    FG workers threaten strike over unpaid salary arrears

    LAGOS — FEDERAL senior
    civil servants have threatened to down tools over unpaid salary arrears,
     appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to direct immediate payment of
    their backlog of salaries and allowances. The workers said their
    patience had been overstretched.

    Speaking through their umbrella body, the Association of Senior Civil
    Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, the workers said the current state of
    affairs in the country, where sufferings had been lifted to a
    frightening level, was the time to settle the  arrears to calm all
    frayed nerves and restore normalcy in the system.

    Addressing delegates at ASCSN National Delegates Conference, NDC, in
    Abeokuta, Ogun State, outgoing President of the body, Mr. Bobboi
    Kaigama, said: “You will recall that in one of our correspondences to
    President Buhari before his inauguration, we did set out an agenda for
    him towards moving the nation forward.

    “One of the items on the agenda is the settlement of all outstanding
    salaries and allowances owed workers throughout the federation.  When
    the issue of bailout was, therefore, announced by the government, we
    heaved a sigh of relief thinking the arrangement will cover public
    officers in the various Ministries Departments and Agencies, MDAs, both
    at the federal and state levels.”
