Why Salaries Of Some Civil Servants Are Delayed – FG

Federal Government yesterday debunked reports making
round that salaries of civil servants have not been paid.
In a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the
Coordinating Minister for the Economy and Minister of
Finance, Paul Nwabuikwu, the Minister said the report was
false and baseless, saying that salaries of most civil servant
have been paid, while plans were on to ensure that the
outstanding are paid before the year end.
The Minister was reacting to a recent press reports issued
by a group called, the Association of Senior Civil Servants of
Nigeria, in which the group claimed that federal government
had not been able to pay thousands of civil servants their
October and November salaries.
The CME in the statement described the release as a
falsehood and distortions about the current status of the
payment of federal civil servants and urged the public to
disregard them.
‘‘The group is fast earning a reputation as a tool of political
groups ready to deploy scurrilous falsehood against the
policies and programmes of the Federal Government. It
clearly does not represent the interest of the vast majority of
hard working and professional civil servants.
‘‘Contrary to the group’s statement, it is absolutely untrue
that “government has not been able to pay thousands of civil
servants their October and November salaries”.
‘‘As can be confirmed, the overwhelming majority of civil
servants are getting their salaries regularly. The true
situation, as stated by the CME during the Presentation of
the 2015 Budget proposal on Wednesday is that there was a
delay in paying the salaries of some civil servants in some
ministries due to a technical glitch which affected the IPPIS
system through which payments are made,’’ the statement
stated.
According to the statement, the delays were also caused by
some MDAs using money set aside for salaries to pay
allowances without consultation with the Budget Office.
As CME has promised, the CME statement assured that the
issues would be resolved and all civil servants get paid their
salaries before the end of December.
