Members Of The House Of Representatives’ Monthly/Annual Salary 


A member of the House of Representatives’ pay is typically established by the Revenue Mobilization, Allocation, and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC), which is in charge of awarding allowances and generations to public officeholders. Salaries do not follow the same pattern all year since numerous factors such as the economic environment and cost of living might influence the amount given to members. 


However, based on many studies, here is a glimpse into how House of Representatives members are compensated: 


A member of the House of Representatives earns around NGN9.6 million per year, which equates to N800,000 naira each month. However, individuals sometimes confuse the office operating costs of each member of the household with the wage. The monthly office operating costs for one member are typically around 8.5 million naira. 


These salaries and prices, however, may change over time since RMAFC continuously examines and adjusts the salary package.
