Niger Govt Offers To Pay Workers 70 Percent Of Their Monthly Salaries

Abubakar Sani Bello

Niger State Government has said that it will henceforth be paying its workers 70 per cent of their salaries as a result of a reduction in its federal allocation.

Secretary to the Niger State Government, Ahmed Ibrahim Matane, in a statement today, November 25, said that the reduction in salaries was not a slash but the state’s inability to meet 100 per cent salaries.

“What we discussed with the organized Labuor was that because of the recession, our FAAC allocation has dropped to a level where we would not be able to pay 100 percent of the salary.

“We called their attention to this; we opened our books in terms of how much we received, the existing commitments and what is left over.”

Matane said that there will be a meeting with Labour leaders tomorrow, November 26 to discuss the next steps to take.
