Call Rights Activist Sagay To Order, Nigerian Senate Tells Buhari

The Senate has accused the chairman of the Presidential Action Committee on Anti-Corruption, Professor Itse Sagay, of spreading falsehoods about the National Assembly. The latest wrangling followed a claim by Sagay that the salary of a Nigerian senator was U.S.$1.7 million per annum, well above the U.S.$400,000 annual salary of President of the United States.
