Tinubu’s government to stop salary of 5000 Nigerian workers, gives reason

The Federal Government under President Bola Ahmed Tinubu might not pay the December salary of no fewer than 5,000 federal civil servants who have discrepancies in their dates of first appointment and dates of birth.

The National President, Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, Tommy Okon, made this known while addressing journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, November 21, 2023.

Okon, however, said the union was working with the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation and it has forwarded the names of the affected workers to their Directors of Human Resources for confirmation.

The ASCSN President said 2,772 workers have been successfully restored back to the payroll of the Federal Government after concluding their online and physical verification exercise.

He called on the federal government to expedite and conclude actions to ensure that December salary of the civil servants, who are undergoing different exercises to be reintegrated into the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS), is not delayed.

Okon urged members of ASCSN who are affected by the reintegration process to exercise patience, promising that the union was doing everything within the ambit of the law to ensure that the issues are resolved expeditiously.

His statement reads; “The physical verification exercise of the ‘17,000’ Core Civil Servants who were delisted from the Integrated Personnel and Payroll Information System (IPPIS) was concluded in October, 2023 and those involved were in the high spirit waiting for their monthly salary which was stopped since September, 2023 to be restored.

“As of today, only those who had earlier completed their verification exercise but were mistakenly delisted have had their salaries restored while 5,000 of civil servants still have discrepancies on their date of First Appointment and date of birth.

“However, effort is been made by the HOSF to ensure that those cleared will get their salaries for December, 2023 including the arrears from September.

“We appeal to the Federal Government through the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation to expedite action to ensure that the salary of December is not delayed.”
