“As a senator, you are entitled to six aides who are paid by the National Assembly Service Commission and they are paid directly into the account. Will you count that as my salary?

“Also, I am entitled to travel allowance and Eastacode which does not form part of the salary.”

Senator Bashiru who averred that the country will only make marginal savings if the national assembly is scrapped, also called for the reorganization of government agencies so they can be more efficient and valuable.
