Governors shouldn’t earn same salary

Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari, has said that Governors should not be earning the same salary.

Masari explained that this is because some states have the financial capacity to pay big, while those with smaller income cannot afford to pay big salaries.

“I, as a governor, I should not be earning the same thing as the governor of Lagos because his revenue base is different from mine.

“The revenue base in Kano is higher than mine. These are the areas we really need to look at and address,” he told reporters in Katsina.

Masari also expressed support for devolution of power to the states, but claimed he does not understand what restructuring, as being advocated by some Nigerians, means.
