Buhari Must Increase Worker’s Salary – Tinubu
Bola Tinubu, former Governor of Lagos State, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to review salaries of public servants upwards.
Tinubu, a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, said the review of public servants salaries will help to reduce temptation.
He said this at the Old Banquet Hall of the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja at the presentation of a book titled “Making Steady, Sustainable Progress” written by the Presidential Media Team on Thursday.
Tinubu also noted that Buhari’s fight against corruption is far from won.
He said, “I would be lying if I say the war against large-scale corruption has been won. It has not. It will take time and countless swings of the axe to fall such a deeply rooted tree. But try we must. This is what the president is doing.
“Gone are the times when a minister can pilfer billions of dollars as easy as plucking a piece of candy from the table.”
He added that the president must “review the salaries of public servants and create universal credits for our people to reduce temptation.”
