Popular Nigerian actress, and movie producer, Uche Jombo has taken to her social media platform to react to reports that Nigerian senators earn 1.24 million naira hardship allowance every month.
Taking to her Twitter account, the actress 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.
Fuming at another prospect that a senator would take home every month, a whopping sum as hardship allowance may have stirred the actress’ scepticism.
She tweeted; “Nigerian Senators receiving 1.24 Million Naira Hardship allowance … What is Hardship allowance?”
