Buhari and Osinbajo
Buhari and Osinbajo

Nigeria’s new president, Muhammadu Buhari, and his deputy, Yemi Osinbajo, will earn annual basic salaries of N3, 514, 705 and N3, 031, 572.50 respectively, according to the information on the website of the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission.

The RMAFC is statutorily empowered by Section 32 (d) of Part 1 of the Third Schedule of the Constitution to determine the remuneration appropriate for political office holders.

Apart from the salaries, the president is entitled to various regular allowances like: Hardship, 50 per cent of the basic salary – N1, 757, 350.50; consistency – 250 per cent, N8, 786, 762.50.

Other regular allowances like motor vehicle fuelling and maintenance, special assistant, personal assistant, domestic staff, entertainment, utilities, security and Newspapers and periodicals are to be provided by the government – not paid for.

Allowances like accommodation, furniture, and duty tour allowance (per night), estacode (per night) and medical allowances are also to be provided as requested.

The allowances are paid periodically, some monthly, a few once in four years. Duty Tour Allowance and Estacode depend on travels.

For instance, furniture allowance to other cadre of officials, like ministers and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, is given once in four years. The President and Vice President are not paid furniture allowance as they are provided for.

When all allowances payable each month are added, President Buhari will take home N1, 171,568.33 each month, and N14, 058, 820.00 yearly.

Vice President Osinbajo will receive N1, 010, 524. 17 monthly, and N12, 126,290.00 per annum.

Details of Allowances

The president’s severance gratuity is N10, 544, 115, that is 300 per cent of basic; he is entitled to a leave allowance of N351, 470. 50, (10 per cent of basic salary) and an optional motor vehicle loan of N14, 058, 820, at 400 per cent to be repaid before the expiration of the president’s tenure.

Mr. Osinbajo will also get allowances such as motor vehicle, feeding and maintenance, special assistant, personal assistant, domestic staff, entertainment utility, security, newspaper and periodicals.

While the number two man’s hardship, consistency, severance gratuity and leave allowance are at N1, 515, 786.25; N7, 578, 931.25; N9, 094, 717.50 and N303, 157.25 respectively.

He will also receive a motor vehicle loan at 400 per cent of his basic salary which is N12, 126, 290; to be repaid at the expiration of his tenure.

The salaries and allowances are drawn from the Consolidated Revenue Fund.

The current salary structure and allowances were fixed by the RMAFC in 2007.

Before the review, the basic annual salary of the then president, Olusegun Obasanjo, was N2,586,000 per annum, while that of his deputy, Atiku Abubakar was N1,938,000 the same as that of the Chief Justice of Nigeria and the Senate President, both heads of the judiciary and the legislature.

This was as a result of the review of the salary structure and associated allowances for the top federal public office holders earlier carried out by the National Salaries and Wages Commission.

This followed the review of the salary structure and associated allowances for the top federal public office holders earlier carried out by the National Salaries and Wages Commission.

That review, which took effect on May 1, 2000, was contained in a memo SWC.04/S.1/Vol.1V/186 dated May 15, 2000 and signed by G.P.O. Chikelu, the then Chairman of the Commission.

  • GEJ FOREVER

    NIGERIA is finished ……. Buhari’s salary is without limit by way of “other regular allowances are to be provided by government … not paid for” ……. this the real one-chance change of APC.

    No wonder Buhari is recruiting all his relatives into the Aso Rock jamboree to the extent that he brought back one strange boy from his recent trip to UK to come and eat ….. Nigeria is finished.

    • Abdul

      shut up, your brother jonathan and his criminal wife earned over N50million per month throughout the 6years he led.thieves.

    • Wähala

      @Deri Redeem…
      Shut-up dia! Did Dumbo ever allow his earnings to be made public? Has his drum-wife paid taxes on her illegally acquired wealth in Bayelsa State or her ghost salary as PermSec? What is Dumbo worth? He foolishly told a nation he doesn’t give a damn and that stealing is not corruption… have you seen the house he is still struggling to build in Otuoke after 6yrs of raiding our commonwealth? Shameless drunkards. Where did he hide all his salary and perks? Aborigine mumu!

      • Guguru

        Wahala,

        Think about this: Ngozi approved that $1 billion. Do you not think she is responsible for allowing $1 billion to be budgeted for feeding alone? Why did Ngozi not say a thing to Jonathan about such a hige amount of money for feeding alone? Why nail Jonathan and not Ngozi? Can Ngozi really claim good management
        of the economy when she approved $1 billion for presidential feeding?

