What Tinubu say about salaries increment for Elected Office Holders
Bola Ahmed Tinubu
Office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has reacted to the trending news that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has approved the increment of salaries of elected office holders by 114%.

The government, in a released statement debunked the claim, stating that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has only not increased the purported salaries of the elected officials, ni file relating to such has ever landed on the table of the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Federal government's reactions come in parts "We have followed with consternation the viral story of the purported 114% increase internet the salary of the , Vice President, elected Federal and State political office holders and judicial officers.

"We state without any equivocation that President Bola Tinubu has not approved any salary increase, and no such proposal has been brought before him for consideration.

"While we recognise that it is within the constitutional remit of Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission to propose and fix salaries and allowances of political office holders and Judicial Officers, such can not come to effect until it has equally been considered and approved by the President.

"It is important to note that RMAFC, through its Public Relations Manager, has responded to this fake story being circulated and has already set the record straight.

"However, that this unfounded story gained prominence on social media and in a section of mainstream media, again, brings to the fore the danger fake news poses to the society and our national well-being. The misinformation was, obviously, contrived to create ill-will for the new administration, slow down the upward momentum and massive goodwill the Tinubu-led administration is currently enjoying among Nigerians as a result of its fast paced, dynamic and progressive policies.

"It is important to reiterate to journalists, media managers, and members of the public that stories on government activities and policy issues that do not emanate from approved official communication channels should be ignored.

"Media practitioners are enjoined to, at all times, cross-check their stories to ensure accurate reportage, which is the hallmark of responsible journalism.
