President Bola Tinubu has sought the consideration and approval of the Senate for the review of Salaries and Allowances of Judicial office-holders through a Bill, to reflect the current economic realities, among others.

Tinubu’s request was contained in a letter addressed to the President of the Senate, Godswill Akpiabio, which was read at plenary on Wednesday.

Tinubu, in the letter, said: “In accordance with the provisions of section 58, sub-Section two of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, I forward herein the Judicial Office Holders, Salaries and Allowances Bill 2024, for the kind consideration of the Senate.

“The Judicial Office Holders Salaries and Allowances Bill 2024 seeks to prescribe salaries and allowances and fringe benefits for judicial officials to end the prolonged stagnation in their remuneration and to reflect contemporary socioeconomic realities.”

Tinubu said the proposed legislation would establish a new legal framework for remuneration of judicial officials and would also ensure significant improvement in their welfare, capacity and independence of the judiciary.

“While I hope that the Judicial Office Holders Salaries and Allowances Bill 2024 will be carefully, yet expeditiously considered and passed by the Senate, please accept distinguished Senate President, and distinguished Senators, the assurances of my highest esteem,” Tinubu stated.
