The raging debate over the monstrous wardrobe allowance that has been appropriated for members of the National Assembly, has been going on in the country in the past few days.

Little else is being discussed with many Nigerians take sides and give their own view on the issue.

Many of the legislators have been silent on the allowance, not mind the fact that Nigerians are not happy with the news that a whopping N8.64 billion has been earmarked for their clothes.

It is only Senator Ben Murray-Bruce who has promised to donate his part of the money to workers in the employ of Osun State whose salary arrears of seven months is no longer funny, and to some widows in Bayelsa State.

Pulse Nigeria Poll ran a poser on this debate with the caption:

Is the NASS justified in approving N8.64b for clothes for legislators?

How Nigeria voted:

18% - Yes, they deserve it

82% - No, they should not go that way

So how will you vote?
