President Muhammadu Buhari Says It Is Wrong For Nigerians To Think National Assembly Members Are Overpaid

President Muhammadu Buhari has said it isn't right for Nigerians to see the National Assembly as being "exceptionally overpaid" for doing close to nothing.

He said the absence of trust in the administrators had made their faultfinders not to see the gigantic work they were accomplishing for the nation.

President Buhari said this in Abuja on Wednesday when the House of Representatives propelled The Green Chamber Magazine, a production by the House Committee on Media and Public Affairs.

At the occasion were the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, who spoke to the President; Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege, speaking to President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; Governor of Katsina State and previous Speaker of the House, Bello Masari; Governor of Imo State and previous individual from the Senate, Hope Uzodinma, among others.

Speaker of the House, Femi Gbajabiamila; and Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Wase, drove chief officials and individuals to the occasion.

Buhari, talking through Mohammed, said the parliamentarians didn't share cash without working.

He stated, "Heretofore, the open impression of the National Assembly is that of a bicameral lawmaking body where excessively agreeable and profoundly overpaid individuals simply stuff wads of money notes into their pockets for little work done. This off-base recognition has come about somewhat from the absence of comprehension of the colossal work of officials, particularly outside the glare of TV cameras.

"Be that as it may, with a magazine that will be the legitimate wellspring of anything that goes on in the House – movements being moved, bills being passed, national issues being talked about and body electorate ventures – the open will be better educated on the exercises of the House, and this will thus reflect in an improved open observation.

"What's more, it will assist the House with telling its own story, as opposed to depending on others to assume responsibility for their account. It is said that nobody can recount to your story superior to you."

A previous Director of Kenya's Anti-Corruption Commission and Director of the Kenya School of Laws, Prof. Plo Lumumba, who was a keynote speaker at the occasion, inquired as to whether the officials were following the strides of Nigeria's establishing fathers who, he stated, had a reasonable vision for the nation.

He stated, "I read your incredible establishing pioneers. I read crafted by Nnamdi Azikiwe and I tuned in to him in those early days. He was as smooth as he was energetic in telling Nigerians and Africans – in light of the fact that he was known as the Zik of Africa – that authority is about assistance. This magazine is an event for you to show to Africa that you are worker pioneers.
