The official salary of a House of Reps member is N800,000 – Hon. Karu reveals

Hon. Simon Karu, representing Kaltungo/Shongom federal constituency of Gombe State, has revealed  the official salary of each member of the House and how much they earn monthly.

The lawmaker, while speaking at an event to mark the country’s 60th Independence Day anniversary on Thursday in Abuja, said most of the money is channeled to constituents who ask for assistance.

“The official salary of a member, house of representatives, which I also receive monthly is N800,000. I told you I was going to say it; why don’t you wait for me to say it?

The office running cost of a member of the house of representatives is N8.5 million. Those of you who know, know that I said exactly what it is. The problem is what the constituents demand, and when you don’t meet up, they begin to call you names.

Just before I walked to the stage I received three emails from my constituents demanding money and jobs. When you don’t, it becomes an issue,” he said.
