The Presidency has directed ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government to produce lists of all their employees being owed salaries and allowances within seven days, so they could be paid immediately.
The directive was contained in a circular issued by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Mr. Danladi Kifasi, and made available to journalists on Tuesday in Abuja by the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria.
The Presidency directed the MDAs to ensure that such unpaid entitlement should be accurate, verifiable and contain the name, designation, status (serving or retired) and amount due to each officer.
“The correct information should reach the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation on or before Monday, September 21 2015,” the circular stated.
Secretary-General of ASCSN, Mr. Alade Lawal, praised President Muhammadu Buhari for bringing succour to public servants, who have been owed salaries and allowances for long.
