Labour leaders in Bauchi state have condemned the plan to review the salaries of public office holders and politicians in Nigeria by the Revenue Mobilisation Allocation and Fiscal Commission, saying that the plan is a misplacement of priority.

The Chairman said that at a time when most states in the country are unable to pay their workers with the recently approved National Minimum Wage of N30,000 there should not be any talk of salary increase for politicians. 

Comrade Sabi’u said the plan is ill timely considering the high cost of living for the masses, calling on the government to introduce policies that will ensure that the welfare of workers is given the needed attention.
