The newly sworn in 8th National Assembly have been accused of being allegedly entitled to the sum of N9billion as wardrobe allowance as from next week.
Considering the fact that the said N9billion would not cover for other allowances such as housing, furniture and vehicle, which are the lawmakers entitlements, Nigerians have taken to the social media to express their displease.
Similarly, management of the National Assembly is reportedly currently allocating offices to the 469 federal lawmakers in both chambers of the NASS ahead of their resumption on June 23 from the two-week recess that they embarked.
Out of the said N9billion wardrobe allowance, each of the 360 lawmakers at the House of Representatives is expected to smile home with about N17.5 million while the 109 senators would have a share of N21.5 million each.
Meanwhile, the new senate president, Senator Bukola Saraki in a different report on Tuesday, promised that the 8th Senate will work to prevent revenue leakages in the country.
