I earn N1.5m, Buhari earns N1.75m - Osinbajo

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo opened up on the issue of remuneration and minimum wages on Monday, adding that he earns N1.5 million while President Muhammadu Buhari earns N1.75 million monthly.
He said this at the end of the year forum organized by the statehouse press corps tagged, ‘Journalists and Retirement”.
Osinbajo said that journalism is not a profession one could really make a decent life, adding that most media outfit owners hardly pay workers’ salaries.

Calling on journalists to always update themselves so as to earn a better salary, he lamented that the entry into the profession was not well regulated.

He explained that many untrained people got into the profession and with the advent of social media, journalism had become highly unregulated.
Osinbajo recalled that the little he worked with a media outfit revealed that the workers were not being taken care of. He said, “I was not paid for the duration of time I worked there.”
He noted that the private sector did not even respect the issue of minimum wage, adding, “There are owners of media who are cheats. They do not pay. They just want to get something from nothing and it is not only applicable to journalism. In the legal profession, if you hear what a lawyer takes as salary, you will marvel.
