Buhari’s Directive On Salary Payment Impossible – AGF by NavierStokes(m): 7:16pm On Apr 24, 2016


After what appeared to be good news for Nigeria’s Federal Government workers, it is not hunky-dory after all as Ahmed Idris, Accountant-General of the Federation (AGF), has said that President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that federal workers be paid on the 25th of every month was not possible, because there was no cash to pay on that date every month.
This would come as a surprise to Federal Government workers as it was for Idris, who disclosed this on Wednesday to journalists in Abuja.
He said, paying salary on the 25th of every month would “be given a test, I believe, by this month.”
“There is a standing instruction of Mr. President to pay salary on or before the 24th or 25th of every month and we will try as much as possible to comply and to abide by that.
“We are taking a step further to make a provision whereby we can accommodate salary payments even before FAAC.
We will go to seek for necessary approval of our political masters to make sure that at least salary and other statutory payments are made even before FAAC.
“Because we can project how much they are and therefore we can prepare and hit the ground running to make them realisable and actualised.
“Even where we delay FAAC, we can still pay salary,” he said.
However, in a swift about-face, a statement by Mrs Kene Offie, Deputy Director of Press, Office of the Accountant General of the Federation, said: “There is an instruction from Mr. President that workers be paid on or before 24 or 25, but compliance has been hampered by the limited resources available to government, which can only be determined after the monthly FAAC (Federation Account Allocation Committee) meeting.”
The Federal Government has failed to meet its salary obligations, blaming the situation on falling oil prices at the international market.
And the AGF gave vent to this view after last week’s FAAC meeting when he opined that, “Nigeria is practically making about 30 to 40 per cent of what it used to make by way of revenue from oil and that has affected inflow generally.
“These inflows are what the federal, state and local governments receive to service the economy.
It is when we receive these resources and sit at the end of the month for FAAC that the resources are shared among the three tiers of government,” he said.

Can you see the incompetent nitwits?

During the last administration, Salaries were paid on or before 25th of every month, But since the coming of this dullardic administration, They are now being paid on the second week of the next month (you may call it 45th if you want). Now isn't that "change"?? - Negative change.

These days, I pity those people (including my acquaintances) in the civil service, Buhari has turned them to chronic debtors.

Even Buhari's self appointed AGF knows that Buhari is a Dullard, a gworo chewing and burukutu drinking stark illiterate and an Economic Assassin who knows nothing about the Economy.

But you looked at the technicalities involved, the process they have to pass through before payments are effected.
Anyways tomorrow is 25th we will be looking out for alerts on here and next month's 25th isn't too far either.

Lack of communication. I'm sure that kunu sipping president knows nothing about Nigeria's treasury.

The President would do everyone a favour, if he ran certain statements by his Technocrats, before releasing them to the public. It was very obvious that this was not possible, especially, in a time of recession

Spot on, in this government everyone seems to be a spokesperson leading to conflicting statements everywhere. Although in most cases the president seems to be in a "let there be light and there was light" mode, without minding the realities surrounding the implementation of those directives.
