We Are Not As Rich As you Think — Reps Speaker Abbas Tells Nigerians

The speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Tajudeen Abbas, says members of the National Assembly aren’t as rich as Nigerians are made to believe.

Speaking with parliamentary reporters on Wednesday, July 12, the speaker pleaded with the media to help correct the impression.

“You are aware that the parliament is the unsung arm of the government. A lot of the things that people are fed with, you are the cooks. We are partners in Nigeria’s project, that’s why you were invited.

This arm of government is not as rich as being projected. You have heard that members go home with N30 million every week. You will also hear that Nigerian parliamentarians earn much more than American parliamentarians. It is only you that can help the write this wrong.

Whilst, we are not prepared to hoodwink the media, but our plea is to ask you to give out the correct information. Please, make use of the adhoc committee. Relate with them and publish what is true. It will be better for us. We have no other country”.
