GROUNDBREAKING!!! Senator Shehu Sani Lands In Big Trouble, Faces Immediate Probe And Suspension For Crossing The Senate Red Line

Emerging report reveals that Senator Shehu Sani may be suspended from the Upper Legislative Chamber, for exposing the exact amount Senators receive as allowances.

Recall that Sani had in an interview with The News, revealed that he and his colleagues receive N13.5 million monthly as “running cost”, aside from an N700,000 monthly consolidated salary and allowances which they also receive.

Some Lawmakers who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the revelation by Sani has damaged the reputation of the Federal Legislature, thereby breaking the oath of secrecy.

The aggrieved Senators said some of their colleagues were already discreetly working out modalities to deal with the Kaduna Lawmaker.

The revelation has sparked widespread anger among Nigerians, who had always criticised the Lawmakers for arbitrarily allocating jumbo pay to themselves, at a time the country remained in dire need of funds for developmental projects.

The Lawmakers vowed to take necessary steps to make the next one year difficult for the Kaduna Senator.

“He has brought his useless activism to the Chamber, creating the impression that we are all thieves without telling Nigerians details of what the money is used for. There are always ways of dealing with characters like that. Just wait and see”, a Lawmaker said.

Part of the punishment the angry Lawmakers are considering, is to pressure the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to exclude Sani from subsequent ‘secret meetings’ of the Senate.

The Lawmakers are also weighing the option of recommending immediate probe. For them, Sani would have to explain why he turned himself to the Senate Spokesperson, speaking on behalf of others.

If adopted, Sani would be investigated by the Senate’s Ethics Committee, which shall recommend a punishment.
