The Future Salary Breakdown of Tinubu as Nigeria’s Next President
Bola Tinubu, one of the wealthiest politicians in Nigeria, is set to become the country’s next president. While he may already have a sizeable fortune, Tinubu is set to earn even more once he assumes office. In this article, we will take a closer look at his future salary breakdown.
For most employees, payday is their favourite time of the month. And it seems that the same applies to Nigeria’s future president, Bola Tinubu. However, while he may already have plenty of money, Tinubu’s pockets are set to get even deeper once he becomes president.
The Additional Benefits
While Tinubu’s salary may not sound like much, it is important to consider the additional benefits that come with the job. For example, the president is entitled to paid and unpaid annual allowances. This means that Tinubu could potentially earn even more money each year on top of his base salary.
In addition to the annual allowances, the president also receives hazard allowance. This is an extra amount of money that is given to individuals who work under dangerous conditions. However, it is unclear what would be considered dangerous or life-threatening about working at the heavily-guarded Aso Rock presidential complex.
The Travel Allowance
To ensure that the president doesn’t experience any financial hardship while out of office, he also receives a travel allowance. This allowance is worth ₦351,470 and is meant to cover the president’s expenses while travelling for personal reasons or on official government business.
As we can see, Tinubu is set to cash out big time once he becomes Nigeria’s next president. It’s no wonder why his opponents are against his candidacy. As always, Zikoko Citizen will continue to provide insightful explainers on politics, policies and governance for our readers.
