Civil Servants To Get January Salary From Today, FG Clarifies Reasons For Delay

The Federal Government has revealed that workers will start receiving their January salaries from Thursday evening  and Friday.

The Accountant General of the Federation attributed the delay to a glitch from the Government Integrated Financial Management System (GIFMIS) platform.

The delayed payment of January salaries for federal workers had raised concerns.

It was attributed to the Office of Accountant-General of the Federation’s non-completion of the 2024 appropriation on the GIFMIS platform.
