Public Office Holders’ Salaries To Be Reviewed by RMAFC

Date:

The Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission has started consulting with stakeholders with a view to reviewe the salaries of public office holders. The agency said it will engage stakeholders in a discussion to determine if the remuneration for political, public and judicial officeholders should be increased or not.

However, in a telephone conversation with the commission’s spokesperson, Nwachukwu Christian, he said Nigerians should disregard any news claiming the agency was planning to increase the salaries of political, public and judicial office holders.

He said: “The process involves consultation. It is not what one person will do. We must consult critical stakeholders like civil society organisations. We must consult even traditional rulers. It will take us across the whole federation to gather input on it. At the end of the whole thing, what we gather will decide if the review will be upward or downward.

“We have not carried out the exercise. We are in the process, and this process must be carried out and completed and will give us the result whether it is going to be up or down. Nobody can come up now to say RMAFC has reviewed upward the salaries of political and judicial officers. That’s false. Until the process is concluded before we can decide on the review.

“In the course of the process, people will air their views on where the country is now. Nigerians must make their input because it is their money that will be used to pay these officeholders. So, we have to consider their inputs.”
