I have received my salary for June and it is far below what you people are writing.<br><br>If a minister is travelling to Lagos, would he use his legs' What you call fat salary are monies used to run the constituency because they dont give us additional funds.<br><br>It is the money we use when we travel to Abia, Lagos, Badagry or Kaduna. Next meeting, I will unveil to you.<br><br>You will now see that you are maligning and criticising the National Assembly for nothing.<br><br>Most of my colleagues said they did not know it was going to be like this and I said we came to serve our country as senators.<br><br>When they were outside, they were also saying that all the money was carried by the National Assembly which is not true.<br><br>The money they have given them is not going to be enough.
