National Confab Delegate Blasts Pastor Bakare & Femi Falana For Rejecting Allowance

A delegate to the on-going National Conference, Moshood Salvador, has blasted Pastor Tunde Bakare and a human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, for rejecting their own share of the "jumbo pay" at the conference.

 He said he has engaged professors and other professionals to facilitate his work at the conference and asked why anyone would expect him to reject such "small money" that doesn't even mean anything to him. He had also dismissed the decision of Pastor Bakare and Falana to donate their own allowance to charity.
 Moshood Salvador, a former member of the House of Reps, insisted that Pastor Bakare, Femi Falana and any other person who supported their view that the money is too much is just playing to the gallery... He claimed that since the conference started, he had spent more than the bi-weekly allowance of N1.5m for his aides and researchers. Speaking on Wednesday in Lagos, during the public presentation of his memoir titled: “Hon. Moshood Salvador’s Memoir: Beyond the Dream,” he said to him such money is not big. “It is only when we don’t love this nation that we will be talking about money.
 On the issue of jumbo pay, I don’t know anything about it. Those saying they are going to donate that allowance to charity are only playing to the gallery. “I have rented an apartment of about N800,000 a month. I have employed the services of a media team, researchers and they are there in my private office in Wuse, Abuja, conducting research and surfing the web to get information."
 What I can see here is that those who have billions in Nigeria don't know that N12m is BIG money to others.
