The lawmaker speaking in a radio interview in his constituency said the legislators were coerced into donating their two months salaries.
Lado who represents Guevara/Suleja/Tafa Federal Constituency of Niger state said despite the fact that he made the donation of his salary against his wish, he still helps his constituents who are in desperate need.
Suleja stated that most of the lawmakers were not happy to donate their two months salaries.
“Yes, we donated the salaries because of the progress of Nigeria but I’m assuring you, most of us were not happy about it, that’s the truth,” he said.
“It’s just the way you see workers not happy about salary deductions without their consent.”
Legit.ng also reported that Abdulmumin Jibrin has revealed that he will be sharing ideas and tips with young people who intend to join politics and build a career in governance.
The former Kano lawmaker disclosed this on his official social media pages on Wednesday, April 15, explained that he would be giving tricks that politicians will not share.
It would be recalled that Jibirin who used to represent Kiru/Bebeji federal constituency in Kano state lost his seat to a rival from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Jibrin who has chaired several committees on finance and co-chaired a number of parliamentary investigations added that he would be sharing his perspectives on the economy post COVID-19.
He went on to explain that everyone one way or the other will be affected by the global pandemic as we need to prepare adequately.
