The Niger House of Assembly has constituted a nine-man committee to investigate irregularity in payment of salary in order to fish out culprits.
The resolution by the lawmakers was raised under matters of urgent public importance.
The resolutions were presented by Mr Malik Bosso and Hajiya Binta Mamman, members representing Bosso and Gurara Constituencies respectively in Minna on Tuesday.
The Speaker of the House, Mr Abdullahi Bawa, said the Assembly mandated the Committee on Labour and Productivity and Finance to investigate irregularity in salary payment and recommend punishment for culprits.
Bawa also directed the Ministry of Finance to issue each member with treasury receipts with evidence of refund of overpayment of April salary.
Earlier, Bosso, said that members of the House of Assembly were paid double of their April salaries, saying that members were not paid the May salaries as a result of overpayment in April.
He said that the members were paid June salary with their entitled amount, while another salary was paid to them the following week after the June salary, which was a little above their entitled monthly salary.
The lawmaker said the irregularity was not limited to the members but including civil servants and public office holders.
Bosso said that this affected some civil servants not paid their salaries while some were overpaid.
He explained that the payment of salaries was the responsibility of the state Ministry of Finance and Office of the Head of Service.
He expressed concern that it had now shifted to the state Ministry of Tertiary Education.
Bosso said such action was a deliberate attempt to frustrate the efforts of the state government in getting the actual amount of its monthly wages.
He noted that it was the responsibility of the lawmakers to act urgently under Sections 128 and 129, Sub-section 1 and 2 of the constitution to fish out the culprits involved in the act of corruption.
In his contribution, Mr Ahmed Agwara, Member, representing Agwara Constituency, said the house should discharge its constitutional responsibility and handle the issue with all seriousness.
