President of the Eighth Senate, Bukola Saraki, has asked the National Assembly management to distribute his severance allowance to the families of three victims of the insurgency in the North-East geopolitical zone being perpetrated by Boko Haram.
The amount could not be established as of the time of filing this report because the Director of Information, Rawlings Agada, did not respond to calls made to his phone and he had yet to reply the text message sent to him.
Saraki, in a statement by his Special Adviser (Media and Publicity), Yusuph Olaniyonu, specifically asked Mohammed Sani-Omolori-led management of the federal parliament to ensure that it supports the families of Leah Sharibu with part of the money.
Also to benefit from the money are children of late members of the eighth Senate who may require financial assistance in furtherance of their education as a trust fund is to be established by the management of the National Assembly for the purpose.
The remaining 40 per cent, according to the statement, should be used by the National Assembly management to set up a trust fund that will assist children of deceased members of the eighth Senate who are in financial need for their education.
