Interesting questions

A decent pay level has been set for public officials by RMAFC.  When you add about 1000% in allowances (a thousand percent), this pay may even seem more-than-just-decent. 

Is it possible for an elected or appointed or staff official to increase personal take-home pay beyond legal level (say, by stealing or dealing?)  In particular, it is often repeated that constituency allowances, security votes, and lax accounting allow public money to unfairly enter private pockets.  Can you confirm this?

What steps have you taken to keep the level of take home pay fair and thus free up funds for the enjoyment of Nigerian society as a whole? 

Here is one place where one can seek answers: a relevant Senate Committee (Establishment).  Here are contacts for all the Committees of the Nigerian Senate.