    • Victor Daniel

      That strange boy as you implied, is HIS SON. Know what to write.

      • Wähala

        Ignore the near-naked aborigine, Deri… he is a career drunk who never thinks with a clear mind. Dumbo and his wife, Hippo budgeted N1bn/yr and invited all ND miscreants in this world to, “our-turn-to-schop” Presidency with fossil, Edwin Clark sharing the bounty. Dumbo’s children became so disgustingly obese they have been evacuated to the UK for medical attention before palm oil fat kills them. Biko ignore Deri, he has cobwebs in his brain. Everybody ignores a mad man!

      • hanafunwatcher

        don’t be so sure about that.

        • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

          If the strange boy is not Buhari’s son, maybe he is your father.

  • abbas

    14 million naira is not a whole lot of money for a president. That converts to $73,000, which many Registered nurse make more than. Moreover, Abuja is very expensive to live in. I wish that all the state governors and national assembly folks would be paid the same amount, and not steal money.

    • hanafunwatcher

      i believe it’s 17,000.

    • Uncle Gaga (Bruce Wayne)

      Some Nigerians practicing per diem in the US make $550 per hour. If they agree to work on holidays (Emergency Room) they can negotiate as much as $1200 per HOUR!!!!

      • Alamu

        $1200/hour or $1200/day?

  • christobel2010

    Good effort, but the Buhari I know will not accept that sort of money, you all wait and see.

    • hanafunwatcher

      hahahhaha 17,000 was it per year to be president? !!! He may as well volunteer to do it.. lol “An annual salary of N3,514,705 (US$17,500) should be considered reasonable,comparatively with $400,000(N80,000,000) President Obama earns annually and with President Buhari’s hatred for corruption, we can safely believe that will remain his take,provided he does not even cut his salary to half. It is a good day for Nigeria!……

  • Wähala

    The President is just one person as well as his VP and their salaries are not our problem, the RMAFC should also give us a detailed breakdown of Jumbo Pay… the obscene salaries and perks Legislators have kept a tight secret till date. Even with the hardships of fuel shortages, energy crises due to power supply dropping to less than 2000mw, pressure on Naira and the threat of hyper inflation, the NASS Cabal were practically forced to accept a meager N30bn cut from the N150bn they budgeted to swallow in 2015 alone! Buhari ati Osinbajo will not break our backs, thieves like David Mark et al, are the kingpins of corruption Nigerians need to deal with. That said, N14million is a lot of money to pay a man who gets every other thing free. Buhari lives a Spartan lifestyle and will certainly see it as windfall money, but I doubt that he will have other needs like that car loan nonsense as if he doesn’t roll around in a vehicke paid for by us as an ex-leader.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      El-Rufai and his deputy have cut their salaries by 50%,so they are leading by example.

      • akyn

        I am glad to read that your are wahalla are almost on the same page.

  • Benjamin Atumye Airebo

    Now we hav government n interesting political climate. Another gangsterism is d senate n d criminal Dave Mark.

  • Godfrey Etokebe

    Is this structure new or it is the same one that was practiced under GEJ?

    • Wähala

      Does that answer your question?

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        It does not !!

        This is exactly the same as in Jonathan’s time . THIS ANSWERS THE QUESTION !!

        • Godfrey Etokebe

          Thank you my brother.

        • Wähala

          Dumbo budgeted N1bn for feeding alone, lets see how much a bowl of tuwo costs us under Buhari. Besides, Dumbo stole N14million/hr for 6yrs if truly we are to break down his net worth today outside his authorized salary scale. You wan try?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Dear historian Wahala,

            Please concentrate on the “change” which we all expect .

          • hanafunwatcher

            he’s too busy dreaming about what he and his two idols F&P will abuse next

          • Guguru

            Wahala,

            Ngozi approved that $1 billion. Do you not think she is responsible for allowing $1 billion to be budgeted for feeding alone? Why nail Jonathan and not Ngozi? Can Ngozi really claim good management of the economy when she approved $1 billion for presidential feeding?

          • hanafunwatcher

            cry on big wing!

      • Godfrey Etokebe

        Where is the BOGUS salaries that APC was deceiving the people about?

        • Wähala

          This is not Dumbo’s tax declaration form, it is just the general structure used for public servants. First, ask your moron to declare his worth lets see if it matches the above laid-down scale for President beginning in 2000. Shikena!

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Henceforth,Jonathan is not part of the equation,Buhari is President and we expect change,I have informed you of the example set by El-Rufai and his deputy.

