After an over two-hour meeting with the deputies of members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the National Chairman, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur Tuesday approved the sum of N350,000 each as allowance.

The approval of the allowance was to pacify the deputies over allegations of marginalisation and apparently carry them along in the administration of the party.

The deputies were at loggerheads with the members of NWC over approval of salaries for themselves without taking them into consideration.

The National Chairman of PDP is on monthly salary of N2 million, while the deputy national chairman is on N1.7million and the National Secretary is on N1.5 million, while other members of NWC are on N1.2 million per month.
