The Senate on Thursday, September 14, denied that the sum of N100 million has been allocated to members of the National Assembly as alleged by the Nigeria Labour Congress Nigeria, NLC.
The Senate also threatened to prosecute those who take delight in blackmailing lawmakers through spurious allegations.

The senate made this known in its reaction to the allegation of a purported allocation of N100 million to its members made by the leadership of the NLC, describing it as strange, ludicrous, and unthinkable.

In a statement from the office of the chairman of the Senate Committee on Media and Publicity, Yemi Adaramodu, the red chamber said there is no 100million for a legislator anywhere

The Senate said: “What do these negative characters want to gain from their lies and falsehood against the National Assembly? This is strange to us, very ludicrous and unthinkable.“There is no 100million for a legislator anywhere. From which budget is this coming from? How, where and when? This is another satanic ploy of a miserable gang of media and political dark angels, to bring the Nigerian parliament into disrepute and pitch the legislators against the Nigerian public.

“We believe that the public is aware that popular democracy is an anathema to some unpatriotic political mercenaries, hence their systemic blackmail of the parliament, which undoubtedly is the soul of democracy and sovereignty.

“We urge the public and especially, the Nigerian workers, to disregard these unscrupulous pontiffs. The legislators, who are chosen among the masses of the people, shall certainly be with the people and eternally for the people.

“The National Assembly shall not hesitate, henceforth to take constitutional and legal actions against these irreverent merchants of rumours and ill wills against Legislators. The National Assembly should not be taken as a political scapegoat.

“We don’t expect anything less from the NLC leadership, we only opined that they would place national interest above partisan nihilistic outbursts.

“If the Congress wishes to serve as the conscience of Nigerian workers, it must purge itself of catalytic political voyages that can truncate our democracy.
“We believe that Nigerians see this new unscrupulous advocacy as a comedy to entertain only the unsuspecting.”
