The pay cut trend is here to stay!
President Muhammadu Buhari will only receive 50% of his salary, the presidency announced Friday.
This move by Buhari was made known to the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation by the Permanent Secretary of the State House, Nebolisa Emodi.
“I write to forward the completed IPPIS registration form of Mr. President and to draw your kind attention to Mr. President’s directive that only 50% of his salary be paid to him,” the permanent secretary, Mr. Emodi, was quoted as saying in the letter.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has similarly given up half of his official remuneration.
