President of Nigeria’s Second Republic (1979-1983) Shehu Shagari’s annual salary was N30,000.00, and Vice-Presidant Alex Ekwueme-N24,000.
This was in 1980. 36 years after, the president and VP earn more than 10000 times that amount. See below
The president takes home N14, 058, 820.00 (allowances included), while VP is paid N12, 126,290.00 annually. Quite a long way from the 30k per annum salary, huh?
