The Senator representing Bayelsa East in the National Assembly, Ben Murray-Bruce, has revealed how he was resisted when he advocated for lower wages.

In a series of Tweets on Monday, Murray-Bruce said he told other senators that if Nigerian legislators earnedd higher than European legislators then Nigerian workers should be paid higher than European workers.

The federal lawmaker said: “From the first day I got to the Senate, I advocated for lower wages and allowances for public officials and a higher minimum wage for the Nigerian worker. I was resisted and made the personal decision to share my allowances with widows in my constituency.


“If we must pay our legislators higher than they pay European legislators then we must pay our workers higher than they pay European workers.‎”

Recall that Senator Shehu Sani stirred controversy last week when he disclosed the amount of money Senators earn as monthly allowances.
