National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC) has advised Ministries Department and Agencies (MDAs) to shelve every request for salary review and adjustment.
The Commission said the call became necessary due to the issue of the National Minimum Wage and the adjustments which are being contemplated and therefore until that is settled, all requests for salary reviews should be suspended.
The Chairman, National Salaries Incomes and Wages Commission (NSIWC), High Chief Richard Onwuka Egbule, stated this when he played host to a delegation from the National Environmental Standard and Regulation Enforcement Agency, NESREA led by its Director-General, Prof. Aliyu Jauro on a courtesy visit.
A statement from the Chief Press Secretary, Emma Njoku quoted High Chief Egbule to have informed his guests that a Committee to work out the consequential adjustment on salaries in the Public Service as a result of the minimum wage has been inaugurated by the Federal Government.
Earlier, the DG of NESREA, Prof Jauro complained that the IPPIS had suddenly removed some allowances being enjoyed by the agencies.
He explained that the Agency has written to the IPPIS for the restoration of these allowances to no avail.
