The Trade Union Congress (TUC) and Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) on Monday called on President Goodluck Jonathan to take necessary steps to ensure that all outstanding salaries and allowances owed public servants in the country are settled before his exit on 29th May, 2015.
TUC’s President, Comrade Bobboi Bala Kaigama , who warned the Government not to transfer outstanding salaries and allowances owed public servants as liabilities to the President Buhari led administration, said organized labour has directed workers in the country to be on “red alert for directives on appropriate actions to take”
Kaigama faulted the claim of the Finance Minister, Dr Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala that the Federal Government did not owe its workers, stressing that there are records to prove their demands.
He said: “Federal Government is owing salaries to some staff in the MDAs for the months of July, August, September, and October 2013 because their names were omitted in the pay rolls for no just reason. We have records to justify our claim”
