Senate President Saraki Speaks About N8 billion Wardrobe Allowance

share on:

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki sent out some tweets addressing the N8 billion wardrobe allowance which has thrown Nigerians on Twitter in a frenzy.

In one tweet, he tries to absolve the National Assembly from any responsibility about the allowances, stating that it is the responsibility of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation & Fiscal Commission.

He also says that the Chairman of RMAC informed him that the accurate figure for wardrobe allowance to be paid to the senators is N506,600 per senator. He however didn’t state if it is for the whole 4-year tenure, annually or monthly.

An interesting observation is that Saraki’s tweets include the #OpenNASS hashtag – a hashtag used by political activists asking the National Assembly to publish the details of their spending. Does this mean he supports the #OpenNASS movement or is he just piggybacking on the popular hashtag.

Below are some of his other tweets.
