While speaking on his  RMFAC’s plan to review Judicial and political borders , the commissioner stated that some of the   o workers of Nigerian communications commission(NCC),Nigerian Maritime Administration and safety Agency (NIMASA),and central bank of Nigeria and other public officers collects more salary than the president of the country.

“The severance package of the president is just N10.5 million. This is after the president leaves office. You can imagine after spending four or eight years, that would be the only take-home. The salary of Mr President is not up to N1.3 million a month.

He  also said that no public officer should earn more than the president but most of the officers  in public sector earn twice, three time  or four times the president’s salary.

“There are people in the private sector and others in other public sectors that earn twice, three times or four times. No public servant should earn a salary bigger than Mr President. But we do have public servants that earn salaries bigger than Mr President, such as in the NCC, NIMASA, etc.”

My argument has always been that no public servant should earn allowances, severances, or salaries larger than the president of the federal republic of Nigeria, and I stand by it,” he said.
