The Announcement by the Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning Mrs Zainab Ahmed, that salaries would be slashed and ministries merged has been generating reactions.
During Invicta’s open mic session on its Flagship Political Programme Perspectives, there were complaints as to the inhuman and inconsistent attitude to workers and what the multiplier effect will be.
The feedback from the callers was that of disdain on the decision of the federal government, saying their salaries are barely paid enough, adding that the cut should be on politicians pay
Meanwhile, in a reaction to this development, the President, Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Ayuba Wubba, has rejected and condemned the plans of the federal government to slash workers’ salaries, stating that, Nigerian workers can hardly survive on what they are currently earning, and that this, is coming at a wrong time.
He further stated that, the federal government should call the Minister of Finance to order, as her statement is such that can set the Nation on fire.
