FG Civil Servants' November Salaries Delayed Over ‘Technical Glitch’
HoCSF, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan

Numerous employees at federal ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) have not received their November salaries, according to a report by TheCable.

A civil servant at the Federal Ministry of Labour and Employment, who preferred to remain anonymous, disclosed that some workers in their department have not been paid since October. The staff mentioned that they were informed that the government is facing financial constraints.

“Only a few members of staff have been paid half of their November salary while the previous two months are still outstanding,” the labour ministry worker said.

Some of the workers said they have received no explanation from the authorities regarding the reason for the delay.


Bawa Mokwa, director of press at the office of the accountant-general of the federation, said the delay in the payment of November salaries was due to a “glitch”.

Mokwa, who spoke on Tuesday via a phone call with TheCable, said the integrated personnel and payroll information system (IPPIS) unit, which is responsible for the payment, had technical issues.

The director of press said the issue had been sorted, assuring that all the workers would be paid.

“I just left the IPPIS office. It has been confirmed, the director in charge of the payment said they have done what they are supposed to do,” he told TheCable.

“It was a glitch and it has been settled today. All errors have also been corrected. You can quote me. All federal workers will receive their November salary tonight.”

TheCable had recently reported that the December salaries of over 5,000 federal civil servants may be delayed due to discrepancies in dates of first appointment and birth.

Tommy Okon, national president of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN), had said the union was working with the head of civil service of the federation to resolve the issues.
