Meanwhile, the development is coming 24 hours after governor of Kaduna state, Mallam Nasir el Rufai, published the breakdown of his security vote among other items.
The Kaduna state governor had also called on principal officers of the National Assembly to follow suit.
In his words, “Governor Nasir El-Rufai would like to reiterate his call for the NASS leadership to do the same and disclose the details of the National Assembly budget, and the salaries and allowances of its leadership.
“The call to #OpenNASS is not a personal one. It is one which the leadership of the national assembly owes to all Nigerians. It is therefore disingenuous for the speaker to use state government budgets as the excuse for the opacity of the NASS budget.
“There is no state government in Nigeria with a budget nearly as opaque as that of NASS. In March 2016, this national assembly, led by its chairman, promised to provide a detailed breakdown of the national assembly budget. Nigerians are waiting.” ,” he had said.
Heeding to the call of the Kaduna state governor, Dogara released his pay slips on Tuesday but failed to publish the breakdown of his security vote.
