Itse Sagay has shunned the Senate’s call to President Muhammadu Buhari to “check” him and said yesterday that he spoke the truth and would not stop until the Senators stopped milking Nigeria.
Sagay had said in a lecture that the annual salary of a Nigerian Senator was $1.7 million, compared to that of a U.S. President whose annual salary was $400,000.
Prof Sagay said, according to Vanguard, “I criticize them for the huge amount of money they are taking out of the country. They are creating a situation in which Nigeria does not have enough funds; we have kidnapping, there is Boko Haram, we have militants, armed robbery and so on.
“That is basically what I said. I spoke the truth. They have wardrobe allowance, in other words, we are the ones buying clothes for them to wear. When they arrived Abuja, were they naked? What is their problem?”
