Presidency disputes Increment in salary

 The Presidency disputes that the judiciary and political officeholders should get pay raises.


On Thursday, the Presidency refuted the claim that it had authorized an increase in the wages of judicial and political officials.

President Bola Tinubu’s Special Adviser for Special Duties, Communications, and Strategy, Dele Alake, provided this clarification.

Recall that a viral article claimed that the government had authorized a new payment structure to raise compensation for those in judicial and political positions.

“While we acknowledge that the Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission has the constitutional authority to propose and fix the salaries and allowances of political office holders and judicial officers, such measures cannot take effect until they have been considered and approved by the President.

It’s vital to mention that RMAFC replied to the false information being spread and clarified the situation through its public relations manager.

“However, the fact that this false narrative gained notoriety on social media but also in a segment of mainstream media highlights the harm that false news poses to society and our country’s well-being.

The deliberate disinformation, according to Tinubu, “was designed to sow discord for the new administration and to halt the upward momentum and enormous goodwill the Tinubu-led administration is currently enjoying among Nigerians as a result of its fast-paced, dynamic, and progressive policies.”

Alake emphasized to journalists, media executives, and the general public that information on government actions and policy matters not from authorized official channels should be disregarded.
