Lawan made the disclosure when members of the Senators’ Forum paid him a courtesy visit in his office in Abuja on Tuesday.
While further disregarding the jumbo pay issue, he revealed that his monthly salary as a lawmaker and that of his colleagues was N750,000.
“What I want to emphasize here is that I never believed that there is anything called Jombo pay to the national assembly.
“The National Assembly members both the Senate and the House receive what is their salaries and I receive N750,000 as my salary.
“But I need to function as a senator, my office needs to be properly funded,” he said.
