Shehu Sani, the Senator representing Kaduna Zcrnteal has called for the increase of Nigerian Prison staff salary to the same level as that of Nigeria Police.
Sani made the call in respect to the recent increase of salaries, allowances and pensions of Nigerian Police by the federal government.
Buhari on Monday while speaking with members of the Nigeria Police Service Commission and the leadership of the Nigeria Police Force who were on a “Thank You” visit to the State House, approved Rank Salary Structure Adjustment of Police.
The Kaduna lawmaker pointed out that neglect of equal increase in Prisons Service salary will hinder the expected effect of increase in Police salary.
According to him, both arms compliment each other in law enforcement, hence calls for equal pay.
Sani on his Twitter page wrote: “The salaries of the staff of the Nigerian Prisons should be increased to the same level with that of the police.
“Without harmonizing the two,the aim of the one sided increase will be defeated.
“The Police and the Prisons institutionally compliment each other in law enforcement.”
