  2. How Much Do Nigerian Senators Earn How much does a senator earn as salary in Nigeria? If not and this is the particular question that bothers your mind, then today’s article is just what you need to satisfy your interest. We have prepared a piece of information in order to make it possible for regular Nigeria senator salary in a month. How much are salaries and benefits of Nigerian senators? What is the average salary of a senator in Nigeria? As for the Senate personnel cost, the consolidated amount for each senator salary per month in Nigeria, which was confirmed in 2018, comprises 700,000 Naira. This figure is just a single salary and does not count the amount of money that is paid to the Nigerian senators for their supplementary benefits. As stated by mister Shehu Sani, the extra costs, which are allocated by the Nigerian government every month as well, comprise 13,500,000 Naira, besides the Nigeria senator salary in a month. Basically, this figure stands for general goods and non-personal services of senators. Shehu Sani did not specify on what particular services this money go, but as we know, Nigerian senators have the following benefits: Travel and transport (local and international travel and transport); Utilities (electricity charges, telephone charges, internet access charges, water rates); Materials and supplies (office stationeries/computer consumables, books, newspapers, magazines and periodicals, printing of non-security documents); Maintenance services (maintenance of motor vehicle/transport equipment, office furniture, IT equipments); Training (local and international training); Remedies and medical supplies; Insurance. If we make some calculations, one Nigerian senator earns more than 14 million Naira per month, which is 170,400,000 Naira annually. The amount of money needed for all the 109 senators turns out in a cosmic figure that might be hard to keep in mind. Moreover, if we compare it to the salaries of other government representatives from different countries, it is much more striking. We hope our article has satisfied your interest and let you have an idea of the amount of money that is spent annually and monthly on the Senate alone.

The Association of White Witches in Nigeria (AWWN) is asking the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 16 election, Atiku Abubakar, to avoid the mistake made by Goodluck Jonathan in 2015. The AWWN warned that Atiku must listen to ‘wise counsel’ if he must not give himself up for defeat like Jonathan did in 2015 which made him lose to Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The group expressed belief that Atiku can redeem Nigerians from hunger and poverty orchestrated by the bad economic policies of the present administration, but that he must hearken to words of wisdom. Daily Independent reports that the spokespersonn of the association, Okhue Iboi, who spoke in a telephone interview on Thursday, January 3, said Atiku has to undertake the assignment of visiting the church, mosque, and the witches’ association for special prayers if he must win. “These three spiritual places are keys in this year’s election. He has to go to these three places for special prayers to be offered on him. If he fails to do so and chooses to follow the way of Jonathan, then he should forget the presidency. “In 2015, we told President Jonathan the same thing, but he refused and we all know what happened after that. “Millions of Nigerians want Atiku to be the next president, but he has this assignment to undertake so that God can clear his way to win the election,” he said while disclosing that in their meeting which was held in Calabar, the Cross River state in the first week of December, 2018, it was clear that the gods favoured Atiku to be the next president of Nigeria, but on condition that he sought spiritual interventions. “Atiku will win Buhari with a landslide if he obeys this simple instruction,” he said. Iboi also tasked the Independent National Elect0ral Commission (INEC) to resist any pressure and refrain from any clandestine plan to manipulate the results of the election in favour of a particular candidate. “Elections will be peaceful. But if INEC manipulates the result, there will be serious chaos in the country. INEC must be truly independent. INEC must be neutral so that Nigeria does not experience post-election crisis,” he said. He also said the PDP will lose the governorship election in Ogun state if the party did not give the governorship ticket to Senator Buruji Kashamu. “Kashamu is destined to win Ogun state for PDP, but if the party denies him the ticket, they will lose. Kashamu has the grace of followership. People like him,” he said.
