OPM, in a statement, said this erroneous report was contained in an article captioned ‘Jordon supports salary top up for President, other officials’ that appeared in the March 17 edition of the newspaper.

OPM explained that “the PM’s salary is taxable and amounts to a take- home pay that is far less than the tax-free package which the former Attorney General received”.

OPM notes that the opinions expressed by the Finance Minister are directed at tax-free salaries for the President, the Chancellor, the Chief Justice and the Attorney-General to effect equity before the laws as regards existing requirement that all salary earners ought to pay income taxes.
