Nigeria: Political officials’ salaries will not be increased – Presidency
By Ahmad Hadizat Omayoza, Mamos Nigeria
On Thursday, the Presidency stated that President Bola Tinubu has not authorized any pay increase for public officeholders.
Dele Alake, the Special Adviser to the President on Special Duties, Communication, and Strategy, issued a statement on Thursday that read, “We state without any equivocation that President Bola Tinubu has not approved any salary increase, and no such proposal has been brought before him for consideration.” The statement was signed by Alake.
“No presidential approval for salary increases for political office holders and judicial officers” is the title of the statement.
Following reports that the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation, and Fiscal Commission had approved a 114% increase in the salaries of elected Federal and State political office holders and judicial officers, the release on Thursday follows.
Alake made the following remark: “While we recognize that it is within the constitutional remit of the RMAFC to propose and fix salaries and allowances of political office holders and Judicial Officers, such such cannot come into effect until it has equally been considered and approved by the President.” He added that the RMAFC has the authority to do so.
The Administration which said RMAFC had exposed the story getting out and about supposed that the story was “invented to make malevolence for the new organization, dial back the vertical energy and monstrous generosity the Tinubu-drove organization is presently appreciating among Nigerians because of its speedy, dynamic and moderate arrangements.”
As a result, Alake advised that information about government activities and policy issues that does not come from official channels that have been approved should be ignored.

Start right away Start right away Editor’s Note On Wednesday, in a story titled “6 Things to Know About New EFCC Chairman,” we mentioned Mohammed Abba Umar as the Director of Operations of the Economic and Financial Crime Commission. Umar was given the task of taking over as head of the anti-graft agency after Abdulrasheed Bawa was suspended as chairman. Since then, we’ve learned that Umar is no longer the agency’s Director of Operations, so he’s not the right person to take over as Acting Chairman of the EFCC. Mr. Abdulkarim Chukkol is the agency’s Director of Operations and was given the task of succeeding Bawa as acting chairman. As a result, we apologize to the concerned officers for providing incorrect information.
