With the recent am axing of wealth by the members of the national assembly, the need to make their sitting a part-time work has become imperative, anytime they have sitting they should come and legislate(deliberate) and have their sitting allowance after-which they should go back to their different professions until another sitting day. There is no doubt that the two chambers have been getting much from the coffers of government.This will equally check the brain drain as many people are now abandoning their professions to become politicians especially at the federal level where the main thing is happening.For God's sake is it not the same market that the common man demanding N18000 a month is making his own purchases?There are so many injustices in the land as senate spokesman Hon. Ayogu Eze puts it :let the cleansing be total and not selective? http://gblcareers.com

Supported.  Part-time legislation will certainly reduce cost and make our legislators less dependant on our resources.

Is it a full time job now. They attend to their bussiness and gather when they have legislative bussiness in the national assembly. Their job was nevar full time, they on their own made it look like full time because of the sitting and other allowances they collect.

cut the number of Senators and Reps by half.

 

 



The constititution made it full time but they have refused to visit that aspect in the on-going constitutional ammendment because of their selfishness.

You can only do that by reducing the number of senatorial zones and constituencies in the country and that will require ammendment of the constitution.

Part-time legislation is most ideal for the country.  Our legislators for now are doing nothing but sharing the national cake.  That is why they want to remain there for ever.

I quite agree with you, if it becomes part-time the salary must surely come down and allowances as well, cutting down the number of senators and house of rep. members by half as suggested by chris Ndu would mean to cut down the number of constituencies in various states of the federation which may not be feasible for now.Each state has three senatorial districts/zone.Lets's go for part-time for now.
