Civil servants and military to experience delay in May salaries

Civil servants under the employment of the Federal Government will experience a delay in the payment of their May 2023 salaries.


 Punch reports that the delay is due to the fact that Ministries, Departments and Agencies were yet to get debit approval from the Central Bank of Nigeria.


In a memo addressed to its workers, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) said the delay in the payment of workers was peculiar to all workers including the military and para-military. 


The memo which was signed by its acting General Manager, Administration, Oluwasola Awe, reads in part;


“This is to inform all staff that Management has uploaded salaries and is awaiting debit at the Central Bank of Nigeria. However, FAAN have been advised that the payment of May 2023 salary would be delayed beyond the normal cycle due to glitches from the CBN’s portal.

Please note that this situation is not peculiar to FAN alone as other MD’s including the Military and Paramilitary agencies are experiencing the same delay. Management appreciates your co-cooperation and understanding in this regard.”


Confirming the development, a source in the Office of the Head of Civil Service of the Federation said;

“Yes, it is true. There is an order freezing accounts of MDAs from above. That’s why the CBN could not debit accounts and this delayed the payment of salaries.”


The CBN is yet to react to deny or confirm this development.
