Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo State, has revealed that he only earns paltry N650,000 monthly.
Makinde made the revelation when he announced his intention to improve salaries of civil servants in the state, while addressing the newly sworn-in commissioners in Ibadan.
He urged them to key into his vision of bringing massive development to the state, adding that it would not be business as usual.
The governor noted that improved salaries will reduce temptation to commit financial crimes among civil servants.
He said: “I actually thought my salary was going to be like N3 or 4 million monthly, but when I came in, I discovered that my salary is only N650,000, which is less than $2, 000. And then, I have a budget of over $500 million.”
