Must read

The Federal Government has said Medical Doctors, University Lecturers, Nurses, non-academic staff in tertiary institutions, the police, the armed forces among others would not benefit from the new 40 per cent salary increment.

The National Salaries Income and Wages Commission headed by Ekpo Nta made this known in a memo obtained by the Punch Newspaper on Saturday.

Ekpo clarified that only 144,766 staff members of the federal civil service under the CONPSS salary structure would be paid.

This implies that other workers under the employment of the Federal Government but operating under different salary structures will not benefit.

For instance, university workers, who are under the Consolidated University Academic Salary Structure, and medical doctors, who work for the Federal Government, will also not benefit from the pay rise as they are under the Consolidated Medical Salary Scale.

Other categories of federal workers who will not benefit from the peculiar allowance are nurses, non-academic workers in tertiary institutions, the police and members of the armed forces, among others.

Ekpo said in a memo addressed to the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Zainab Ahmed, which was sighted by our correspondent on Saturday, “I refer to my letter No. SWC/S/04/S,651/11/271 dated 24th of February, 2023 and the conclusions of the 11th meeting of the Presidential Committee on Salaries held on 7th of March, 2023 on the above-mentioned subject and convey approval for the Federal Ministry of Finance, Budget and National Planning to implement the peculiar allowance attached herewith for staff on the Consolidated Public Service Salary Structure.”

“This approval takes effect from 1st of January, 2023 and the estimated sum of seventy nine billion, three hundred and seventy-three million, three hundred and forty thousand, nine hundred and fifty-nine Naira (N79,373,340,959.00) per annum required to implement it for the 144,766 staff on CONPSS will be funded from the treasury.
