RMAFC reveals how much Buhari, Osinbajo, ministers earn annually

19 September 2016, 10:37

Abuja - The Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission has disclosed the total salary packages of President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, ministers, lawmakers and other political appointees, Punch reports.

Investigation showed that while RMAFC had completed work on the review of the emoluments of political office holders about November 2015, the new emoluments have not seen the light of the day due to the politics involved in the process.

As a result, key political office holders still earn the full packages they earned before the decision to reduce the earnings of political and judicial office holders.

The annualised salary and allowances of the president is N14 058 820, while that of the vice-president is N12 126 290.

President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo had announced their decision to take only 50 per cent of the salary and allowances approved for them, meaning that they take home N7 29 410 and N6 063 145 respectively.

However, most of the allowances and entitlements of the President and Vice-President are not monetised but fully provided by the state.

Meanwhile, other appointees, including ministers, advisers, permanent secretaries and INEC Resident Commissioners are entitled to 200 per cent of their annual basic salary for accommodation; 300 percent for furniture; 75 percent for vehicle maintenance and fuel; 25 percent for personal assistant; 75 percent for domestic staff; 45 percent for entertainment; 30 percent for utilities; 15 percent for newspapers, and 20 percent for monitoring according to Vanguard.

While the President and Vice President’s duty tours and estacode will be provided by government, other officers have fixed rates.

The estacode allowance per day for minister, SGF, Head of Service and Chairmen of Board is $1000 per night on foreign trip, member of constitutional bodies, $900 per night; special adviser and speech writer, $800 per night, while permanent secretary, director general and INEC electoral commissioner take $600 per night each on foreign trips
