The leadership of the National Assembly has dismissed as “outright falsehood” a claim credited to a group known as Citizen Action to Take Back Nigeria (CATBAN) in a report published by an online news portal, SaharaReporters, in which it was alleged that the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara with their deputies collected money from the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) as rent for their accommodations.

In a terse statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Senate President on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, the leadership of the National Assembly stated that though the four presiding officers are legally entitled to official accommodation, they have been living in their personal residences and do not get paid by any Federal Government agency.

“There is no truth to the claim by this group. In fact, during the preparation of the budget, the Senate President and Speaker directed the FCDA to remove the 10 billion Naira voted for the construction of their official residence to save cost. The current leadership of the National Assembly will not be part of any illegal payment to anybody,” Olaniyonu stated.
