Uche Jombo, a popular Nigerian actress and movie producer has reacted to the recent reports that Nigerian senators earn ₦1.24 million hardship allowance.
The veteran actress, in her post via her verified Twitter handle on Wednesday, wondered what “hardship allowance” means.
For such a long time, Nigerians have kicked against the jumbo pay enjoyed by lawmakers in the country. The controversies surrounding lawmakers’ pay has been made worse by the secrecy shrouding it.
She said, “Nigerian Senators receiving 1.24 Million Naira Hardship allowance … What is Hardship allowance?”
Fuming at another prospect that a senator would take home every month, a whopping sum as hardship allowance may have stirred the actress’ scepticism.
