NIGERIA WAGES AND SALARIES ISSUES
Why are the state government workers’ salaries delayed? should ” half salary” even exist in Nigeria? There are so many homes in Nigeria that rely on their monthly income, how will they survive without their pay for more than 10 months? There has been indications that civil servants working with state government will be owed salaries in the coming month due to the shortfall of revenue (This our leaders no go kill person). Every single person in Nigeria knows we have a culture of not paying workers their dues.
In 2019, it was reported that 30 states have been owing their workers 13 months salary. we have lost so many medical practitioner to other countries because the Nigeria government treat them unfairly by paying them peanuts. despite the peanuts they pay, they still find it really difficult to pay their salaries monthly.
Four months ago, it was reported that some of Osun state’s civil servants have not been paid for 30 months. like 30 months?? that is ridiculous.!
I do not think owing workers what is due to them is fair considering that ,finding steady employment is really difficult in Nigeria.
