Nigerian governor slashes salaries of political appointees by 50 percent

Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State has slashed the salaries of senior political appointees by 50 per cent.

Makinde, who disclosed this on Friday during the Workers’ Day celebration held at the Labour House in Ibadan, said this was to ensure the economic safety of other workers in the state.

The governor also said that he had already secured the cooperation of the legislators to take a 30 per cent cut off their monthly allocations.

He commended the workers for their understanding in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The governor said that it was not only the health workers leading the charge on COVID-19, but volunteers from other sectors working to curtail the virus in the state.
