Nigerian senators earn more than US President, UK Prime Minister’ – Ex-Daily Times editor

Oyebola said a Nigerian Senator earns $1.7m a year, which is far higher than the $400,000 yearly income of the United States’ President.

Oyebola had said, “It is also strange, unthinkable and very disheartening that a senator, not minding the grinding poverty of Nigerians, earns $1.7m a year, which is far higher than the $400,000 yearly income of the United States’ President, whose stupendous country is the richest in the world.
