CJN Earns Less Than The Court Registrar – Retired Justice, Dattijo

The retired Supreme Court Justice, Musa Dattijo Muhammad says, Chief Registrar of the Supreme Court earns more than the Justices.

He disclosed this on Friday in Abuja at a valedictory court session held in his honour.

“The monthly salary of the apex court Registrar stood at N1.2 million while Justices get N751,000, representing a 37.4 per cent disparity.

” The Chief Justice of Nigeria, Olukayode Ariwoola, is receiving only N400,000 plus monthly salary, which is 66.7 per cent less when compared to the N1.2 million monthly take-home of the Supreme Court Registrar,” he said.

Mohammed decried why Justices’ salaries decreased despite added responsibility.

“That the unjust and embarrassing salary difference between the justices and the Chief Registrar still abides remains intriguing, to say the least,” he added.
