My sincere advice and candid suggestion to the Federal Government of Nigeria goes thus:
A Senator of the Federal Republic earns Thirty Six Million Naira (#36,000,000:00) per month.
If this is divided into two (2) which is fifty percent (50%), the Senator collects Eighteen Million Naira (#18,000,000:00) per month and the remaining balance of #18,000,000:00 can be used to employ 200 Nigerians who will earn Ninety Thousand Naira (#90,000:00) per month.
200 people multiply by 109 Senators = 21,800 employees. This invariably means, 200 Nigerians can live comfortably on half of monthly income of just one Senator.
A Honourable Member of the Federal House of Representatives, earns Twenty Five Million Naira (#25,000,000:00) per month.
If this whooping amount is divided into two (2) which is also fifty percent (50%), a Honourable earns Twelve Million, Five Hundred Thousand Naira (#12.5m) per month.
The remaining balance of #12.5million can be used to employ 135 Nigerians who will earn Ninety Two Thousand, Five Hundred Naira (#92,500) per month.
135 Nigerians multiply by 360 Honourable Members in the Green Chamber (Federal House of Reps.) = 48,600 employees.
Meaning that, 135 Nigerians can live comfortably on half of a monthly income of just a Honourable Member.
By analogy, it means that, this present administration under President Muhammadu Buhari can actually employ 70,400 Nigerians that will earn #90,000 and #92,500 respectively, from the supposed reduction of monthly income of 109 Senators and 360 Honourable Members in Nigeria.
I advice that Same could go for States.
