Saraki to meet CSOs over senators’ salary

Senate President Bukola Saraki has said a roundtable will be held with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) over salaries of lawmakers.

His media aide, Bamikole Omishore, in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja, said the meeting would be to give more details on the earnings of senators.

The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP), had urged Saraki to make public the salary of lawmakers.

“The attention of the office of the President of the Senate has been drawn to demand for more details regarding the earnings of senators of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“Having released the breakdown of the National Assembly budget, the most comprehensive in the history of Nigerian Senate, it seems the release of pay slips is yet to clarify earnings of Nigerian senators.

“Senate President has agreed to a roundtable with SERAP and other CSOs to enlighten them and answer genuine questions regarding the matter.

“I will make contact with SERAP and other CSOs for a date convenient for all parties in the next few days,” Omishore said.
