Federal Civil Servants
Frustrated by false promises of federal government to pay promotion arrears, outstanding salaries, and other allowances owed federal officers, organised Labour under the auspices of Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) has resolved to shut down the Government unless these debts are paid on or before Monday 18th September 2017.
In a press statement issued in Lagos yesterday, ASCSN secretary-general, Comrade Alade Bashir Lawal, regretted that for more than two years, the federal government had been promising to pay federal officers their outstanding entitlements without doing so.
“It is rather unfortunate that the same federal government that has given state governments bailouts up to three times to settle the entitlements owed their workers, takes delight in punishing its own employees by denying them their legitimate benefits,” the Union stated.
