Since 2015, the leadership of the 8th National Assembly has promised Nigerians that it would operate an open, transparent and accountable legislature.

Under the umbrella of #OpenNASS, Nigerians continue to demand for an open & accountable legislature. The 5 demands of the #OpenNASS campaign are as follows:
1. Make public details of the 2016 and 2017 budgets of the National Assembly;
2. Replace voice voting with e-voting so citizens can track how their legislators vote;
3. Maintain a functional website and make public plenary attendance records;
4. Work with the RMAFC to review and reduce allowances of legislators;
5. Provide an audit for the N1.15 trillion ($5.75 billion) NASS received over 10 years (2005 – 2014).

The spokesperson of the 7th Senate, Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia State) released his payslip in 2013. Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara (APC, Bauchi) has now released his payslip.

Really, who payslip epp?
Abdulmumin Jibrin (APC, Kano) has doubted the legitimacy of Dogara's payslip as he says it's less than what he earns.


What are our legislators really afraid of? All we are asking is, HOW DO YOU SPEND N115 BILLION??

They think they are taking us for a ride... Elections are around the corner!!

Our legislators are currently on recess till Tuesday, April 25th. NOW would be a great time to engage them on #OpenNASS.

Here are things you can do:
1. Get the contact details of your elected representative and CALL them.
Identify your elected representative by texting 'SYE' & Polling Unit Number (top left of your voter's card) to 20050. Example: SYE 24/10/07/03.
You can also search for them online.

3. Call the toll-free hotline NOW to sign the petition for the National Assembly to make public the details of its 2016 and 2017 budgets.
Be sure to engage your elected representatives through all the channels available. Activate your office of the citizen, let them know who is in charge - the power is in your hands!

Thank You!
