  1. Until when nigeria's salary structure is harmonised among fed, state and LG's and between all agencies, we continue to have a gap in terms of delivery. Tell me who is not important among all cadres. We all need each other. I can't comprehend a certificate holder in health earning more than a masters holder in admin or Engineering. This is madness
