Why we can’t increase civil servants’ salaries – Buhari

The President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, gave reasons why the Federal Government could not increase public servants’ salaries despite its desirability.

This was presented in a statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina in Abuja.

Responding to the committee’s request for the review of civil servants’ salaries, the President said while such a review was urgently needed due to global inflation, the Federal Government was working within tight revenue constraints caused by diversion of resources to urgent security threats nationwide, COVID 19 pandemic, and global economic turndown as a result of the ongoing Russian -Ukraine war.
