The National Assembly Service Commission should be held responsible for the running cost of N13.5m paid to each senator on a monthly basis, the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission has said.
In a statement by RMAFC spokesman, Mr. Ibrahim Mohammed, the commission said on Wednesday that the approved remuneration of a senator for a month was N1.06m, adding that anything outside the payment was against the law.
Senator Shehu Sani, a senator representing Kaduna Central constituency, had in a recent interview confirmed the reports that each senator gets a jumbo pay of about N40m per quarter.
Sani had explained that each senator receives N13.5m a month for running cost apart from salary and allowances.
