Senator Shehu Sani has reacted to reports that the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) will be increasing the salaries of politicians, judicial and public office holders, by 114 percent.

RMAFC chairman, Muhammad Shehu, who was represented by Rakiya Tanko-Ayuba, a federal commissioner, disclosed this during the presentation of reviewed remuneration package report to Governor Nasir Idris of Kebbi state.

The news came as a rude shock to many as Nigerians are still battling with the economic hardship the removal of the petrol subsidy came with.

Reacting to the reports of the salary increase for politicians, Sani in a tweet posted said increasing the salaries of the poor at a time like this should be of more priority than the salaries of the elites.

As a former National Assembly member, he said with the increment, federal legislators will earn about N2 million as salary.

‘’ Raising the minimum wage of poor workers should come first before that of the elites holding public offices.With this 114% increase,a Federal Legislator will earn about N2million monthly salary and N25million monthly running cost for his http://office. Money derived from the removal of subsidy should be spent wisely.” Sani wrote on Twitter.
