The House of Representatives member-elect, representing #Gaya,/Ajingi/Albasu federal constituency, #Abdullahi Mahmud Gaya, has called on all those elected at the March 28 presidential and #National Assembly polls to take a 50% pay-cut when the new administration begins in May 29, 2015.
Making his opinion known to reporters on Monday May 4, 2015 in Kano, the #lawmaker stressed that this was a time when those elected to serve the country need to make sacrifices for the common good of al”
“In my opinion I think it will be better for all the elected representatives, beginning from Mr #President to members of parliament, to Ministers, other Advisors and special assistants to demonstrate understanding and sacrifice agree to 50% salary cut,” Gaya said.
“Since we believe the country needs positive change we should therefore accept it as such. The slash in the expenses should continue till when our dear nation gets to execute capital projects. May be from the time we were inaugurated to another two years.”
To backup his opinions and make them more comprehended and verified, he cited the #budget structuring in #Kano state where over 75% went into #capital expenditure with 25% reserved for #recurrent expenditure.
“In our budget in Kano, we spend 75% in capital expenditure while only 25% goes to recurrent spending,” Gaya highlighted.
“In Kano #state the public treasury is being guarded and guided jealously with care and accountability, which resulted into a disciplined fiscal responsibility. #Buhari and all other representatives should copy from Kano,”.
Gaya lamented and frowned at the budget structuring for the entire nation:
“As it is obtained now 75% of the national budget goes to recurrent expenditure and the remaining 25% goes to capital expenditure. We should not accept this if we really have the county at heart.”
