FG’s Plan To Slash Workers’ Salaries Wicked – PDP Laments

The Federal Government has made it known that there’s a possibility that workers’ salaries would be slashed because of the decrease in revenue to finance the national budget.

In response to this, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration for making moves to reduce workers’ salaries.

According to reports, PDP disclosed this on Sunday in a statement titled ‘PDP berates APC for instigating moves to slash workers’ salaries’, signed by the party national publicity secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan.

The statement read that, “The PDP describes as wicked and completely unacceptable that APC leaders could go after workers’ salaries even after their party, the APC, had endorsed the increase in the cost of fuel, electricity and other tariffs, leading to the steeply rise in the cost of food and other essential commodities beyond the reach of millions of Nigerians.”

It added that, “Rather than impose more hardship on our workers, the APC and its administration should realign the budget by removing their padded figures as well as end the exposed looting in the integrated payment system, where trillions of naira are being siphoned through non-existent workers and overheads.”

“Moreover, the APC and its administration should return the over N15 trillion stolen by APC leaders from various agencies of government and channel same to governance,” the statement disclosed.
