As a result of the impact of growing inflation, Chris Ngige, the minister of labour and employment, has revealed the federal government’s intention to propose salary increases for public and civil servants.

Following a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the minister shared this information with state house reporters, according to the Daily Trust.

Ngige revealed that the presidential committee is currently reviewing compensation and that changes to salaries are anticipated to be made in 2023.

Remember that the minister previously suggested that the Buhari administration will modify worker salaries to lessen the impact of the economic difficulties the nation is currently experiencing due to inflation.

Additionally, he revealed that the committee collaborates with the National Salary, Income, and Wage Commission.

The commission’s charter said that it had to decide on salaries, wages, and other important things for all parts of society.

He said:

“As we enter the New Year government will make some pronouncements in that direction.”

The government is aware that 2022 will be a year of labour unrest, the minister claimed. Other unions joined the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in demanding better working conditions and salaries.
