FG owes retirees N293bn –  Head of Service, Oyo-Ita

- Advertisment -
The Head of Service of the Federation, Winifred Oyo-Ita has disclosed that the government is owing Federal Civil servants N293bn.
Oyo-Ita made this disclosure on Monday in Abuja while fielding questions from reporters after a press briefing in commemoration of the Civil Service Week, scheduled to commence on Wednesday.
According to her, the Presidency has directed the Minister of Finance, Mrs. Kemi Adeosun, and the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation to explore ways of offsetting the debt.
She said, “On assumption of office, I met service-wide staff claims for promotion arrears, first 28 days, repatriation allowance, death benefits and other staff claims totalling about N293bn. The issue was presented to Mr. President and he expressed deep concern and immediately directed the Minister of Finance to address the situation.
“The payments would have been made but for the resource constraints of the government. We are working with the Office of the Accountant-General of the Federation on the phased payment formula and would conclude in due course.”
