Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Honorable Yakubu Dogara, revealed that during his tenure, he received a total allowance of 25 million naira, in addition to a monthly salary of 400 thousand naira.

He stated, “While I was Speaker, my salary was 400 thousand naira, and my total allowance was 25 million naira. I instructed my accountant to open a separate account for the allowances, and I never once took any money out of that account. Everything that came into that account was used to cater to the needs of constituents.

"My accountant complained about the high demand on the account, and I told him if the money there is finished, borrow, and when money comes in, return it to where you had taken it from.

"I am sharing this so Nigerians will give their legislators breathing space and understand that the narrative about members’ pay is not true.”
