Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) has denied reports that it approved the increment of salaries of political office-holders by 114 percent.
Christian Nwachukwu, Public Relations Officer of the commission in a statement, said President Bola Tinubu has not given approval for the increment of salaries of public servants.
He said until the president gives assent, it cannot take effect.
“No approval yet. There is no approval yet. I don’t know the source of that story. Everything is under the process. It has to come as a Bill for Mr President to assent,” he said.yy
“The President has not given assent. Until the President gives assent, you cannot take it as if it has taken effect. You know that. You are a journalist.
“I don’t want to be quoted wrongly. The President has not given assent to it. It is still under the process,” he added.