          • Wähala

            You did not inform me of anything, I wrote about Buhari flying coach on his return trip from London and El-Rufai taking a 50% salary reduction… all before you even woke up to reality. It’s on SR, go there and enrich your mind. BTW, have you read that Buhari and Osinbajo have declared their assets with the appropriate authority? Remember what Dumbo said when asked about his in a media chat… how about refreshing my mind, Oga Teacher?

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Yes Jonathan mishandled that affair of asset declaration.

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            We have not seen Buhari’s asset declaration yet. Do you know when we should be expecting it?

          • hanafunwatcher

            ask his wife, she runs the show because administratively hes “a mess”

          • Abiboss

            This salary scale is not bad at all for the president and Vice President because in the U.S they would have been under low income earners. The only problem I have with the politicians including former presidents is where did they get billions of naira. I think that should be addressed to move Nigeria forward. Like you said let all of them declare their assets for people of Naija to see how bad they have ruined their beloved country period.

          • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

            Well Jonathan was taunted and insulted for his salary,the same salary Buhari is about to start getting,however I do not want to jump the gun,maybe there will still be reductions.

          • hanafunwatcher

            he turned it down.

    • Kuns

      @godfreyetokebe:disqus

      Jonathan’s example

      Goodluck Jonathan has no sense of country. His exposure limits his vision to villages and creeks.
      After Jonathan there will never be an Ijaw man or woman as president of Nigeria forever again.
      His atrocious example in office will remain a nightmare for all non-Ijaw people for centuries.

      • Godfrey Etokebe

        What has your response got to do with my question?

        • Kuns

          I am saying don’t cite Jonathan here again. He is a horrible word!!!

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            He remains your ex-president forever. LIVE WITH IT!!!!!

          • hanafunwatcher

            thats not what the other sites are saying..

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            What are they saying?

      • James

        Typical Nigerian ethnic bigotry. So one man makes a mess and his tribe are forever tainted. What about the Northern leaders who plundered billions from Nigeria’s treasury ? Oh wait…. I forgot they are one of the three big tribal areas so their transgressions are forgiven. No wonder minority tribes in Nigeria behave with indifference at times. As a young man, I remember people saying that there would never be an Ijaw president. God decreed differently. The fact is it is immaterial where a president comes from. What is important is what he or she will offer the country.

      • Godfrey Etokebe

        GEJ developed a template that has kept you alive today. I am sure that without GEJ, you would have been one of the first casualty of NIGERIA HARAM!!!!!!!

        • Guguru

          You mean a template of corruption and thuggery?

    • I Rep Buhari

      You think everyone is like your Jonathan abi who is not contented.

    • adediji esquire

      Yemi Osinbajo: Where is your Holy Spirit?

      I have been quiet since March 28th election. I wanted to see the real nature
      of Vice President-elect; Pastor Yemi Osinbajo. By now i have seen enough to
      conclude that there is no single drop of Holy Spirit in his soul.

      A man of truth will not remain in illegal association with Muhammadu Buhari
      on false oath over Wasc certificate especially after WAEC issued its statement
      to put all APC lies to rest, that Buhari never sat for 1961 WASC/Cambridge exam
      and Buhari never got any Wasc certificate he could have given to the Army.

      In other civilized countries, after WAEC issued that statement, Muhammadu Buhari would
      face the camera, apologize for his ‘improper conduct’, and resign rather than choose this
      ruffian and shameless stance.

      But what do you make of Yemi Osinbajo who says he is a Pastor and a Professor of Law?
      if a Bachelors degree lawyer; who is a Pastor, is so overtaken by greed he doesn’t know
      right from wrong, that should rise to some infamous conduct of a sort.

      • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

        I advise you to end the certificate stuff and face more relevant issues of opposition. Jonathan had the opportunity to push the certificate issue to the courts or use official contacts at home and abroad to produce evidence and make it public,BUT he did not.

        • hanafunwatcher

          he would need evidence to do that so he prob knows why he isn’t…let him babble on about it all he wants.

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            plus the fact that his phd is also questionable. OBJ said the pdp did a waiver for him in 2010 when it was apparent he never had a phd. You can trust OBJ, he will say it as it is. Jina could not even argue it with him. Meaning an admittance of guilt. Uniport could not confirm it by sending his thesis around for ewveryone to see. Believe me, Jona is just a mountain of lies.

          • hanafunwatcher

            lol. sorry, since you name your attys phds, no comprende…

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            OBJ lied. They had no case against GEJ. NO ONE NEEDS to be a PhD holder to rule Nigeria. Ask yourself this question:

            Why the WAIVER when it was not NECESSARY?

