It was News to me, and too complex for me to understand that Nigerian senators are in any form of hardship.
At the time, around 2016, I listened to the public reading of the country's budget where there was an allocation (allowance)designated to senators for 'hardship'.
I dwelt on this matter for quite a while, thinking about what kind of hardship a Nigerian Senator might have in comparison to the reality of the rest of the citizens. I still have not figured this out. I know, however, that we often think of them as people that move the allowances anyway - in large portions-, wether allocated to them officially or not.
While this happens, we the citizens remain in hardship. Who is there to save us?!
