Senator Ben Murray-Bruce has called for the reduction of politician’s salaries.
He wrote on his facebook page;
“Nigeria has some of the highest paid politicians and some of the lowest paid teachers. Flip this equation and Nigeria will develop! On this World Teachers Day, I thank Nigeria’s teachers and urge that salaries of politicians be reduced so that teachers salary can be increased! Teachers are much more relevant to the progress of Nigeria than we politicians. A well paid teacher is a better teacher but is a well paid legislator a better legislator? My name is Ben Murray-Bruce and I just want to make commonsense!”
