Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige has stated that the Federal government was not reviewing salaries but some allowances.
In a statement issued by the Ministry’s Spokesperson, Olajide Oshundun on Friday, the Minister clarified that the increase was on the remunerations and emoluments of the affected workers especially the civil servants.
“The Presidential Committee on Salaries (PCS) through the Office of the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (OSGF) received recommendations for review of allowances of many Ministries, Departments and Agencies of Government. Because salary component is not being reviewed for now by the committee, it addressed the allowances component of the requests including the peculiar allowance for Federal Civil Servants amongst others.
“In Labour parlance as par payment for compensation for work done, remuneration or emolument is made up of salary component and earned allowance component.
“The Federal Government through the PCS could not have engaged on the review of salaries without involving the workers through their unions, represented by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC).”
The Minister added that the committee was optimistic that Mr President will receive and consider the recommendations before the end of the first quarter in 2023.
