Federal Government Approves Salary Increment for Civil Servants

Date:

Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, says the Federal Government has approved a pay raise for civil servants in the country.

Stating this to newsmen, Ngige said the pay raise is a peculiar allowance for civil servants in view of the current economic reality.

According to Ngige, the money will help the government workers navigate through inflation, rising cost of living, hike in transportation fare, housing and electricity tariffs.

“The Federal Government is looking at giving people in the public service a pay raise to take care of the increased cost of living,” he said.

“In the Presidential Committee on Salaries, we have done something for the civil servants for those who are on Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure (CONPSS) and some corporations, MDAs that are on that CONPSS. CONPSS is the salary scale for civil servants.

“We put a percentage for the President to approve, we have approved it at our own committee level. We said it should take effect from January 1, 2023.”

According to the minister, the current administration has made provision for the increment of civil workers’ salaries in the 2023 budget.