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            exactly what OBJ said in print and Jona never disputed it. I am sure you cant have a phd and somebody questions it!!!!!! Not even my BA will I allow anyone to question, because everything is well documented! A true phd holder will come out smoking! OBJ simply said people came forward that he never got it, they found it to be so, but since it was not the most basic requirement, they ignored it.

          • hanafunwatcher

            are you speaking of fake degrees or bought degrees from the universities you deal with? stop talking in riddles and SPIT it out..

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            my certi dey kampe. At least I know that I have that one, and no one can take it from me. I wouldnt even wait for any university to defend it for me. Why is jona waiting for any corrupt university to defend him? Even his thesis should have been deposited in asokoro for all to see.

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            funny enough uptil today no fellow doctoral student came out to defend him, while the (corrupt) university refuse to publish his thesis. To make matters worse there is no peer review paper produced based on his doctoral thesis. It is a can of worms my brother.

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            How many peer review paper are produced based on Nigeria’s PhDs?

            I checked the profile of some noise making professors in Nigeria once. I was surprised to see that none of them ever produced a ”FIRST TO PUBLISH” article. What do you expect from their protegees?

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            hopefully they will use this epoch to clean their acts.

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            When their leader has a QUESTIONABLE WASC? Another leader has a QUESTIONABLE TORONTO degree?

            TALK ANOTHER ONE!!!

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            a questionable wasc is far better than a stolen phd calling a whole university system and his presidency to question! It is a sad life for such a person whose wife thought to be a former bank manager who cannot even manage commoner english but speak only ‘na only you waka come’ diction! A wasted presidency theirs was!

          • Godfrey Etokebe

            On the contrary, EVERY OTHER CERTIFICATE that you may have achieved with a FALSE WASC while an ORIGINAL WASC was a pre-requisite is INVALID. I am not going into details of the implication. FIGURE THAT OUT FOR YOURSELF!!!!!

          • staaaaaaaaaaa

            you are hardly coherent anymore.

    IS THERE NO HONEST NIGERIAN AGAIN OR WHAT?

    Is an illegal president supposed to get any salary? I want the answer to that important question first,
    before i know what to say. I did not know before that 90% of Nigerians are now criminals, even the
    so-called professors of human rights, like Wole Soyinka. So, in Nigeria there is nobody in civil rights
    again or a constitutional lawyer that is honest and does not want to receive stolen money, and who
    can understand simple English as follows:

    • “A person shall NOT be qualified for election to the office
    of President if he has presented a forged certificate
    to the Independent National Electoral Commission”.

      The likes of achike cannot appreciate the problems from which the election and swearing in of President Buari saved us. Whether he has certificate or not, he is the choice of majority of Nigeria. I wonder what achike’s problem is. What had the PhD President achieved with his qualification? Look at how his last days in office ended – no electricity, no fuel! Nigerians wish to try the ‘no certificate’ president and those who voted for him are more than the likes of achike who did not. This is democracy where majority carries the day. Full stop. see more 0

    Excuse me,

    I have just Googled the phrase: “STAY PUT WITH A FORGER AND A PERJURER

    TO BE ABLE TO MAKE GOOD MONEY”. It is not in any chapter of the Holy Bible.

    Therefore, i must fully agree with @adediji who wrote below that there’s just simply

    “…no drop of holy spirit in Pastor Yemi Osinbajo – the Vice President“.

      No, no, no! Not so fast. Christians must not deny what they voted for.

            Let me entertain your infantile mind with comments from an immature personality and character who once used to be President. There is a 95 % chance that your response will be infantile, devoid of facts or any form of substantiation.

            “Initially, we handled it with kid gloves, but now we have decided to be
            a little more forceful because we must thrash out these terror groups.
            We must not allow it to continue to slow down economic growth in that
            part of the country. With the terror attacks in that part of the
            country, the rest of the country feel it because Nigerians live
            everywhere. In these other parts, there is always the fear that if you
            do not tackle it, it will infiltrate in these other parts. We will work
            together to ensure that terror attack is stamped out globally and in
            Nigeria, we are committed,” Mr. Jonathan stated.

    • TruthHurts

      You have lost your mind. Your type of people are the corrupt guys that should be behind bars because this is the types of supporters Buhari is surrounded with and who will advice and help him to rob Nigeria. You’re still going to be behind bars sooner or later.

