Civil servants are hungry, angry – Labour to Buhari

Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria, ASCSN, yesterday, pleaded with the Federal Government to take urgent steps and pay thousands of civil servants their outstanding salaries and allowances, lamenting that the workers were hungry and passing through very hard times.

In a statement in Lagos, the association also contended that the payment of the salary arrears and allowances would also stimulate the economy. ASCSN, in the statement by its Secretary-General, Alade Bashir Lawal, said: “We believe that since these federal civil servants and their dependents live in different parts of the country, if these outstanding entitlements are paid to them, it will have positive ripple effects on the economy and douse the tension in the land.

“There is anger and hunger in the country and as a patriotic trade union organisation, we have decided to bring this situation to the notice of government so that it can take necessary measures to stem the tide by doing the needful.” Read more
