The new Senators and House of Representatives members were sworn in on June 9, 2015 and have gone on recess twice since then.
Nigeria’s Senators and House of Representatives members have reportedly received a sum of N93 million as recess allowance.
The new legislators were sworn in on June 9, 2015 and have adjourned twice since then.
They are currently on a six-week recess which they embarked upon on August 13 and will resume on September 29.
The recess allowance is 10 percent of the annual basic salary of the legislators, a total sum of N93,307,662, according to Daily Trust.
Following a recent uproar, the legislators promised to slash their salaries but this move has been subsequently rejected by the Senate.
