Senators Do Not Get Jumbo Salaries – Adeyeye


The Chairman, Senate Committee on Media and Public Affairs, Senator Dayo Adeyeye, said on Sunday that Nigerian senators did not get jumbo salaries as being misconstrued in many quarters.

Rather, the National Assembly member, who said the legislature in Nigeria was underfunded, added that what accrued to a senator in Nigeria was not up to five per cent of what a senator got in America.

Adeyeye, who represents Ekiti South Senatorial District in the upper chamber, spoke at Ise Ekiti, his home town during a thanksgiving service and reception in his honour at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Oraye, Ise Ekiti and Ise Ekiti Town Hall respectively.
