A suspended member of the House of Representatives, Honourable Abdulmumin Jibrin, has said he earns more than the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, if the payslips released by the National Assembly on Tuesday are authentic.
In a series of tweets on Wednesday, Jibrin said he had requested his payslips from the National Assembly and would publish it.
“If what I saw is the authentic payslip of Mr Speaker, it means I earn more than him from what I see in my salary statement of account,” he wrote on twitter.
“I have requested for my payslip from NASS, I will publish it and my monthly salary statement of account. Perhaps I have been overpaid,” he added.
The suspended lawmaker said while he largely agreed with the response of Dogara to Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State, it failed to address the call to open up the budget of the House.
“As regard NASS budget, I completely agree with paragraph 9, 10 and 11 but will raise issues on paragraph 5, 6 and the payslip,” he tweeted.
