The Federal Government has hinted that civil and public officials may see salary increases in 2023 as a way to counteract rising inflation.
The Presidential Committee on Salaries has reportedly started a review and is anticipated to make a change in the new year.
After his Tuesday meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Minister of Labour and Employment Chris Ngige made the comment.
Ngige also referred to 2022 as an industrial dispute year.
The minister had, recently, suggested the government would adjust workers’ salaries to meet up with economic realities in the country.
“The Presidential Committee on Salaries is working hand-in-hand with the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission. The Commission is mandated by its establishing Act to fix salaries, wages, and emoluments in not only the public service.”
The expected timeframe for the new wage increase? As “we enter the New Year,” according to Ngige, “the government is anticipated to make certain announcements”.
