“Bukhari cannot raise the salary of the police, he did it in those years” – Minister of Labor Festus Keyamo.

Minister of State for Labor and Employment Festus Keimo said the ongoing #EndSARS protest shaking the country is turning into a massive rally.

He explained that some criminals mingled with the demonstrators to terrorize citizens and the police.

Kayamo reiterated that President Muhammadu Bukhari’s regime is committed to improving the welfare of police officers.

In response to one of the demands of #EndSARS protesters who want to raise salaries for police officers across the country, Keiamo said the president had raised police salaries just two years ago.

He added that at the time, the federal government was unwilling to raise police salaries.

He said:

“The president has no authority to appear tomorrow and announce a new salary for the police. When you do this, you even trigger an industrial crisis because you have different sectors of society, doctors, government officials, soldiers and others will make new requests.

Last year we paid the minimum wage. Two years ago, it was President Bukhari who raised the salaries of the police. This was after intense training with an increase of almost 100%. The corporals and everyone who has returned home are smiling.

“For this you need to look at the national stock exchange. We are borrowing money right now, and so we are giving a lot of subsidies. ”

He stressed that reforming the Nigerian police is a process that will not happen overnight.
