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.”
