sweden will need to work for over 12 years to equal what a Nigerian senator earn per annum.

The president of the United States takes home an anual salary of $400,000 (N64.156,0m), including a $50,000 expense allowance making the president the highest paid public servant in the US. The $400,000 includes everything and $350,000 out of it is taxable.

Selected States (salary per annum)
The prime minister of the United Kingdom......USD 226,627.00
French president......................................... USD 318,072.00
South African president................................USD 296,112.00

NIGERIAN SENATORS
Basic Salary (BS) = N2,484,245.50

Hardship Allowanc: 50% of Basic Salary = N1,242,122.75

Constituency allowance: 200% of BS  =  N4,968,509.00

Furniture Allowance: 300% of BS = N7,452,736.50

Newspaper allowance: 50% = N1,242,122.70

Wardrobe allowance: 25%   = N621,061.37

Recess Allowance: 10%       = N248,424.55

Accommodation: 200%        = N4,968,509.00

Utilities: 30%                      = N828,081.83

Domestic Staff: 35%           = N863,184.12

Entertainment: 30%            = N828,081.83

Personal Assistance: 25%   = N621,061.37

Vehicle Maintenance Allowance: 75%  = N1,863,184.12

Leave Allowance : 10% = N248,424.55

One off payments (Severance gratuity): 300%  = N7,452,736.50

Motor Vehicle Allowance: 400% of BS = N9,936,982.00

Total per month = N29, 479, 749.00   

A senator's anual salary          = over N182 million
multiply by 109 senators (don't forget the House of rep, ministers, ambassadors,  ...)

In addition to the regular and legitimate salaries and allowances of over N17 million ($113,333) and N14.99 million ($99,933) which senators and reps were collecting yearly and the irregular allowance of estacodes, duty tours etc, they were also collecting over N192m ($1.28m) and N140m ($0.93m) respectively in illicit quarterly allocation which is not provided for by RMAFC.

Effectively, a Nigerian senator was taking home at least $1.40m ($1.28m quarterly allocations + $0.113m regular salaries and allowances) as against the $0.174m an American senator takes home hence a Nigeria senator earns at least 8 times as much as an American senator and more than 3 times the American president.

Whereas a Senator in the U.S earns N21, 146,000, the same as a member of the House of Representatives; a UK Member of Parliament earn £64,766 (N14, 896,180)

In other words, a Federal Legislator in Nigeria is paid more than double what a Member of British Parliament earns per annum.

Senate President David Mark alone takes N250 million quarterly or N83.33 million per month. Senate Deputy President Ike Ekweremadu gets N150 million per quarter or N50 million a month.

Mark and Ekweremadu earns in 4 months, six times what the UK Prime Minister earns in a year. David Cameron goes home with £190,000 per anum (N43, 700,000)

In a newspaper news article entitled ‘An Assembly for looting’ written by Musikilu Mojeed with Elor Nkereuwem, the authors rightly claimed that each of the 360 members of the House of Representatives were getting N35 million in cash money in quarterly allocation while each of the 109 Senators pockets N48 million each. These allocations have however been slashed by 20% to N27 million ($180,000) and N38 million ($253,333) respectively due to the 20% reduction requested by the late president.


Please tell me, how do we expect this banana republican hell fire to become a country tomorrow.
Do you still ask why Nigerian politics is a do or die affair?

The freedom of this bartered Nigeria is in the hands of her citizens, The lord Almight has shown us the problems of the country underdevelopments for the past decades, Now what next, waiting for the same people to free you from self slavering, No capital No,  Nigeria will be worst then USSR of 70s/80s or Bangladesh of today without any natural resources,  if the citizens refused to come out we will all die in silence the rich getting richer while the poor being lay to rest.

A wife suspected her husband
for having sex with their maid,
so she set a trap for the husband
by sending the maid to village
for weekend without telling her
husband. At night, the husband
told his usual story 'darling, i
want to go and watch wrestling
match in the sitting room.' he
left. the wife silently went to the
maid's room lying on the bed
naked with no light, he opened
the door, joined her on the bed
without wasting time and
without a word, he had sex with
her, after the fifth round she
said 'it is enough, i catch you, so
this is how you used to have sex
with her, you will do two rounds
telling me you are tired. five
rounds now, you are still
demanding for more.
The gateman replied. "'sorry
madam, i don't know you are the
one. LMAO!.....................................una too much!!! coffee wey I dey drink for hia comot for my nose as I read this.
