Sagay fires back at Senate, says Nigerians buy their clothes

Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on Anti-Corruption, PACAC, Professor Itse Sagay, has responded to a statement against him by the Senate, in an exchange that has so been described as a war of words and a distraction from the real issues in the Senate.
Sagay mocked the Federal Lawmakers, saying Nigerians buy the clothes they wear and advised them to learn how to take criticisms in good faith.
“That is basically what I said. I spoke the truth. They have wardrobe allowance, in other words, we are the ones buying clothes for them to wear.
“When they arrived Abuja, were they naked? What is their problem?” he questioned.
The legal luminary had lamented that National Assembly allocated N125 billion to themselves alone this year and that while the United States President earns $400,000 per annum, a Nigerian senator earns over $1.7 million.
“The clear impression is created that Nigerian legislators are in office for themselves and not for the populace.”
“Not surprisingly, the National Assembly has not passed a single bill for the promotion of anti-corruption war since it commenced business in July 2015.”
In an obviously angry reaction, Senate Spokesperson, Sen. Aliyu Sabi  Abdullahi said anti corruption laws had been passed by the senate.
“Sagay could not even check the records before proclaiming that ‘the National Assembly has not passed a single bill for the promotion of anti-corruption war since it commenced business in July 2015,” he said
