The National Assembly is broke declares leader of senate, Ali Ndume.
The senate leader Ali Ndume stated that federal legislators were not receiving their salaries as at when due.
Ndume said: “I know that the whole country is in financial difficulty, not only National Assembly.
“I have been in the National Assembly since 2003 but things keep getting worse; I think they paid us last month’s salary on the 16th of the following month or thereabouts.”
He also said: “It is not only with the national assembly, some states have not been able to pay salaries for six months, one year.
“Some states were even asking their workers to go and farm for two days and work for the other three days in a week.”
Sometimes, it’s begs to wonder how he can compare legislator’s salaries with government workers some of whom have not been paid for months and even a year.
Truly, those who live in glass houses should not complain that they don’t have mirrors.
