Today, NIGERIA NEWS would be analysing the salaries, and renumerations of senators in Nigeria, with a special interest in the remuneration of the senate president, deputy senate president, the Senate chief whip, and the Senate deputy chief whip, the minority whip, and all committee chairmen.

It is an adduced fact that Nigerian senators are highest paid senators in the world.

Why do we say so? This is because Nigeria by her legal framework has adequately provided a standard remuneration for all political office holders, public officers and civil servants as enshrined in the stricto senso function of the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC).

In 2015, The Revenue Mobilisation Allocation And Fiscal Commission were tasked by the Buhari administration to make a candid review of the salaries and earnings of the political office holders as well as public servants.

In June 2015, The commission came out with a good structure analysis of the earnings all public office holders should collect. The review was in fact to be stricto senso adhered to by the federal, state and local governments.

It is no longer news however that many political office holders especially the senators live above their pay, and one way or the other corruptible raise extra funds to fuel their extravagant lifestyle.

Below is the detailed analysis of the salaries and earnings of Nigerian Senators.
