Dogara Yakubu

The Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has released detail of his salary.

Dogara’s move was given as a statement of his commitment to transparency and accountability in governance, according to NAN.

From the payslip, the Speaker’s total pay per month is N402, 5303.37 but his net salary after deduction is N346,577.87.

The statement showed that Dogara’s basic salary is N206, 425.83, constituency, N175, 461.96 and recess N20, 642.58.

This came after Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai released details of his salary and challenged the national assembly to do same.

The Reps accused that El-Rufai did not publish his security votes as requited but the security budget of the state.

The Speaker had specifically urged El-Rufai and governors to disclose their security votes and also publish what they did with local government funds under their jurisdiction.
