FG announces salary increase for Police, Military, DSS

Nigeria’s securitymen in the police, armed forces and the Department of State Services(DSS) and National Intelligence Agency, will also benefit from the upward review of salaries for Federal government workers, Minister of state for Labour and Employment hinted on Friday.

Festus Keyamo in a tweet announcing the breakthrough in talks with labour leaders over the consequential salary adjustment for other cadres of government workers, following the implementation of the N30,000 miniumum wage, said: “Those of the law-enforcement agencies have also been done, but are not captured in this Memorandum”.

Dr. Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour elaborated at a news conference on Friday that because the security personnel are not members of the civil service, their adjustments would be communicated to them through the appropriate channels.
