Senate Denies N100 Million Palliative Allegations, Cautions Against Reckless Statements

The Senate is urging Nigerians to refrain from making “reckless statements” and has refuted the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) allegations that senators received N100 million as palliative.

Yemi Adaramodu, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Media, expressed his concern on Friday’s episode of Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily and appealed to Nigerians for support in light of these accusations.

“There’s no smoke, there’s even no fire; maybe people just want to breed very artificial smoke nowadays. We have artificial intelligence (AI) on everything, so it is an artificial smoke,” he said.

“There’s nothing like that. Like we said, we are even sending an SOS to Nigerians to please save us from all this careless talk, careless allegations. But when there’s any discussion anywhere, some people will just construe it and just centre it on the National Assembly.”

Adaramodu underscored the vital role of the National Assembly in tackling issues that impact the lives of Nigerians, such as addressing the removal of fuel subsidies.

“Check government about their feelings on fuel subsidy removal; the first port of call is the National Assembly. Let’s welcome it; it is very good,” he added.

Regarding allegations that funds were allocated to the National Assembly inappropriately, Adaramodu clarified, “Every year, even level one officers in any ministry, department, or agency of government will go on leave, and they are entitled to annual leave bonuses.

“Teachers are entitled to an annual leave bonus, even in the private sector. I have worked with a private sector (company) before, and I was entitled to an annual leave bonus, and it was a percentage of my salary.”
