Provisional 25,000 naira increment now applies to all Federal workers – Femi Gbajabiamila
The Chief of Staff to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Femi Gbajabiamila, has announced that federal workers at all levels will get the sum of 25,000 naira as palliative to cushion the effect of the removal of fuel subsidy
Gbajabiamila made this announcement on Sunday after the Federal Government met with organised labour at the Aso Rock Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
“The 25,000 naira earlier announced by President Tinubu for low-grade federal workers as an intervention is now to cut across all levels of workers,” Gbajabiamila said.
The meeting at the instance of the Chief of Staff to the President, Femi Gbajabiamila, is being attended by some ministers.
Last Tuesday, the organised labour comprising the leaders of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) announced their decision to commence an indefinite strike on October 3.
