Someone please tell Dogara that #OpenNASS is not equal to #ShowMyPayslip hence Nigerians are not interested in his payslip but #OpenNASS

“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.” - Nasir El-Rufai, Governor Kaduna State


Background
  • Dogara first gave the challenge for El-Rufai and other state governors to make public how they spend their security votes before asking the National Assembly to #OpenNASS (read the full story here).
  • El-Rufia responded by doing so (read the story here).
  • Now Dogara has released his payslip for six months in reaction to El-Rufai's actions.
Our take on the matter 
  • Did I hear somebody say 'payslip?', 'shooooo'.
  • We want the full detailed budget of the National Assembly, that is what #OpenNASS means sir!
  • Are Nigerians British Embassy that you need to submit your payslip for Visa application?
Conclusion
  • It's either Speaker Dogara thinks Nigerians are fools or it was just an oversight on his part to release the payslips, he meant to release the detailed budget of the National Assembly. We will go with the latter for benefit of the doubt's sake. 
  • In the light of this, Speaker and Senate President, please heed the call of ALL Nigerians and #OpenNASS.
