Salaries, allowances and perks of Commissioners and Special Advisers in Lagos State

Check out what commissioners in Lagos State earn monthly. An encomium magazine report.

The monthly total emolument of a commissioner or special adviser is N520, 878.
This includes: domestic allowances - N78, 131, entertainment allowance - N31, 252, newspaper allowance - N15, 626, personal assistant allowance - N26, 046, rent allowance - N156, 263, utility allowance - N31, 252, vehicle maintenance allowance - N78, 131, and basic salary of N104, 175.


This doesn't include monthly N500, 000 running cost for their offices. When they travel abroad for official assignment, they collect as much as $2, 000 per week. It may be more, depending on destination and number of days to be spent.

Commissioners and special advisers have two official cars. A Toyota Prado and Toyota Camry 2009. And when they go out of the state to represent the governor at event, they get as much as N150, 000 to N200, 000 as transport and accommodation claims on such trips.

Doesn't seem like much...so I'm guessing there are other perks they don't make public.

    Hmmm.

    1. Lower than I expected
    2. Higher than they deserve
    3. I like how politicians always keep the basic salary Low to disguise the complete picture.

    Congrats to Biyi and Enitan on their new jobs. UNILAG boys are repping!

    The perks they get from contracts and patronage are something else.

    Politicians like any civil servant including a president or prime minister do not earn a great deal but are however, compensated with fantastic pension scheme. Then, there are the opportunities afterwards.
