Nigerians think in light of the other issues on the National Assembly floor, this welcome package is both unnecessary and wasteful.
Earlier today we reported that the incoming 9th Assembly members consisting of 469 members are to receive a welcome package of N4.68billion.
Well, Nigerians think that in light of the other issues on the National Assembly floor, this payday is both unnecessary and wasteful. See these tweets by other Nigerians:
OK. Can we now talk about the 9th Assembly Welcome Package?
Like, welcome to the Criminal World?

Daylight robbery in 9th National Assembly

If the 9th Assembly truly want to change how governance is conducted in Nigeria, it must first take a big cut in its salaries and benefits, make its budget open; then a cleansing can then commence.
Until then, I'm done with Nigeria's politics.

"9th National Assembly: 469 members to receive N4.68bn welcome package"
Things like this is what makes people think that becoming a legislator is a profession, instead of an opportunity to serve. What's welcome package???
