Cut ​your ​jumbo ​pay, Anglican Synod tells National Assembly members, others

From Nigeria-

The third session of the 11th Synod of the Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Akure, has called on members of the National Assembly to heed the call by Nigerians to cut their “jumbo” salaries and allowances to reduce the high cost of governance.

In a communiqué issued in Akure on Sunday at the end of the three-day session, the body of clerics also expressed concerns over the inability of the various state governments to pay workers’ salaries as a result of the current economic crisis.

The clerics urged the various governments to prioritise their activities and focus on liquidating the backlog of salaries owned their workers.