    The likes of achike cannot appreciate the problems from which the election and swearing in of President Buari saved us. Whether he has certificate or not, he is the choice of majority of Nigeria. I wonder what achike’s problem is. What had the PhD President achieved with his qualification? Look at how his last days in office ended – no electricity, no fuel! Nigerians wish to try the ‘no certificate’ president and those who voted for him are more than the likes of achike who did not. This is democracy where majority carries the day. Full stop.

      Why are you worried about people who were once paid bloggers? Achike, Etokebe and Otile used to be paid to make noise on this forum. Once the PDP lost the elections their pay checks stopped immediately. So, what you are seeing are the words of very frustrated and angry people who are unemployed on the internet. So, they raini insults on the man, Buhari, who reflects all the pain they are now feeling as a result of a the loss of a pay check from the PDP. If you were unemployed would you be happy? Probably not. LOL.

    I have just Googled the phrase: “STAY PUT WITH A FORGER AND A PERJURER

      Muhammadu Buhari has no Wasc but was bearing false witness against

    This is addressed to my fellow Nigerians that keep yelping about WASC certificate.

    You have sworn that Buhari will Never win the election because he presented false certificate. He won!
    You have sworn that Buhari will NEVER get sworn in as President because of his forged certificate. He was sworn in.

    President Buhari is the commander in chief of Nigeria’s armed forces..and from all indications he is set to chiefly command!.but for some reason and like the fly that followed the corpse into the grave, you won’t let go of this certificate nonsense. It is about time someone ‘jump starts’ your dysfunctional brain.

    Please pardon me for asking this question, It is not my intention to make you look like a dumb ass, you have that task excellently covered on your own. but what certificate did President Buhari present to INEC? Did he in-fact present a certificate to INEC?

    From what I gathered, President Buhari said his certificate was with the Nigerian Army. To me, that sounds like he did not present any certificate to INEC. He simply directed INEC to the army for his certificate.
    If this is true,how can a certificate that was never presented by PRESIDENT Buhari be a forgery?

    Let us now analyze the breeze the blew and betrayed your chickens butt !
    Section 318, part 4 of the Nigerian constitution deals with definitions and interpretations, and look! It actually defines what is meant by “school certificate”!!!

    School Certificate or its equivalent” means-

    (b) education up to Secondary School Certificate level;OR
    (c) Primary Six School Leaving Certificate or its equivalent AND –
    (i) service in the public or private sector in the Federation in
    any capacity acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission
    for a minimum of ten years,AND
    (ii) attendance at courses and training in such institutions as may
    be acceptable to the Independent National Electoral Commission for
    periods totaling up to a minimum of one year, AND
    (iii) the ability to READ, WRITE, UNDERSTAND and COMMUNITY in the
    English Language to the satisfaction of the Independent National
    Electoral Commission; AND
    (d) ANY OTHER qualification acceptable by the Independent National Electoral Commission.”

    Take the words of the saged Dr. Alban to heart, “little knowledge is dangerous!”

      No mind them. They are valueless people that has nothing to contribute t the society. Did they ever ask for his certificate when he was sent to the war front ? . I guess not.. Its a cry for help from these dumb azz folks.

    • TruthHurts

      But your president can’t even speak good English. And you’re here defending the power hungry gun banging former military dictator who caused about 800 people to get killed when he lost in 2011. On my count, he’s not supposed to be there but I guess karma has a way of bringing people back to clean up their mess. So he’s on seat now buddy.

      The only reason he won’t be able to pull off some of his deadly stunts is cause he’s already much of a goner. At 72, he just doesn’t have it anymore. 4 years after that, you tell him to go chill out otherwise, that’ll be more like a casket ruling Nigeria. And I hope his boys Boko Haram stands down from henceforth.

      And don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.

    • TruthHurts

      By the way, lest you make Buhari look good, why did IBB overthrew him and imprisoned him ? Are you aware that Buhari has been involved in countless coups from the murder of Aguiyi Ironsi till the last one. Would you be surprised if it is finally proven that he’s behind Boko Haram ? Remember he’s a former Military General who’s been involved in countless coups and is well informed regarding military matters.

  • objective

    That is not too much really. I believe the president and the vice president will live within their legitimate allowances alone. But did I here them say obasanjo’s salary was N2.8million pa ? If it was so, then obasanjo must please show us the way, by taking us to the money doubler that was helping him to double his salary in such a way that his farm returned to such a highly mechanised farm within 8 years of collecting such salary, build bell university many houses within his otta farm and in Abeokuta and lives in extreme opulence now.

    He should please introduce us to that his money doubler.
