The Presidency has on Monday announced that Federal Government workers yet to be paid will get their October salaries Today, November 3, 2015.
According to a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu, the payment was delayed due to a technical issue that arose following the crash of key computers being used for salary payment.
He said “the delay was inadvertent, caused by unforeseen technical challenges.”
The statement further said, the President “is seriously concerned about the ordeals of civil servants on account of delayed payment of salaries.”
Malam Garba Shehu, while thanking Nigerians for their patience and understanding, emphasised that President Buhari “is committed to these objectives not only on paper but also in practice”.
”empathy would be the guiding philosophy of the Buhari administration,” he concluded.
