Allow uniformity in salaries, workers’ allowances – Akeredolu tells Buhari

The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu yesterday, lamented over the current practice of fixing salaries and allowances of public officials by the Federal Government, to reflect uniformity across the country.

VANGUARD reports that Akeredolu said this at the opening of a one-day South-West Zonal Public Hearing on the Review of Remuneration Package for the Political, Public, and Judicial Office Holders in the country, organized by the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, RMFAC.Information Guide Nigeria

Akeredolu, who was represented by his deputy, Lucky Aiyedatiwa said: “This practice is unacceptable in a polity which prides itself as federal. The logic of mopping up revenues accruable to states and local governments into a general pool for sharing, following some Federal Government formulas, is anachronistic and retrogressive.

“Let every State determine the salaries and allowances of its officials. Let the states control their resources and pay taxes to the centre.JAMB portal

“The appropriation of the sources of wealth of various States by agencies of the Federal Government is the fundamental reason for retardation.
