Federal Government workers’ salaries for the month of October, which remained unpaid at end of the month of October, will be paid by Tuesday, November 3, the Presidency has said.
According to a statement issued by the President’s spokesman, Mr Garba Shehu, some computers crashed, as the salaries were about being paid last month, making it difficult for workers to get their salaries by the end of October.
Mr Shehu said the President “is seriously concerned about the ordeals of civil servants on account of delayed payment of salaries”.
The statement emphasised that the happiness and welfare of the people were the cardinal objectives of any democratically elected government.
Mr Shehu also emphasised that President Muhammadu Buhari was committed to these objectives not only on paper but also in practice.
The Presidency further thanked Nigerians for their patience and understanding, adding that empathy would be the guiding philosophy of the Buhari administration.
