That is what the hollow chamber we created has either been or has become. Going by the report of PremiumTimes that finally, Nigerian Senate confirms members receive N13.5 million monthly, separate from salaries.
The good thing in clamouring that professionals go into politics is that once they infiltrate that system it gets to a point where one or two of them can no longer tag along.

The process by which these fellows are elected is obnoxiously so expensive that even saints will talk like Aliyu Abdullahi that what Mr Shehu Sani said “is nothing new”.
Of course IT IS NEWS, but IT IS NOTHING NEW.
